As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I was thinking about the word AWARE. Yesterday, I sat on my porch for a little bit and threw Francis his ball. (Francis is my dog). I started looking around and I became AWARE of so many things. I noticed that the trees had lost their leaves, there were a lot of tangerines on my neighbors’ tree, and, I must Confess, they are very sweet. I watched neighbors walk by, waving or stopping to say hello, others in too much of a hurry as they rushed down the street.
Awareness it’s something I need to practice more often. Sometimes I can be in such a hurry, or have too much on my mind, that I do not see that I’m not aware of all of God’s miracles happening right before me. A hummingbird just came, and I sat so still it just stayed right in front of me. I think of all the times I missed seeing God ‘s presence because I was in such a hurry.
So today, I am going to practice AWARENESS. Awareness in the simple things, the sound of the birds, the colors in the sunset, cloud formations, and all the other gifts that God has in store for me today! Join me on AWARENESS DAY!
Have a blessed day! ( I have to go throw the ball again!)
