A LITTLE BLESSING

Yesterday the CD player in my car went haywire. My daughter had put in one of her CD's and when she tried to remove it...the player read"CD ERROR & switched over to the radio. We tried other CD slots & the same thing happened. Over and over. No success. No matter what we tried.
I was not happy. First of all, it looked like several of my favorite CD's were now trapped. Secondly, I often listen to a CD in the car as a time of worship and praise to my Lord. Thirdly, I didn't have any extra cash, so....getting the CD player working would be considered a luxury and not a need, therefore...off my list of things to spend money on. I decided I would just have to get over it.
This morning during my prayer time, my focus was on some others...one friend was in labor, another friend was on an important trip, still another who is going through a difficult time. Almost as an afterthought I mentioned the CD player to God. I spent as much time as a blink of the eye on that.
When I got into the car to go to work, I thought "Well, I will give it another try and see what happens." As soon as I hit the CD button, out popped my daughter's CD. I tried the other CD slots and all my CD's and play functions were normal!!!
With all the wonderful blessings that God has provided today...the really important things:
-My friends have a beautiful son,
-My other friend's important trip is going very well,
-My still another friend is finding comfort,
-My daughter who is always a blessing, even when she thinks I am mad at her,
-And a thousand other things and people that fill my life...
God reached down and added just a tiny, but much appreciated addition to my blessing box.

God is so good, He knows what we need when we need it, I just sometimes wish my prayers were answered in my time, but I must remember I don't know the whole picture and His plan is much better than mine.

I so totally agree. We must be careful not to overlook the small things. They are so precious and priceless to us! I believe He always wants to bless us with the very best and even the smallest of things are the very best. It helps us remember who we are in the big scheme of things. Thanks for sharing this!

I always say the small things can make you infinitely happy or drive you infinitely insane!

Dang cause I need some stress relief. Oddly I find cleaning somewhat of an outlet. It is often a SOURCE of stress but lately cleaning my room has relieved some stress. Odd? Yes. And I better not hear you telling anyone my secret. LOL. Kids are supposed to hate cleaning.
