Bring a Bigger Basket

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…”~Ephesians 3:20

I thought today’s daily bread from the garden would only be beans. This is what I harvested instead.

Isn’t that just like our Heavenly Father? Exceeding our expectations at every turn.

But just as I had to bend and twist around the climbing vines with all their outstretched tendrils to gather the cucumbers, sometimes it takes a little effort on our part to scoop up the blessings God has in store for us each day. Especially when all we can see at first glance are the spiky rebuttals and buzzing cynics.

Look for the blessings today. I know I’ll be bringing out a bigger basket tomorrow.
