Blessings are all around if only you take the time to notice.
It can be so easy to focus on what's wrong and ...get frustrated.
I prefer to discover what's good and ...appreciate it.
This week in our school, we had fun getting ready for Miss Vicki's birthday. The children had to get in on the decorations too.
I told her that nobody made God. He has always been. She looked at me with her head slanted to the side and said, "God made the earth and the flowers and the trees. They are so beautiful. But who made God?" I tried to once more tell her that God existed before anything and that He has always been. She shrugged and continued walking saying "The sky is so beautiful". You never know what a child will ask or say. So much was going on inside her little four year old head. Praise God!
So I continue to count those every day blessings.
