Am I Kind to God?

"Am I as spontaneously kind to God as I used to be,
or am I only expecting God to be kind to me?

Does everything in my life fill His heart with gladness,
or do I constantly complain because things
don’t seem to be going my way?"

The Love of God

I love how God uses little things to show
us more of Him.

This morning:

Got up late
Car windows iced up.
Late for an appointment.
Could not find keys.

My sweet fella says,
"They're in the car".
I looked in question at why he would say that.
How would he know they were in the car?
(you have to know here that I have left
my keys in the car overnight before.)
He said he knew they were in the car
because he was warming up the car for me.

That small thing made me feel so loved and cared for!

As I drove off tears began to fall.
And I thought how much God loves us and how
He shows us His love every day, in so many ways.
How He takes care of us, and sends
His angels to surround and protect us.
How he sends friends when we need help,
and a shoulder to cry on when we need it.

Lord, help me to see the small things you
do every day to show your love for me.
Fill my cup so that I might share the love you give me, with others.

Blessings to you all
