Hey everyone and happy Monday to you!
I started my Monday off by receiving a surprise gift when I opened the curtains.
Not only did it snow again but we also had visitors.
There’s something extra peaceful about freshly fallen snow. Couple that with a family of deer and I would say that God was giving me the exactly what I needed today.
An overwhelming dose of peace.
God alway seems to deliver just what is needed and He always seems to overwhelm me with his perfect timing.
Today’s Music Monday song is Overwhelmed by Big Daddy Weave.
Have a fabulous week!
I just absolutely love this song because it’s so true!
Have a great week!
The first time I heard this song was this past fall while working the Compassion table at a Tenth Avenue North concert. The minute I heard it I loved it so much and I couldn’t get the words out of my head.
Though I didn’t really realize it at the time, a major surgery, the death of my brother, and another surgery happening in the near future had me really out of sorts physically and emotionally.
For the next several months the song became like my theme song.
There were times when the physical and emotional pain became quite overwhelming. But every time I began to feel like I couldn’t take anymore this song would come on the radio and suddenly I would be singing it to God.
I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go (lyrics by Tenth Avenue North)
As I would sing the words, I could feel his presence and the reassurance that he was right beside me through it all.
I have heard people say during hard times to cling to God, and I have done so. But how comforting it is to know that he is also holding on to me.
I have this Hope in the depth of my soul…..
This afternoon I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things and while I was in the store I noticed two young couples pushing a cart with a baby in it. I just love babies so as I passed I peeked into the cart hoping to catch a glimpse of the baby.
I could just barely see the top of the baby’s teeny tiny little head sticking out from under the blankets. “Awww! how sweet, a brand new one!” I said. They all looked at me oddly and nobody said anything back to me. Feeling a little bit uncomfortable I just kept moving on down the aisle hoping they didn’t think I was some sort of baby-napper who had plans of stealing their baby.
When I reached the end of the aisle I heard them all burst out laughing.
Suddenly I had a feeling they were laughing at me.
As I continued down the next aisle I could still hear them laughing in the aisle next to me.
Soooo…. as you know I just couldn’t help myself from eavesdropping on their conversation. After all, if they were laughing at me I needed to know what is was they were laughing about.
It wasn’t long before I knew the answer….
The baby wasn’t real!
Yep you guessed it! … The teeny tiny little baby head I’d seen sticking out from under the blanket just so happened to be one of those learning dolls that they use in school to teach teenagers what it’s like to be a parent.
For a moment I felt embarrassed but then suddenly I couldn’t help but laugh at me too 🙂 🙂 🙂
Silly me 😀
I usually consider it a pretty good day if I can make just one person laugh each day. Today I made 4 people laugh.
Five if I count myself.
I hope it made you laugh too 😀
Have a great day,
