God in all things

I actually sat through an entire Church service yesterday!! Payton wasn't thrilled about being left in nursery but she's old enough to let Mom and Dad enjoy a full service!! So I was sitting there listening to the music and felt closer to God than I had in a long time. It was so good. It made me want to look for God a little harder in my everyday life. I thought I'd share what I found.


Where do I see God?

-in the face of my daughter
-in the miracle of pregnancy
-in the beauty of the sunrise as it brings the promise of a new day
-in hands raised high in worship
Where do I feel God?

-in hugs from family and friends
-in prayer when his arms are wrapped tightly around me
-in nature where he is all around

Where do I taste God?

-every time I eat as that means I will not go hungry
Where do I hear God?

-in the wind through the trees
-in worship music
-in the laughter of a child

Where do I smell God?

-in the freshness after the rain
-in the coffee Rod puts on for me before he leaves

I have been getting people telling me they can't comment due to the whole blogger/beta blogger thing. I just tried it out and you can post Anonymously. YEAH!!

I am enjoying the new Beta Blogger but am finding the in between stage a little fustrating. Kinda like growing your hair out and being stuck at that annoying middle length that you can't do anything with. I think it will be better once everyone is switched.
