I have really enjoyed reading everybody’s ideas for the holidays. I stumbled upon a great idea for displaying Christmas cards here. There is a video clip here that is absolutely one of the funniest I have ever seen about motherhood. Everyone who has a mother will appreciate it!!! 🙂 At Christmas, we talk of the birth of Christ. This often leads to thoughts of Mary, but what of Joseph…So, He Got Up is very thought provoking and challenging.
Last, but not certainly not least. . . How many times a day do we dismiss the small things as coincidence? Recently, I was reminded of the fact that God orchestrates the events in our life, large and small, to reveal Himself to us. God is a God of love. He cares about the little things that are important to us, just like we care about the little things that important to our loved ones. In the morning, I stated to my husband that I missed Constant Comment tea. I can buy so many things here, but that isn’t one of them. I enjoy this tea, especially at this time of the year. I wasn’t sad, just a little wistful. That afternoon, I had to go to my storage pantry at the church to get some Splenda. I was having a very difficult time finding it and as the minutes went by, I was also getting a little frustrated. Where was that Splenda!!!!! I climbed on a chair and reached up to feel around on the top shelf and pulled out a little zip-lock bag. Guess what was in it??!! Individually packaged Constant Comment tea bags!!!! I have no idea how they got there, but I can assure you that God knows and He planned my Splenda search so that I would find them just when I needed some special encouragement from Him!
