If I may quote George Strait on this one.... I saw God today.

Sometimes I write because I have an actual story to tell.  Sometimes I write because there are so many thoughts racing through my head that I can't slow them down till I type it out.  And sometimes writing to me is rest.  A quiet place that is all mine, but I invite y'all in to share. 

And sometimes I write because my heart has felt, or my eyes have seen, or my face has smiled. 

And I see and hear God in so many ways and days and places and people.  In work and rest and searching and stumbling upon.  And I know it's him.  Because I recognize it as the caring work of a friend who leaves me gifts all around -  like friends to bump into unexpectedly, and the beauty of these last fall days whose colors were enough to make me slow down and stare.

Like one of my favorite George Strait songs says, I saw God today

Have you?  I'd love to hear about it. 

My prayer today.....

God you are our place of safety and rest.  Our place of peace in a busy world.  Help us today to see the good news of your daily gifts.  Give us peace in our sleep and waking, and friends to keep along the way.  Help us to carry our thanks with us daily while giving credit to you who made it all. Help us to see the world through your eyes, and know the peace of your presence on this day.  Amen.

Happiest Thanksgiving to you.  I am thankful for you.
