Do you really see everything?

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good (Psalm 106:1).

“Could that get any more adorable?” That was my most recent shopping trip this week. I was out getting groceries, a task I don’t really like, and I popped into a local five-and-dime store. There is one in every neighbourhood it seems, and my task was just to look and see what said, “buy me!”  As I shopped, I picked out a little of this, a lot of that, and a few treats, just for me. I kept in mind that the next day I was watching my youngest grandson who was battling a recurring stomach bug (not COVID). His parents had to work so he was spending “spoiling time” with me. My journey took me through the book section. Not expecting to find anything Christian my eyes rested on the cutest books you ever did see; “Thoughts for everyday…” written in a childlike manner. I could hear the words jumping off the pages, laughter in the questions, whimsical inquires like “When it rains…are you sad?” and the innocence of the children when they think of our Lord. “Do you really see everything?”

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight…” (Hebrews 4:13).

I wanted to sing that song… “I won’t grow up” by Mary Martin from the movie Peter Pan as I stood and read each book. Of course, they said BUY ME! So, I did!  We don’t live in a Neverland like Peter Pan; we live in a world full of wonders and if we take the time as children do, we will see the beauty in our world full of the promises of our Lord. 

So as our district conventions get closer, fill out those registrations, book accommodations and look forward with excitement to getting together with your sisters in Christ. For two plus years we have had Zoom meetings, Go-to-Meeting get-togethers and limited contact. it’s now time to celebrate! Remember God’s promise…

“I will instruct you and teach you in the ways you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you” (Psalm 32:8).

I look forward to all the pictures, the excitement of stories as ladies who haven’t seen each other in a long time get together, and the pictures of the mission walks throughout our beautiful country!

P.S. My grandson, with all my spoiling, is feeling much better!
