We all need the element of surprise. It is sadly minimized. It feeds the joyful delightful and wonder of the child in us. Stop. Slow down. Read that sentence again. It bares the weight of His Glory if we let it come down onto our shoulders. A little surprise can wake that sleeping child in you to: play with your children, authentic smile (yes i know you are faking some of those beauties), open teachable hearts to our Father.
Make little surprises happen: a piece of chocolate after a lunch out, a note slipped in your husband’s pocket, a ten dollar bill slipped into that starving college student’s wallet, a little happy to the grocery store clerk!
