Little Moments

The sun rising as I unlocked the cafeteria doors for the kids that come early. With going to work as early as I do, seeing the sun rise is a favorite part of my day.

A case of fresh oranges waiting to be cut for breakfast. As I was cutting these oranges, the sweet smell of citrus sprayed into the air. I couldn't help but think about how bright and pleasing to the eye they were as I cut them. I thought about how in the season of Winter, the orange stands out. It promotes healing when so many are fighting off being sick. I thought about the Persimmons, Lemons and Pomegranate's too. How good is God? He has thought of everything.

As I made Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches, I scooped the jelly out of the jar and plopped down a heart.

This morning a double rainbow outside the cafeteria's kitchen door reminded me of God's promise.

As the milk man finished with his delivery, he asked me, "Well Angela, is it a good day so far?" I smiled and said, "It is just getting started!"


  1. Heartwarming and a good way to start my day too.. Thanks :)

  2. Oranges are one of my FAV fruit! Those and Blackberries! O! rainbows!! I always get excited when I see rainbows!!!

  3. That is an awesome way to start the day! I am driving when you are starting but I loved seeing the rainbow as well

    peace, love and hugs

  4. What a great day. I am prone to respond to the question "How's everything?" with "Fantastic and getting better!!"

    I know that's how it is with you and your family.

    Have a Happy Holiday.
