Song Story:   Written during a retreat time overlooking a gorgeous river, after I'd
played music for a  worship time, and was considering with amazement the
"coincidences" which brought this wonderful job to be mine -- including some people
breaking the huge picture window in our home. (The glass company owner told
me about the position that I never would have heard of otherwise!)

3 SPECIFIC inspirations for this song:
1.  My husband was "a blind date" early in college. On the day I met him, I had NO idea
that we'd be so happily married 3 decades later. God guided me to
think on this, under the trees, in the warm breeze.......

2. I've "always believed in God" (just looking at Nature), but
thought I was a Christian because of it. One night someone took me to a
Billy Graham revival-- and I found the truth of James 2:19. But on that
afternoon, I had NO idea that my life would change forever - with JOY - in hours.
God guided me to
think on this, under the trees, in the warm breeze.......

3. Several churches I've attended have fervent prayer times that last 20+ minutes.
Among their prayers are "Thank you LORD for that accident You kept us from,
the sickness You stopped, the blessings You brought that we did not see."
A cool prayer.... and on this day,  God guided me to
think on this, under the trees, in the warm breeze.......
AND  to turn it into this song.

Dedicated to our Amazing God who blesses us SO far beyond our
dreams and even what we notice as His gifts-- Ephesians 3:20-21. 16 July 2014

Deuteronomy 28: 1-2  ( repeated in Leviticus. 26:1–13; and Deut. 7:12–24 )
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:

Leviticus. 26:1–13
‘You shall not make idols for yourselves;  ​neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it;
for I am the LORD your God. You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary:
I am the LORD.

If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them,

then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

Ephesians 3: 1
Spiritual Blessings
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.fn He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
