Did you know?

Today I was listening to the radio and ‘Mary did you know?’ came on the radio. And a little while later, The Stand. I had decided this morning that I was going to start counting my blessings because I have tons even though yesterday I did not do a good job of acting thankful.

So I just started counting and counting and counting, and I am quite sure I was over 100 before 8AM.

Thinking about ‘Mary did you know?’ Can you imagine carrying the Son of God in your womb? Takes ‘Oh my word’ to a whole new level. But then I began to think about how the things we do, the impacts we make, how they really do matter to God. How we are so blessed and should be honored to bring Him glory.

I heard God whisper so sweetly…

Margie – did you know?

That when you smile at them, they see Me?
That when you cook for someone, you’re feeding those who belong to Me?
That when you encourage someone, you’re reminding them that they are loved?

And Margie?

Did you know that YOU are loved by Me?
