Today’s post is written by my friend (and regular guest contributor) Debra Dickey. Thank you, Debra, for sharing your beautiful thoughts!
Sometimes……the slow person in front of you is in front of you to remind you to be patient.
Sometimes……the end to your lucky streak is to remind you of how fortunate you have been and still are.
Sometimes……what you perceived as an ‘error’ actually happened because it was the better option.
Sometimes……the change that you are not happy with is an incentive to better the situation.
Sometimes……a face that you didn’t expect to see just makes your day! Or was that a cookie?
Sometimes……when you are outside viewing the colossal sky filled with the vast number of stars and constellations, some of which you cannot identify, your son will suddenly say, “I have an app for that!”
Sometimes……in the middle of January’s 20 degree temperatures, it warms up to 55 degrees!
Sometimes……you cannot even imagine the program that is running in the background of your life, until the beautiful evidence is illustrated.
Sometimes……the kindnesses that you send out into the world come back to you, and you are humbled.
Sometimes……you have nothing to hang on to, but you do.
Sometimes……the blessing are truly in disguise.
Sometimes……the puzzles are not puzzles at all. (Vera Nazarian)
Sometimes……it’s not what was accomplished, but rather, if His Will was done.
Sometimes……the universe aligns with such clarity, that there is no mistaking Who is in charge!
Sometimes……the wonder and awe of His Presence is so infused that mankind cannot behold it.
Sometimes……now, the grass is too tall to take the path less traveled.
Sometimes……these treasures, in their own right, allow us an audience with God. The whispers, the roars, the accomplishments, the defeats, the soldiering, the shouldering, the hidden, the luminesced, the white sands, the black shadows, the great and the small, each a brushstroke from His palette, details of essence and life.
Tiny specks in the Cosmos — that which we are not privileged to view the entirely of — we are finite beings on our portion of this journey. In unexpected ways and unforeseen places, may we recognize Him, within each discovery, each vivid contrast and fluent extreme, and at every impress.
Sometimes….. all that we have is not enough; all that we offer is.
Sometimes….. the seemingly insignificant is the supreme task.
