Simple Blessings

At 4:30am, she came into our room and said that she had a dream about giants. I prayed with her and rocked her for a bit and carried her back to bed. As she snuggled in she said, “Mom, I want to pray now.” Then she continued, “God, I pray for my bad dreams because now I can pray to you.” She went on to ask for His protection and good sleep and she drifted back off. She totally blew me away. For a four year old little princess to be thankful for a bad dream because it gave her one more chance to pray to God…just amazing. Blessing #1024.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1017. She sings “Free to be me” at the top of her lungs on the way into church…

1018. …while wearing an aqua floral dress, white and pink polka dot tights, pink stripped socks and red ruby glitter shoes. (she IS free and I love it!)

1019. An awesome sermon delivered by Paul Mills…broken and empty, we should pour ourselves out freely (not sparingly) in service and sacrifice for God.

1021. Our Sunday School class- the insightful conversation and flow of the Spirit in that room is just refreshing.:)

1022. When she sings (loud and often) the words may not always be right, but her heart is spot-on!

1023. It’s 8:30am on a Monday and I am still in my PJs…reading the Word and blogging these blessings. That is a miracle and blessing all in itself.
