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!"
