I love quilts and really like the name of this quilt. I wish I was gifted in this way, but at least I have the one granny and mama made. It’s my most cherished possession.

The word perfect often brings a note of doubt to mind, but this day came very close to being perfect in my humble opinion. Here’s my recipe for a perfect day.

So often we take the weather for granted when it is this nice. I can honestly say after the long winter months, I do not under appreciate near perfection anymore. I don’t believe I’ll ever take that big bright ball in the sky called the SUN for granted again! The first ingredient in this recipe is serendipity. Begin the day grateful for blessings, you will surely find many wonderful things to be thankful for.

When was the last time you looked at the good and thanked God for it? You can admire and enjoy the good around you, but until you take a moment to bow before the Creator and voice your thanks, it’s just admiration and enjoyment. The second ingredient in this recipe is thanksgiving.

Once you have thanked God for the good around you, is there someone you can remind to do the same? Maybe there is someone in your life who is looking down or so involved in other things that they have not noticed the good around them. How great would it be if you could take a moment to point out the good when they don’t see it before them. The third ingredient in this recipe is sharing.

Once you have mixed the serendipity, thanksgiving and sharing in a large bowl, bake it in the warmth of God’s love all day long. Keep a big smile on your face and your batch of near perfect will bake up nicely. If you make quilts, maybe you’d like to make them a Serendipity quilt! That would remind them to invite God’s goodness into their lives. You know when we are thankful and have a serendipitous attitude about life, it makes it easier to face the more unpleasant things that happen in life.

My little recipe costs nothing to make, it is calorie-free and it won’t raise your blood glucose, blood pressure or cholesterol at all. ❤
