See if I will not open the
windows of heaven for you
and pour down for you an overflowing blessing.
He doesn't wait for birthdays or special occasions.
He wraps each new day in a sunrise and presents it to you with open arms.
He's prepared not just one perfect gift,
but more blessings than you can count.
The first breath you take when you awake,
a cup of coffee to sip,
a hand to hold,
a memory that makes you smile. . .
every single moment of your life is filled with more blessings
than your human mind can possibly comprehend.
But, that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
Take a moment right now,
Ask God to make you aware of the blessings
He is bringing your way today.
Bask in His goodness.
Then, offer Him a thank~you note of praise.
The best things are nearest;
breath in your nostrils,
light in your eyes,
flowers at your feet,
Duties at your hand,
the path of God just before you.
Robert Louis Stevenson
