Another Great Day to Praise the LORD!!!

Today is the day the Lord has made!
I will rejoice and be glad in it!!!

It’s 37 degrees in Peoria, AZ this morning.  All I wanted to do was stay snuggly warm under the covers.

Didn’t happen!  I went outside to turn off the water that we let trickle during the night to keep the pipes from freezing, and that’s when I saw them, all around me in the rocks --- tiny seedlings of African daisies scattered everywhere peeking out from between the landscaping stones. 

Wow!  God is so great.  He’s so good.  Everywhere we look, we find evidence of His goodness in the beauty He made for us to enjoy.  Even in the coldest of weeks, record-breaking cold here, He makes things to show up that He’s been cultivating long before we knew about them.

What’s up in your life?  Where has God shown you His goodness lately?  Is there something that He’s done for you that took Him much time and great care to cultivate or generate that has just appeared in your line of vision when you least expected it?  It could be as simple as a smile from the barista at the drive-through that you’ve been talking to every day, or as big as an unexpected bonus right when you needed it to pay for an unanticipated repair or dr. visit.

God is good!!!  Let Him know that you notice.  Tell Him about it!  Praise Him for all He is and does in your life.  This is another great day He has prepared just for you and me.  Let’s rejoice!!!  Thank you, Father!!!
