Sun Kissed~ Something To Think About

~ Grace Gift ~
Sun-Kissed Yellow
 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart 
and with all your soul 
and with all your mind 
and with all your strength. 
~ Mark 12:30
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.

~ Psalm 34:17
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." ~ II Cor. 9.1
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." ~ James 1.17
When it's cool and sunny and the birds are singing and the flowers - wild - are blooming and all is well with me and mine, it's easy to be agreeable and gratitude spilling.

The real test - the challenge for me - is this. When it's hot and humid, and the cat throws up on the carpet, and I drop the yogurt on the just-mopped kitchen floor and all is not well with me and mine. Does gratitude spill then?

Have I truly cultivated an eye for life's mercies? Will I still count my blessings - name them, list them, play them on the keyboards, speak about them, paint them - on difficult, less-than-stellar, horrible, no-good days?
 What about you? What are you savoring these days? And how are you counting His gifts?
