Welcome! In today's devotion I talked about cultivating a "zesty life." About intentionally enjoying life - to the glory of God its creator - through the simple pleasures in our days.
This morning I slept in after driving home late last night from the talent show at the rustic summer camp my kids are at this week. I arose to see a scarlet red cardinal out my windows. I watched him. His coloring is outstanding – I especially love to see cardinals in the snow at wintertime. Then I thought of the verse about not a single sparrow falling to the ground without God’s knowledge, and how God cares even more intensely about you and me. I gave God thanks for the way He cares for me most care-fully.
So today I’m on a mission to notice the little evidences of God’s care – and to enjoy each one, starting with the breakfast on my kitchen table. I will not be rushing through saying grace, but genuinely thanking Him for the size, color, taste and healthful benefits of blueberries. And I plan to savor those berries!
What can you notice or do to feed your enthusiasm for this day?
Care to share something beautiful from your day so far?
Thankful for birds and berries.
