I received the most amazing call this afternoon! I was having kind of a blah morning…the first in a very long time. Jake is out of town and I was texting him that I felt like the day was less than great. Then the phone rings…..it might as well been God calling. Telling me to straighten up and put a smile on my beautiful face. The message that stuck with me from this delightful conversation from a new friend was this….”you have to find the grace in any given day”. Then he sent me an e-mail me, thanking me for the conversation and signed it….”Blessings on your day and on all the kisses of grace hidden in it”. Isn’t that the most beautiful message? Think about it…did any of you wake up this morning and wondering where you would find a kiss of grace today? Who uses such profound words in their everyday?
Well, it got me thinking about yesterday. The hidden graces of yesterday was when I got a call from the vet that said that Keeta doesn’t have cancer:) She has a couple benign tumors that developed overnight that looked shady enough that they had to do a biopsy and said that it didn’t look too good:( We had a couple sad moments with the kids just trying to prepare them for some sad news, but that she would be just fine and God knew what he was doing. She is fine….and she does have allergies that we are trying to figure out, but she is here in our lives to keep smiles on our faces and joy in our heart.
Today was an incredible reminder to me that there are many hidden graces in my every day. I am quite aware of them when they happen, but I have never had the words put so gracefully to the process of discovering them. They are right in front of us…so many things to be grateful for…we just have to remind ourselves that we are looking for them;) Thank you mystery caller for your kind words today and for lighting my soul on fire when I was least expecting it. I know that there are many reasons that you are in my life and I am more than grateful that God showed me your path. Here’s to the kisses of the rest of the day….I will patiently wait for the adventures of tomorrow.
