Beauty in the Mess ~ You’re an Overcomer!

I sat in my crushed car, reeling from the shock of a five car accident that totaled my car. After the policemen took us to a nearby strip mall so I sat in the car waiting.

“Mom, look. Look at the flowers. Mom, these are some of your favorite flowers!” I turned around in the car seat and spotted my son, Alex, standing by a group of three, deep pink crepe myrtles.

I groaned. For a moment I thought it was rather insensitive to be telling me to look at the flowers instead of empathizing with my loss.

Harsh Words Wound ~ Kind Word Bring Healing

Today, I stopped at a fast food/small grocery in our small town. I chatted with a friend outside who highly recommended the grilled chicken salad with pineapple, blueberries and strawberries. So I ordered it and it lived up to her raving. Delicious!

The young woman who waited on me at the counter went out of her way with her thoughtfulness and consideration of me as a customer.

I make an effort to recognize good customer service so I thanked her and complimented her on her considerate ways. “Her eyes teared a little as she smiled, “Thank you for saying that to me.” A woman customer yelled at me earlier. You know sometimes it gets so hectic here and it’s difficult to keep up.”

Experiencing What is Sacred and Holy

To be able to discover what is sacred and holy
To experience and celebrate the beauty
To be able to worship freely and wholeheartedly
To have the wisdom to take time to do so
To know the One who is worthy of our worship
This a great privilege to enjoy today and every day
