A Gift



I wonder if God holds each new day in His loving, caring hands...
Caressing it as only a Creator could...
Staring adoringly at it as only a loving Father could...
Excited as only the ultimate Giver could be.


I wonder if His Heart is overflowing with love as He prepares it for us...


If His mind is full of great anticipation as He sends such a beautiful gift to us each morning.


Does He wonder what beautiful things we will do with it?
What glorious things we will say about it?
How many times we will thank Him for it?


I wonder if we break His heart when we toss it aside.


If we make Him sad as we
Fill it with trivial things...
Miss the beauty in it ...
Forget to thank Him...
and take it for granted yet again.

God Bless.

Beautiful reflection.
One of the prayers I say every morning says "and thank you for having preserved me this night"
I try to never take each day for granted, and to thank God every day for the blessings He bestows upon me.

I love this post Michael! God is all around us. He gives us beautiful gifts all day long every day. I have always been one to appreciate every little thing and find joy. It's so important. It's what God wants for us all. I hope you and your family are blessed with the most amazing Christmas and New Year. Thank you for being my bloggy friend. God bless you Michael today and every day!

I'm sure it does make God sad when we don't appreciate all of the wonderful things He has blessed us with. I don't remember who said it but I love the quote "If the only prayer you ever say is "Thank You" that will be enough.

Thanks for this post!
