{Day 14}: A Little Piece of Heaven

So, how are you doing on your 25 Days of Fitness journey now that we are over half-way finished?

Have you been working out? Are you watching what you eat? Are you preparing your heart for the arrival of our savior? Or have you been distracted by the hustle and bustle of the season?

Anybody still out there? Let me know how you are doing!

Spiritual Fitness from One Incredible Moment:

Have you ever spent days, weeks, months even, searching for the perfect gift for that special someone?

Maybe it was for your significant other, to show them how much you care?

Or for that child who only wanted one thing from Santa and of course every store is sold out of that one thing?

Maybe you spent hours on a handmade gift for a friend or loved one?

Why do you do it?

You do it so the eyes will pop. You do it so the heart will stop. You do it so the jaw will drop. You do it to hear those words of disbelief, "You did this for me?"

That's why you do it. And that's why God did it. Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leaves you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing and listen as heaven whispers, "Do you like it? I did it just for you."

My parents came to visit us at the end of May last year to join us for the boys' double birthday celebration. We happened to be at the park by our house, which Little A likes to call "our park" on my dad's birthday when out of nowhere the sky opened up and a breath-taking rainbow of colors appeared.

Within seconds it was gone. It was the strangest thing. And unlike any rainbow we had every seen before, almost like waves of color splashing across the sky.

My dad joked that it was God's birthday card to him! And of course we laughed and agreed and posted it on facebook {because nothing is official until it is on facebook}. ;)

But seriously, there is no doubt in my mind that God sent a little gift to us that day. For some reason, he wanted us to know that he was there with us on that special day and that he loved us.

Find such love hard to believe? That's okay. Just because we can't imagine God's giving us sunsets, don't think God doesn't do it. God's thoughts are higher than ours. God's ways are greater than ours.

And sometimes, out of his great wisdom, our Father in heaven gives us a piece of heaven just to show he cares.
