A remembering of summer after a cold fall. What an amazing thing!
If you were looking for a legitimate season change..it could be disappointing. If you were hoping for pumpkins and cocoa...maybe not today. But what about just goin with whatever is dished out. Its like rolling up to a drive thru and saying "surprise me!"
Just like when God surprises us with a blessing that was unexpected. Just like when a friend calls after a long absence. Just like when your husband brings home a surprise treat or coffee.
God surprises us with a cool sense of complete and utter peace. It envelops us and shows us that we are unexpectedly valued and adored. It is a warm wind on a cool day..a soft mist on a warm day..a double rainbow...a baby's giggle.
He sees our interest and care and grins with appreciation. He is startled by our touch..feeling a quick whisper of our prayer in His ear. Knowing our time with Him is treasured, He nods His head saying "she loves me, she knows me." I am His favorite surprise.
