Here I sit on a beautiful night. The moon is full and shining bright, the crickets are singing, all else is quiet. Here I am, as awake as could be. But what a gorgeous night to have sleep evading me! I’ll use this time to type out a few thoughts I’ve been pondering. Yes, I am the type of person that muses and thinks and wonders and then ponders some more!

First and foremost in my mind is an open question. Can you see color in the moonlight? Sometimes it seems like I can and other times I can’t. Any thoughts? 🙂

Blessings in disguise have been a frequent matter of pondering lately. So many have happened to me recently. So many things that seem just awful when they happen so often times in the future turn out so well. How many times have I said, “Well, I guess I was better off”, “I’m so glad now that that happened!” “Am I ever glad that God is in control of my life instead of me!” 🙂 And so on and so forth.

Think of all the things that have seemed to not turn out so well, even looking back. But perhaps they were a blessing in disguise and I haven’t seen it yet; maybe I never will. But I know I can have confidence in Christ that all things work to His glory. When we wonder why things are happening a certain way, in work situations, in a relationship or lack there of with the opposite sex (or any relationship for that matter), why we were late for this or that or who knows what! The worn out saying “Count your blessings” remains so true. Thank God for all things, for blessings in disguise are present and truly are gifts!img_0062.jpg
