Gratefulness when things are not evident.

As I listened to the birds tweet last night, I paused my thoughts to hear them better. Yet, each time I stopped my thoughts there was a long pause in the chirping until my thoughts had once again started up. This back and forth went on for several times. Thoughts and birds singing. Silence and silence.

Then I heard within me a still small voice that said:

Can you thank me and be grateful even when it is in between…when the birds are quiet? Can you thank me for their song even when you do not hear it at the moment?


Suddenly my next thought was a little more profound…Could I be grateful for God’s presence and His touch on my life even when I didn’t sense it (in the in between times)?

Do I? Not always. But could I work at it now? Yes.

Until Next Time~
All The Best,
