orange and blue

There was a day last December when I invited you to join me for to celebrate the small and sacred gifts of the daily. We called it Everyday Unwrapped. I loved that idea so much, I decided to do it here every week.

What began as an experiment of living in the moment has slowly evolved into a habit of seeing on purpose. I’m becoming an intentional noticer and it is leading me into thankfulness for things beyond the obvious. For the mess as well as the masterpeice. For the unexpected as well as the well-laid plans. One thing I am beginning to see about thankfulness is that it is impossible unless I have first received.

To notice the love my husband has for me is polite. To receive it as a gift leads me to thankfulness. And to love in return.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.  James 1:17

What gifts are waiting for you that you have not yet received? May they lead you to a heart of thankfulness.
