A Little Gift for You and Me

Well, okay.  This morning began with 4 separate problems, one of which could turn out to be expensive seeing as the kids’ goo play stuff was accidentally put into a food storage container, which was accidentally ran through the dishwasher, and now said goo stuff is all over the dishes and hopefully won’t gum up our plumbing lines.  No Internet, no phone service.  Someone used the toaster oven and didn’t see special plastic ware temporarily placed on top of it, thus the plastic ware I needed melted.  I could go on, but why bore you with details!

I am grateful for the big stuff like my husband’s flight landed safely last night, and we are all in good health, but boy howdy the small stuff in life deflates me!

Once upon a time, I went to my doctor because I kept getting a tingling sensation in my hands.  Her solution was simple…breathe.  I guess when life gets its panties in a wad, I forget to breathe properly.  Later, this little gem was discovered in a small store and knew it was a perfect reminder!

Looking down this morning beside my computer, staring glassy-eyed at the “no Internet access” window, I saw this little reminder below.  I’m using it today and am gifting it’s message to you as well, in case you’ve got a gooey dishwasher, or a banged up bumper from being rear-ended, or a cracked windshield from a dump truck’s loose rocks, or a mysteriously defrosting refrigerator, or anything else we share in common.

Need it today?  Feel free to use it. 🙂

I’m making my order a combo and bundling this message to breathe with today’s devotion from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. (Spoken from Jesus’ perspective) “Approach each day with desire to find Me…There are hidden treasures strategically placed along the way…some treasures are trials…others are blessings that reveal My Presence…I have not abandoned this sin-wracked world; I am still richly present in it.  Search…and you will find Me along the way.”

Today doesn’t have to be a total loss just because of a rocky start.  Neither does my attitude.  March on,we will, with Philippians 4:13 as our battle cry – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Ready?  Let’s go!

  1. OMW The “not breathing” used to grasp me when the 4 “B’s” were in the age group of “BSP” causing headaches from lack of oxygen to the brain……..Take my advice, breathing is better. LOL MOM

    • A deep breath can change an entire perspective. And when God breaths on us, it can change a life. Thanks for writing!! Love you, too! 🙂
