{Treasure Hunts From Gifts Long Ago - from the Moms Against Manic Mondays archives}

God has had me on a bit of a treasure hunt.  

Digging for blessing I missed along the way.  Digging for blessings I buried along with hurt.
This has all the more encouraged Eucharisteo living in me. 

Thanksgiving.  Grace.  Joy.

Recording blessings.  Recording gifts.

Recognizing their disguise.  Recognizing wool covered eyes. 

As I look  ahead to a week of work, all the things that need to be done, the right things to do or accomplish, the  difficult things to do...I find my thoughts unyielding: confusion clouds my way,...but how needful it is to acknowledge the Lord in all I do: But, then when I bow to you, the challenges you guide me through.

I bless & encourage you to begin your day with the Lord!  Not to schedule Him in or  to mark it off a to do list, or because you're "supposed" to. 
No,  because He is our air.  

He breathed into me, He breathed into my  formless dust and I became; I became His.  

I am imperfect and I forget.   And that's just okay.  It would be weird if I was, wouldn't it?  It  would cause some crazy universal paradigm shift if we attained  perfection here on the earth.  He knows.  And He's good with that  for the time being.  Remember, He's told us of His big plans...  :)

Smith Wigglesworth often said this, "I never pray for longer than 15 minutes but I never let 15 minutes pass without praying."

And when asked how he begins his days, he stated, "I don't ever ask 'Smith Wigglesworth' how he feels! I jump out of bed! I dance before the Lord for at least 10 to 12 minutes - high speed dancing. I jump up and down and run around my room telling God how great he is, how wonderful He is, how glad I am to be associated with Him and to be His child."

How great is that?!  ;)

Blessings.  Gifts.  

Thanksgiving, grace, joy.  

I freely admit, some days they're really easy for me to miss, other days not so much.  Less and less days are not so much.  :)

I bless you today with eyes to see them and hearts to recognize them:  don't miss the blessings in disguise this day.  :)  


Psalm 118:24 (amp)

"This is the day which the Lord has brought about;
we will rejoice and be glad in it!"

I desire to recognize what is my part of the "manic" in Mondays, and do what I can to change it.

I desire to live abundantly in the Mondays.
I desire to thrive in each day; to dance them in along with the sun.
