Life's Little Surprises

Saturday night I received a message telling me that church would be delayed due to icy roads. Translation - Extra Sleep! After a long night's sleep (which is pretty rare for me), I woke up Sunday morning, smiling inside because of the extra rest. Just as I started to climb out of bed, my bedroom door burst open with my favorite teenager standing there grinning ear to ear. She woke up early and made me breakfast in bed (oatmeal and blueberry muffins). What a sweetheart!

Still feeling incredibly grateful for my morning surprise, I decided to let Jorjanne have a friend over after church. We went to lunch, and when I went to pay my meal, I was shocked to learn that someone else had already paid for it.

Too often we only hear the negative things that are happening in the world around us. I believe that even though we live in a very fallen world, God gives us glimpses of his goodness through the kindness of others. Motivated by my daughter's love and the generosity of friends, I plan to look for opportunities this week to bring joy into the lives of others around me. Will you join me on this venture?
