A Day of Blessings

Ever had a day that just felt intense? Yesterday was one of those days. I awoke knowing that the day would be filled with thoughts about major life stuff. Rather than spend a fruitless day in worry, I decided right then that I'd give the day to God. Prayer, fasting, and an entire day of conversation with the Father.

I walked the trail (because I do some of my best praying there) and had a great conversation with Him. And right there, He reminded me of something really important.

"Remember that prayer you prayed last week, right here on this trail? Well, guess what. This is the answer to that prayer."

I just love those moments when God speaks plainly into my simple heart.

That night, I read the most appropriate devotion from Spurgeon.

It was God's not so subtle way of saying "Let's do this every day!"

Blessings. I've had more than just a few lately.

I made this card to pass those blessings on to someone who needs them.

Shopping from my stash again! This time, I used elements from Crate Paper's Pretty Party collection. The diecut word "bless" comes from PTI. The die actually says "blessed", but I cut off the "ed" at the end. (I'll have to save that "ed" and use it on a card for my husband...tee hee!)

Bless you, cafe friends!
