August 6, 2016

WHO among us does not want to be astonished with delight!?


I recently challenged you to share a story about  time you were ASTONISHED WITH DELIGHT then, in the comment section, provide a link so we can share our blogs to new folks as they read the delightful example!   To Participate, click here for the original post.  I will add your post/blog link to this list!  These moments are sometimes earth shattering, but are often a small act of kindness.  Share your joy!

A great example comes from SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS who shows us that the flood from a hurricane can become a flood of joy in the following story!

 We went to NC one year right after Hurricane Katrina. The following Hurricane was still lingering. The hotel we booked was flooded, were told to drive inland 7 miles before attempting to find a hotel. All the diver shops didn’t take reservation. But a group of marine was passing by and wanted to dive. My husband was happy and lucky to have this group coming by. He had the deepest dive in that trip.  Be sure to read  SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS  for more uplifting writings, as well as any of the following:

How about you?

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”  Zephaniah 3:16-18


A Great Quote To Begin The Day

June 20, 2012

What does the word “share” bring to your mind?  Perhaps it’s a thought of the kids fighting over a toy and “I wish they’d share.”  How do we teach them?  Perhaps, it’s a book you just read that “I can’t wait to give to Sue.”  Could be the last cookie in the jar . . . broken in half, it becomes a treat for two. 

Sharing is a tough concept in our world today.  We seem to have raised generations of people who are driven to acquire, to have it all.  We have so much more than previous generations and yet we aren’t satisfied.  We lack joy.  What is the answer?  I think this quote sums it up well.  Share something precious today!  God did.  He gve us His only Son.  Look for Him in the eyes of all whom you meet today . . . and smile!

There is no delight in owning anything unshared.
