I am so abundantly blessed. Not that I have a lot of wealth, but I have good health, have my senses, and appreciate all of them.
My eyes see and enjoy God’s glory—carousing of deer, hummingbirds zipping around my feeders, all the other birds flitting about; dolphins fishing and occasionally leaping out of the water, the rare sighting of a whale going by. And we advance to hearing, and listening to the lovely chirping songs as the birds sing and give praise to their Creator.
Of course, there are smells—roasting meat, baked products, roses and other flowers, and even a dirty diaper. But it’s life and our Creator has given us so much. Then we move on to the sense of taste. Hmm, I appreciate yummy food. Appreciate it way too much. There are certainly not many foods I don’t like be it salty, sweet, vegetables, meat, and pizza, fresh European breads, and so much more.
With all these senses I’m reminded how God has richly blessed my life; colors, nature, and more importantly wonderful friends and family. My life is rich.
It is so abundantly awesome to me thinking of all the blessings around me, and throughout my life. I could never record all of them, but there are many, and it is so easy for me to see and be thankful for them now.
So if even the birds can sing happily to Him, how much more should we? Sit back and take in God’s bounty with appreciation. He loves hearing your praise.
Take a moment to see what your blessings are….brings a big smile doesn’t it? I’m sharing a few of mine. Hope you enjoy.
Thank you God, for the blessings you’ve bestowed on me and ‘mybellaviews.’
