Has this ever happened to anyone?
You're eating something, and it's an okay day, and what you're eating is something you like, maybe you eat it every day, but it's nothing spectacular. Then, all of a sudden, you take a bite, and it hits you--Oh, my gosh, is this DELICIOUS! Next and subsequent bites, however, are the same as the others.
Or maybe things are a bit hassled, then they've calmed down, and you're not thinking of anything in particular. You either get a thought about something, or you see/hear/smell something, and it hits you--Oh, my gosh, that is BEAUTIFUL/SO TRUE/WONDERFUL!
I think God does that to gently nudge us out of complacency, and give us a much-needed bit of "attitude of gratitude."
The reason I ask is that I've been getting this quite a bit lately.
