Answered prayers

God truly has a sense of humor.  Over the last few days, I've been praying to be blessed so that I may bless others, "let my blessings overflow."

This morning, the coffee pot overflowed.  As I was cleaning that up, I managed to overflow my coffee cup as well.  Most mornings this would have frustrated me, and set my day up for a bad day.  Then I remembered what I had been praying.  Blessings were overflowing all right.  As I smiled at God's sense of humor, I opened the microwave to discover my egg dish managed to overflow onto the turn plate.  Oh my...now I am shaking my head.  After all of this, I have no choice but to smile.

What a great reason to brush this blog off, and get it moving again!  Our church is going through a study called "Animate Practices."  One of the first activities was to list how you've seen, heard or experienced God.

My list:
Today I saw God :

-in the colors of the leaves.
-in the fresh snow on Mt. Hood, making it look bigger than before
-in the weak smile of a thankful mom, as I helped distract her toddlers, so she could focus on what was important at the moment.

Feel free to share your "sightings!"

Sadly, I have forgotten to note my God sightings. It has been over a year since I posted any!

Recently, I have seen or heard God...
-in the giggle of a 9 month old.
-the relief of hearing a friend, visiting VA, was not harmed by any storm/tornado.
-a friend's relief to hear her son is back from deployment, and will be relocating from the east coast to WA.
-tears of relief as a burden is lifted from someone's shoulders.
-(not to forget...)He is Risen!

week ending March 7, 2010

Here is where I have seen or heard God this week. Please feel free to leave your own God Sightings either via Facebook or by adding to the comments on my blog!

-An elder reflecting on 35 years of marriage, even though he has passed on.
-A friend sacrificing their own joy so as not to "mess up" the life of their child.
-The joy of seeing someone reach for, and achieve their goal(s).
-Happy Dances!
-Regrowth and rebirth of Spring! I know I've been saying this for a couple of weeks now, but it still amazes me how God created all things to become new again. This time of year just shows it more than others.

For Lent, I am choosing to dust off this blog. Instead of "giving up" something for Lent, I am going back to things that have been forgotten about. After the sermon and lessons on spending time in the wilderness, it is time to start listing where I've seen God again.

God Sightings
-Daffodils! The first flower to bloom in the Spring is blooming!!
-The beauty of being able to see not only Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helen, but also Mt. Adams!
-The sparkle in a child's eye when they get to do something they enjoy.
-A group of women having lunch together, and enjoying each others' company.
-A warm embrace from a loved one.

Since I have missed a couple of weeks, I have some catch up to do:
God has been seen/felt/heard
-(as bizarre as it may sound) my mechanic telling me he wouldn't trust my car in the mountains.
-The car accident, last Weds. (I was hit from behind), no one was seriously injured. Note to God: ok I get the message, this car is not to leave the state of Nebraska!
-Mentors who can give my life's challenges a whole different perspective.
-a potential buyer for my car, so I don't have to scrap it.
-2009 Confirmation class.
-a friend being moved by a testimony to help a woman's mission organization.
