OMG. . . Sweet Moments

Blueberry Pancakes and The Carpenters


Those times when the presence is just there.  And you know it. 

There is no mistaking what this moment is.

 

OMG. . .In So Many Ways. . .Blueberry Pancakes & The Carpenters.

 

A text from a salesperson turned friend.  A picture of blueberry pancakes.  Brings him joy.  Him wishing me a day of joy.  This salesperson turned friend who could be my son.  Is from Vietnam.  Remembers the war.  Our war.  My college war.  And he wishes me a joyous day.

 

OMG. . .In So Many Ways. . .Blueberry pancake wishes. . . Salesperson turned friend. . .from Vietnam.. .our lives worlds apart. . .yet not really.

 

The presence was there.

 

Driving home from errands.  The Carpenters on the  radio.  “We’ve Only Just Begun”  1970.  The song.  The summer of weddings.  My wedding.  Memories flood back.  A lifetime of them.  And gratitude for all the memories.  Good and Bad.  And the gift of our twilight years in this beautiful place. 




 

OMG. . ..  My husband coming out to sit in the car.   Listening to The Carpenters.   His hand on mine.  In silence.  Except for “We’ve Only Just Begun” 

 

Two random – unremarkable events.  Felt in all my being.  Reminding me.  Of everything I write about.   Of joy.  Of sweet moments.  The presence.

 

Wishing you a blueberry pancake – sweet moments - joyous day.

Memories are wonderful to think about. My husband died a few years ago after being married 60 years. Often times things that I hear or do remind me of special times we spent together💜

Your OMG reminded me of something I realized  in Idyllwild last weekend, while walking, I remembered a time when being out in nature felt like being in a prayer. And realized I could go there if I chose, it needn't be a moment sprung on me from God. We can choose to be immersed in God, (not wanting to make it sound automatic, but the possibility is there). 

Songs or pancakes or nature, God's flexible.

Yes God is flexible - I guess He needs to be if He's going to get through to us, right?
