October 27

As I took a walk the other day, signs of fall were apparent. As the first cool breeze arrived, leaves floated softly from trees. The falling leaves reminded me of the blessings we receive from God.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for all the blessings you provide. Like the floating leaves, may our blessings be bountiful and noticed. Help us see blessings in the people we meet each day and the situations we encounter. Provide the wisdom to recognize each blessing, both the obvious, and not so obvious. Encourage us to share with others how we, as well as they, have been blessed. May we discern the blessings in our lives are the result of your hand.
There, in the presence of the Lord your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the Lord your God has blessed you.
Deuteronomy 12:7 New International Version (NIV)
