Seek and find scavenger hunts are fun. They can be a game for a local youth group or they can be an exercise in gratitude.
Find one thing you love to smell. There are so many fall options. The aromatic delight of fall goods baking in the oven or the scent of harvesting grain in the air, I love fall scents. (Maybe not the scent of rotting pumpkin guts... but hey... you take the good with the bad.)
Find something in nature to delight our soul. The fall leaves are spectacular. There are so many shades of red, gold and orange. Nature's majesty shines in the fall.
Find something you can give away to bless another person. In the giving there is a joy. Real joy.
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." -Jeremiah 29:13
And when we seek his face, we will find Him. And when we find Him, our hearts overflow. He has great plans for us, but we must seek and find Him with our whole hearts... keeping nothing back.
In the surrender, there is peace. In the peaceful moments, our heartaches lessen and hope is restored. We respond in gratitude and with thanksgiving.
Today, I am grateful we can seek and find grateful moments.
