Hidden Treasures

"In Him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." 
(Colossians 2:3)

"Approach each day with a desire to find Me. Before you get out of  bed, I have already been working to prepare the path that will get you through this day. There are hidden treasures strategically placed along the way. Some of the treasures are trials, designed to shake you free form earth-shackles. Others are blessings that reveal My Presence: sunshine, flowers, birds, friendships, answered prayer. Search for deep treasure as you go through this day. You will find Me all along the way." (Jesus Calling)

Thankful for the treasures found in each day, during the past week ...

~ living, active Words, every day - food for my soul

~ beautiful potted flowers on our patio table

~ a 25-minute walk through our small town

~ eating lunch out by our patio table with my husband

~ calendar in hand, discussing summer plans with husband 

~ a wonderful four-day trip over Memorial Day weekend, traveling to Dallas with two daughters and four grandkids, to spend time with another daughter, a son-in-law, and four more grandkids

~ so thankful for safety, and for a great time traveling with two two-year olds, a three year-old, an eight year-old, and two daughters - for the 13 hour drive to Texas ~ the kids were so good!

~ eight cousins together for the weekend (8 of our 9 grandkids!) - here are the youngest 6 at a wildlife refuge that we went to on Saturday morning

~ time to cool off on a hot day at a pool in their subdivision

~ good talks late at night, and throughout the day ... and time to celebrate our son-in-law's birthday while there

~ two of the sweetest little girls, all dressed up for church

~ a Sunday afternoon visit to LegoLand in Dallas with two very excited boys

~ thanking God for these past four days spent with family, for good communication times, for fun with the grandkids, and for safety traveling the 12 hours home yesterday

~ and thankful for my wonderful husband waiting at home for me ... 

~ grateful to God for the hidden treasures He has for us each day, evidences of His love and presence
