Flowers for Elaine

One of the best parts of my day is waking up. 

No, it's not the coffee brewing.

At some point in starting my day, someone comes to mind. Frequently, he or she is a person I haven't seen or spoken with in a while. 

I immediately assume the reason the name came to mind is something important needs prayer so I say, "Well, God, let's talk about..." Sometimes He reminds me of details, sometimes He doesn't.

One morning God placed in my heart my friend Elaine. I hadn't seen her in a few years and didn't know the reason God brought her to mind. I thought about her sweet spirit and love for hosting Bible studies in her home. 

Her husband is the kind of guy who can do many things, carpentry, handy man, etc...but sometimes that lovey dove side any wife would like to see in her husband is hidden. The kind that winks, walks up and gives a smoochy kiss, leave a note, calls for no reason..I'm sure her hubby has it...he a guy.

So that morning I asked God to bless Elaine. Perhaps her hubby could do something special for her.

Later that day I messaged Elaine and told her God brought her to mind. I didn't know why so I had asked God to bless her with something from her husband.

Elaine responded with a smiley face. Apparently her hubby randomly (we know better, right?) came home for lunch. This was NOT the norm. AND he brought her a dozen roses. No reason. He just thought of it and did it.

I was so amazed at what God chose to do. 

God clearly brought Elaine to my mind that morning. Why, I am not sure. But what I do know is that God chose to bless Elaine. He also blessed Elaine's hubby. And He chose to bless me.

When God puts a name on your heart, we may never know why. When we choose to pray for the person, we could be calling the angels from heaven to rescue, comfort, bless, or who knows? 

Is there someone you should be praying for right now? Or maybe you're the one who is suppose to go bless someone.

Several of my friends have family members going through major illnesses. When I awake and just as I settle in for the night, I go through the list and pray for the families of these friends, the person who is ill and the caregivers. (The last group is in prayer as much as the patient.)

Sure feels good to do that, doesn't it. :)
