Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

Many mercies December 31, 2008

Filed under: Keeping inspired — Andie @ 2:39 pm

Today, I’ve been running around with my children in -2 degree weather to try and stock up on groceries, etc. I didn’t want to do the start of the month January shopping on New Year’s Day (and didn’t know what would be open) so we went today. Our fridge was looking quite empty. While we were out,   we had a couple random stops involving Trader Joe’s major traffic jams (there’s only one in the area… with a TINY parking lot), parking 2 blocks down and huffing it with the double stroller, a car stuffed so full of food from ALDI and wrapping paper from Target that I was running out of space, and almost breaking off my key in the truck of my car at the end of the last stop. 

But, when my key started the car after I was afraid I’d broken it…. I was SO SO THANKFUL for God’s many many mercies to us today. It just made me think how amazed I was that we made it through all that shopping with no major meltdowns (mercy), no wrecks (mercy), enough money to buy food (mercy), a diaper to remedy Byron’s wet pants (mercy), a car (mercy), a stroller (mercy), health to walk two blocks (mercy) and so many more that I don’t even know because only the Lord knows them. 

May you enjoy the many mercies in your life today, too.
