I read an awesome post on Wednesday by Mandy Steward. She told the story of a little boy and his prayers. The mom so convicted over her own prayers being safe and ordinary she stopped and thanked God for the extraordinary, simple things. (Read the post.)
My heart was roused to thank God for the seemingly ordinary, but are really extraordinary things.
Dear Lord you are most generous in the blessings you’ve given me. I thank you for…bracelets that look like threaded gumballs. Green shoes. Pen & paper and the ability to pour forth my heart. Dark purpley eye shadow. Laptops. Lattes.
For precious pictures by a more precious little girl in India.
Thank you for frozen yogurt, mango frozen yogurt, coconut frozen yogurt, and the Mochi I love topping it with. For text messaging & Twitter. Starbucks pumpkin cream cheese muffins….smelly good candles…and Autumn! Thank you ear plugs.
Thank you for giant Chihuahua ears.
Thank you for funky & outrageous colored nail polishes. For sleep in, lazy Saturdays….And awesomely funky tights. For sweet wine, and cupcakes…oh and brownies too.
What extraordinary ordinary things can you thank Jesus for today?
