Something to think about

Thoughts to blog about come to me all the time...

... on Sunday morning while listening to my husband preach (can't write a blog then).

... while having a pedicure (ain't gonna write a blog then, fo sho).

... while driving down the road (probably not the best time to write either).

But one did come to me last tonight as I was taking a shower.

Have you ever noticed how things just seem to come to you then: items you need to put on a grocery list, an email you need to return or maybe a bill you need to pay?

Well, last tonight as I looked at my shower head, something that has been needing attention was staring right at me... that being the big gaping hole that is surrounding the pipe attached to our shower head.

This particular pipe broke off behind the wall and to fix said pipe a hole was made to get to the concealed break.

Only one phone call needs to be made to fix it.

ONE. That's it.

Do you know when we think to make that phone call? Yep, you probably guessed it, only when we take a shower. And that is when another bloggy idea came to me.

When do we think of God? Is it only when we come to church on Sunday mornings or Wednesday nights?

What about when something is broke in our life and needs fixing, is that when He comes to our mind?

He is so much more than just our handyman or our Sunday morning entertainer.

Something to think about, isn't it? I never want to take Him for granted and I so long to know the fullness of who He is!!

I watched the sun go down last tonight from my front yard.

Now this, most definitely, makes me think of God!! Only the creator of the universe can paint a sunset like that... especially in Lake City, FL.

I would really love to hear your thoughts and comments on these questions... When do you think of God, or what makes you think of God? And who do you say He is?

Just click on "Comments" below and give us a glimpse into your world!

Can't wait to see, I mean read all about it! (Smiles)

p.s. A great resource to learn about the fullness of God and to see Him in a differnt light is the book The Shack, by William P. Young.

I see God's beautiful handy-work in sunrises, sunsets, storm clouds, rainbows, lightning, baby calfs and donkeys in the fields, blooming crepe myrtle, mist rising through the trees in the early morning ....
None of these things can happen by chance.
I know what you mean.

When I stand at my kitchen window watching my children happily playing outside. I think of God and am overwhelmed with gratitude.

Recently, we took our children to Sea world. So many aquariums with all those tiny amazing creatures. I see God in His beautiful creations. I know, i'm a big kid.

Read the Shack, couldn't put it down.

Love your blog! I always look forward to reading it.
