(I don’t normally include my prayers of repentance, but today I am.)
The snowflakes outside my window praise you with all their intricacies and surprises. The icicles praise you as they hang on upside down and grow longer with each drip, drip, drip. The scampering squirrels and fluttering little birds praise you as they brave the cold outside and look in my direction every once in a while as though to say, “Come on out. The winter’s fine”. And, oh how the stars take on a special sparkle and effervescence in the wintertime when so much of the earth is asleep. It is as though they are saying, “Go ahead, world, and sleep. I’ll be here watching over you.” You are in everything because you made everything. How exciting it must have been for you those days of creation.
There are people in this world who seem to have no conscience. They had just as soon kill a person as to step on an ant. I am afraid of people like that and do not want to be around them. Even though they are overtly doing the work of Satan, I must cover them with prayer. I don’t do it. I don’t pray for my enemies or the enemies of the world. Grab them, God, and stab them in the heart so the hardness will leave and they can catch a glimpse of you.
Thank you for little babies. They remind me of my helplessness to make food grow and my dependence on you. Thank you for little toddlers who patter around discovering their world and giggling in delight. Thank you for adults who are mentally still like children. They remind me of innocence in an adult body and how I should be more like them. As I look around this world, I see blessings you give me in every corner of the universe. And, oh how they make me want to worship you.
I pen my thoughts to encourage souls. Will you help me share today’s book with someone? https://amzn.to/2VrTab9

DANIEL is storybook #10 in the series A CHILD’S BIBLE HEROES. Daniel got along with everyone, even enemy kings. He arrived in Babylon as a slave and rose to what we today would call prime minister, second only to the emperor. He did not lie, cheat, or steal to become that popular. He stood up for right when no one else did. People respected him for that. THINK & DO at the end of each chapter. To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this………. https://amzn.to/2VrTab9
