30 Days of Gratitude: Day Thirty

I am grateful for Tender Mercies.

Much of what I have already described in the past 30 days can easily fall into the category of "tender mercies" -- someone calling you right when you need a friend, enjoying the beauty of the earth, getting a feeling or prompting to do something, hearing your favorite song at just the right time, or someone saying something you just might need to hear at that very moment.

But in addition to all of that, I feel tender mercies include the things we don't know about.  How many times are we seconds away from a car accident, or an illness that we weren't even aware of?  Or maybe an expense was delayed until a more expedient time for you to deal with it...  Things in which the Lord steps in and handles for our benefit? I am certain that there are probably lots of those divine interventions on my behalf.  And for those -- I am grateful.

I love those moments when you realize how merciful the Lord truly is.
