The tea prepared from my Advent calendar this morning was named Glitter and Gold. After steeping, little specks of gold floated in the tea. This was an unexpected treat!
Like tiny fragments of light, they remind me of how God shows up in unexpected places. I try to keep alert and mindful of seeing God in my everyday life, but it’s not easy to remember; especially when life is busy. Yet that’s when it seems to be most important.
By looking for and listening to God, I learn more about myself and who God wants me to be. This knowledge doesn’t come all at once. The more I remember to look and listen, the easier it becomes. Eventually, prayer becomes a continuous stream of light.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
