A True Delight

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

This morning I find myself sitting alone on a balcony in Key West looking out over the water and feeling totally overwhelmed by the blessings of God.

As I sit here contemplating the fact that as a child I never even dreamed of visiting so many of the places I have been blessed to see and experience, I am truly overwhelmed by His goodness and love for me.

He created me to have a deep love for nature and a desire for adventure...and He is giving me opportunities to do those very things.

He has blessed me with a wonderful and supportive husband who is not only 'okay' with me taking these adventures, but encourages me to do so -- both with and without him.

He has blessed me with dear friends that have become like family and who are a blast to travel and explore the world with. Let's be honest, there are not a lot of people that you would want to spend five days with in close quarters.

He has blessed me with a job that allows me these little getaways without sacrificing time away with my family later in the summer.

And there are so many more...I just want to give Him glory today.

I pray that He would help us all to more readily recognize the many times that He just flat out SPOILS us with His goodness and love for us.

Shalom from the Florida Keys!

You are right. As Christians we do need to stop and see all the little things God does for us on a daily basis. Not just the big blessings but the every day blessings. Those are the ones we truly take for grant it or worse claim that we did it ourselves. Hope the 3 of you are having a blast!!!
