Hello! What a beautiful morning we had today! It was warm and sunny, and
hopefully it put you in a good mood, just like it did to me! I went outside to fill my bird feeders, and decided to sweep out the garage, simply because it was so nice out. I came back in, opened a window, and then sat down in my living room to read my daily devotional and Bible. As I sat there enjoying the sunshine streaming in through the window, I was reminded of the verse from James 1:17, which reads "Every good gift and every perfect give is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."
That verse, then, reminded me of the song "All Good Gifts" from Godspell. Some of you may remember that musical from the 1970s. I loved it then, and still love it today. So naturally, I went to YouTube to listen to the song. And as I sat there listening, I was reminded of all the "good gifts" I have received over the past week: the phone calls from many of you - checking up on me! The energy to thoroughly clean my kitchen, including washing all the cupboards off (I've been wanting to do that for a looong time!) The rest I've been getting since we're asked to stay home. The time to catch up on my reading. I could go on and on and on, because I am feeling more blessed than ever!
I hope you are feeling blessed today too. If so, "reply all" and share what you"re grateful for. And in case you want to listen to the song, I've included a link to it below. I also included a link to the song "Praise You in the Storm." It's another favorite. Enjoy! And thank God today for all that you have.
