Thankful Thursday 8-27-2020

Thankful Thursday tests the oven throttle today by cranking the the temperatures to the mid-90s here in central Pennsylvania! Quite the difference from one week age! And as the temperature has risen, so too have the wind speeds.


As I peek outside, the green vegetation is showing off its flexibility and spectrum of color as it dances in the wind and the sunlight. At times moving rapidly enough to create quite a sound effect (and a spectacle!) These wonders of nature stop me in my tracks as I pause to take in the awesomeness of Creation.


These wonders and gifts receive sprinkles of joys each and every day. The small joy of your first cup of coffee warming your hands. Or the quiet backdrop of your home as you take in God’s Word while preparing for your day. (This morning’s for me: John 14:27.) Sprinkled joy reaches the realm of connection: a shared smile with a stranger on the street, a “pay-it-forward” kindness given in the drive thru, or letting another know they were on your heart and lifted in your prayers.


Wrapped in wonder, sprinkled with joy, our lives brim with blessing. As you step forward through your day, may your eyes see the beauty and blessing of Creation. May your heart receive the little sprinkles of joy tucked throughout your day. And when the day ends, reflect on the sweetness of the experience and care that surrounded each moment of your day with the joyful dashes too.
