I saw God today in the face of my 18-month-old neighbor; he was using sand toys in the remnants of snow piles. I told him that he may have all that snow for his very own. Oh! His happy eyes and great big smile!

Now I just watch my "house" rise (dark to light) as I listen to the birds come to life, starting with the robbins. I like to spend a little quiet time of reflection, gratitude for the gift of life, and prayers for strength and whatever resources I need to make it through another day.

This morning the birds put on a beautiful concert for me as the sun rose. When it was over, I turned on my radio - just as the song "Sunshine" by John Denver began to play.

That song has a very special meaning to me. I can close my eyes and remember how beautiful sunshine looks on the water, and how it can warm painful shoulders. I can think back on my days having "fun in the sun" in my youth. I can think about the people I care about and wish them my very best.

It also brings me back to a single day when I was a teenager, with my best friend who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease at the age of 24 and died at the age of 26.

We were 16 years old. Both of us saved up our money and bought guitars. I thought I was pretty good because I learned all the chords quickly. I went to my friend's house, and she wanted to show me what she had learned. That song (Sunshine) came on the radio. She picked up her guitar and started picking and strumming to the song. I was amazed at her talent - it's just not something you learn in a book.

When the song was over, we hopped on our bikes and headed out to the woods to meet up with some friends. It was a beautiful day.

This morning made my heart smile. Didn't see Him, but I heard him.
((((((((KathyM)))))))))) Thank you for sharing this story. It truly touched my heart! God is in everything...and in this post....I felt His love and yours! Blessings to you sweetie!

I see God each and every morning when I go in to wake my Saffire up! She is always so happy as she shouts out "HI" when I walk in the room. Each morning we sing Good Morning To You to start the day. In the evening we rock and sing and finish the night off with a song that goes like this " YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL, THERES NO ONE JUST LIKE YOU.....CREATED BY THE MASTER, GOD MADE YOU TO BE YOU.......YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL, EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED...YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL AND I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE MINE.....YOU WERE HAND MADE BY GOD!!
I feel God every time I sing that song to Saffire. I picked up the CD for $1.00 at Dollarama.....best dollar I ever spent!!!!
Have a lovely day everyone!!

Isn't it nice to walk in and see God in the beautiful eyes of a grandchild. Most the time I just stand and look at them as they are sleeping. I too usually go into a room and sing "Good Morning To You" when they are here over night.
One thing that I love is on Sunday they jump up got of bed wanting to go to church with Granfather and me, their parents aren't that active in church, but always allow them to come. They really grow to fast.and one for Saffire

BMW~ I hope this thread never goes away. It makes me feel good. It's dreary looking out today, but I saw a Robin peckiing at the ground. She cocked her head sideways, as if listening. Was there a worm surfacing?

I feel God w/o even seeing his work sometimes. I just close my eyes and I can be anywhere and see anything I want to.

Every time I hear a whip-poor-will calling out in the night and early morning I think of God and how that whip-poor-will seemed to be sent to keep me company the months after my accident. And too music either mother natures music or sometimes certain songs and melodies I hear/think of God. And this is one of my favorite threads too so I hope it hangs around for a long time. Its so Nice to read about the many ways God works and also the many ways OF God’s work.
Many Blessings Daisymay and blessings to everyone who reads this thread
Peace

Reading it a 2nd time gave me shivers all over again, Abs!

I think God's work is right here on the boards of NeuroTalk too. Helping others get through a rough day,helping someone not feel so alone, or just letting people know we care whether it's through prayer or a kind word.

That's God working through us.

I saw God's handiwork while looking at my 18 yr. old this morning before he left for school.
1) He had a ruptured appendix a couple of weeks ago that he came through miraculously, and credits that miracle to a blessing given to him by a brother and a father when he first became sick with what we only thought was the flu.
2) He was up early this morning going to a religious class two hours before his regular school day started so he could learn more about our Savior and how he can become more like him!
3) He smiled and told me, his mom, to have a great day!

A mom and dad can't raise a miracle like this without God helping along the way!

This morning the Sun came out for a few minutes, then decided to hide behind some dark clouds and NO, it never did make a reappearance. BUt, I felt it was a lil message for me to "wake up" and don't take anything for granted.

Just like the sun peeking at me and then leaving ever so abruptly, things can change that fast.

God has a way of reminding me to be thankful in his subtle way. I feel so humble at times.
