. . . only come when I am actually paying attention. Otherwise, I miss the blessing and the opportunity to give thanks.
Today's example? I went to the grocery store prepared to spend 1.89/lb for 80% lean ground beef. Not a super great price, but tolerable, and we'd gone without long enough. While leaning over the meat I found a marked-down package of 85% lean ground beef for just 1.49/lb. "Thank you Lord!" escaped my lips without me realizing I was thinking it.
A year ago I would have missed it, simply because I bought ground beef whenever I wanted it regardless of price.
I'll have to pay attention more often so that my Lord may be more greatly praised.
