Indian summer:

A remembering of summer after a cold fall. What an amazing thing!

If you were looking for a legitimate season 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.
