The other day I wasn’t feeling 100% (don’t worry – not COVID!) and was having a lie down when the doorbell rang. I left it at first as I wasn’t expecting anyone, but the visitor persevered and rang again. I relented and went to the door – what a lovely surprise! It was our daughter Nicci with our little granddaughter Clementine here for a surprise visit.
I was so pleased to see them and really enjoyed the unexpected sight of those two happy faces and the chance to spend time with them. What was shaping up to be a pretty ordinary day turned out to be a pretty great one.
In thinking about it later, it made me realise that we never know what’s just around the corner – and often it is something wonderful. So, if you are having a less than lovely day, remember that God is with you and that there will be better times ahead.
Heavenly Father, thank you for keeping your arms around us and allowing us to feel safe and secure in the knowledge of your love. Amen
