Happy tears...

holy experience

We gathered around the Thanksgivng table, my husband, me, our girls, our sons-in law, our grandbabies, my 84 year old mama, a young married couple from the church.  There was enough food to feed twice as many abundance.  We are abundantly, overwhelmingly, undeservedly, lavishly, blessed by God.  A few hours later, youngest baby grandaughter can be heard squealing and making happy sounds as she watches her cousins play.  I look up, and my daughter is weeping happy tears of gratitude and happiness, as she hears her baby girl so long waited for, prayed for, now here.  Today, as I think about miraculous answers to prayer, like my precious grandaughter, along with unexpected blessings given from God's hand, just because...I am grateful and I could shed a few happy tears as well.

Thank you God for...
