Everyday Unwrapped

Emily over at chatting at the sky is hosting a party today. It is called Everyday Unwrapped - noticing the little things that happen everyday. Noticing...

your son walking out of your bathroom wearing your shoes.
noticing... the future rock stars might be in your four year old class.

noticing bright pink lipstick created by frosting...

noticing... the way a two year old loves his blankie...

noticing... the way your son's eyes stare at the world trying to take it all in.

Lord, do you notice?

1 Praise the LORD. [a]
Praise, O servants of the LORD,
praise the name of the LORD.

2 Let the name of the LORD be praised,
both now and forevermore.

3 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the LORD is to be praised.

4 The LORD is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.

5 Who is like the LORD our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,

6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of their people.

9 He settles the barren woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the LORD.

You have to stoop, but Lord you do! You do look... you notice all things!

Great post! I just love how you brought that verse into it. He certainly does notice all these small, seemingly insignificant moments. Thank you for reminding us of this! And your son is a doll. He reminds me of my own...wearing mommy's shoes and loving his blankie. So sweet.
