No calls or visits in awhile
No laughter hugs or smiles
Not that apart by many miles
So is being together on trial?
Nights and days pass away,
Without checking to see if everything OK
Wondering how long will this separation stay
The bonds of togetherness seem to be in disarray
Then all of a sudden out off the blue
The calls started coming through
It’s been awhile since we heard from you
I thought there was no care, but that was not true
And the spirits lifted and smile came to face
And joy was in and all over the place
Feeling loved and being a part
Lifts the spirits and makes merry the heart
Colossians 3:14, And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
1 Corinthians 13:4, Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is
not puffed up,
1 Corinthians 13:13, And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
I was going to walk three blocks to corner store
When all of a sudden a major cramp came in my leg
Ohh, how a simple short walk became impossible
It reminded me
Doing some everyday routine things can be taken for granted
But get sick, or unable to perform them,
And the simplest task can become a major task
I used to hear about athletes not playing due to a small bodily injury like a sore toe
And I’d think, how trivial
How could something that small prevent you from playing
But then I experienced a toe injury
And while the body part is small
The pain is huge
And it prevents you from doing a lot of things
I feel like thanking God more now
To be able to do simple things with ease
Simple things can be overlooked blessings
Sometimes we want or pray for major stuff or miracles
Not realizing the greatest blessings are already with us.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you
The above verse reminds me to thank God for every blessing and not to overlook the daily routine blessings He gives me everyday.
Psalms 75:1 (To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.) Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
How was that possible we kept asking?
As there was no logical explanation
It had to be because of divine attention
I mean year end and year out
Everything was kept flawlessly
Despite being in a location not known for safety
It had to be because of God’s angels watching
I’ve been in situations where I desperately needed a helping hand
And in a split second, some stranger came to assist me
Angels take on different forms
I say in the moment of need, some people are just like angels
I remember being reluctant to go somewhere
Because I had to go by myself
Then I took comfort in Psalm 91:11 1
That angels would be watching over me.
1 Psalms 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
