Good Things

There are good things all around if we look for them.

A curly, red-headed boy was my bedside wake-up call today.
Seeing him, and feeling the hope of a new life within....

     I am feeling slow, tired, and heavy today.  I wanted so badly to throw the covers over my head and linger in bed.  I was not excited about greeting all the little faces waiting on me today.  I am tired of singing the same songs for weeks and doing the same silly dances.  My clumsy shape these days makes it all a bit difficult.  Something about the sunshine and the sounds floating in from the playground this morning help me to think about the good things.  I am singing the songs and dancing the dances.  I am able to be here, and God has given us a beautiful day.  He is good, His love is good, and even this day is full of His good things if I only choose to see.

Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow (James 1:17).
