Inspirational coffee creamer
And in this the Lord showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut, lying in the palm of my hand. . .In this little thing I saw three properties. The first is that God made it, the second is that God loves it, the third is that God preserves it.While the properties do not apply to the creamer, they do apply to all creation, including you and me. God made, loves, and preserves all creation and God made, loves and preserves you and me.
It is probably an occupational hazard that a coffee creamer reminds me of a 14-15th century English mystic, but I don't think that is all that is going on here. I find that the most ordinary things can remind us of God and I am convinced that the Holy Spirit is in on that inspiration. No matter how insignificant it may seem, it is pretty cool that a coffee creamer can remind you of God's love.
Has anything unlikely reminded you of God lately? Be on the lookout. It happens all the time if you are open to it.
