Finding God in Quiet Moments
The weather the past few days has been so beautiful - a perfect spring. The flowers are blooming and the boys and I have been able to get out and enjoy the sunshine. This afternoon, they were playing happily in the backyard, using our bulkhead as a slide and burying their "Weeble" toys in the sand. Meanwhile, I was taking great delight in a few unoccupied moments to sit on my deck and do some reading while listening to Mozart on my CD player. It was all so wonderful - and God was there. We sometimes search for God only in the big moments of life, and obviously God is there as well. Sometimes, however, the sweetest places to find God are in the simple moments of daily life when you look around, take a breath, and say "this is the good stuff." Thank you, God, for being there in quiet moments.
