I will bless them and the places surrounding
my hill. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.
Ezekiel 34:26 (NIV)
The LORD God here talks about blessing his people. He
tells Ezekiel He will look favorably on those who love Him. He further tells
the prophet that He will bless those who follow Him. He says He will shower
them with blessings as they need them.
God still gives us showers of blessings, even during this
pandemic. Though we might not like the idea of staying in away from crowds, it
has helped keep us safe. When we see people, we have not seen for a lengthy time,
we rejoice and are happy to see them.
A phone call from a friend is a blessing. It tells us
that someone cares about us.
Here are some of the blessings I received just last week:
I sent emails to three of my writing/blogging friends and
asked for their prayers. Each of them replied with compassionate thoughts that
helped me deal with a tender area I feel the need to deal with.
My husband surprised me with a bag of my favorite
candy-White Chocolate Truffles.
I felt blessed when I could make our appointments for our
booster shots easily. (Earlier, we had a difficult time when one place
cancelled our appointments. The place was closed when we arrived.)
I felt blessed when a Facebook friend messaged me and
asked how I was doing. As I later listed the things I had done that day, I
realized I had been very blessed.
Here is a hymn that came to mind when I was preparing
