His gifts to us

Did you get up today and rush out the door, get busy with laundry, chat on the phone or stop to open an email? If so, did you later stop to spend time with THE ONE who knows your every need? If you are anything like me, if I don't take the time to be still with my FATHER before the craziness of the day, I get distracted and get busy with the things of life. So it seems that later in the day, I hear HIM say, "...I miss my time with you, those moments together..."(I can't remember the name of the song, but it is playing in my head.)

My favorite place to enjoy my quiet time is on my front porch early in the morning where I can hear the birds singing and watch God's creation before me. Then the thing that I love the most is watching the hummingbirds as they feed around me. This morning God showed Himself to me in such an awesome way. I hadn't been seeing the hummingbirds lately and was missing them, so I prayed for God to bring them back. He does hear those "insignificant" prayers you know! As I looked up from reading Psalm 119:18 "Open your eyes that you may see...." there before my eyes was a beautiful hummingbird. Thank you God that there is no prayer that is insignificant to you. He hears our every word and desires to bless our hearts.

Take time to Be still and know that He is God and share with me those little blessings. I love to hear how He is blessing you.

I stopped by your blog after I saw your post from the China Heart Children Yahoo Group. Your post is beautiful. Humming Birds have a very special place in my heart because they were my mom's favorite. Congrats on starting the adoption process. We recently just started the process again for our second daughter.

God Bless,
