This morning I woke up wondering what to write about today. Some nights I go to bed knowing what I will write about the next morning. Sometimes I write a series so the next blog is a given. But I never really worry about what I’m going to write because usually the Lord gives me the topic at some point.
This morning I woke up still not sure what I was going to write about and when I took our little dog out, there it was!! Right there in the sky. It was there yesterday morning, too but so bright and clear this morning. It was a wink and a smile.
As soon as I opened the patio door shades, I said “well good morning, Lord” and it was as if He said “good morning, Deanna” and smiled at me. I said, “I was wondering what to write about” and then it was as if He winked at me.
I’ve been watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel this week (Christmas in July) and on a few of them there is a Santa Claus who has that magical smile, twinkle in his eye and a little wink to let the child, or even the adult know, that he’s got this thing covered….that there is a little extra special love and Santa magic going on.
That’s how I felt when I saw the moon crest and the bright star next to it. God was giving a wink and a smile that He’s got today covered and this whole week as I go to Proverbs 31 She Speaks writer and speaker conference. I cannot wait to see what He has in store for me this week. It’s going to be fun to spend time with new and old friends and hear some great speakers and bring back lots of ideas.
I want you to look around today and see God’s wink to you. He’s got you covered in your worries, your fears, your good times and your bad. He smiles down on you when you show love to your neighbor and kindness to a stranger. Sometimes He’s right there just waiting to be noticed in the smallest of things…. like a wink and a smile. Pay attention so you don’t miss Him.
