Blessed. I am really blessed to have some amazing people in my life. One of these people is my cousin Candice!! She is AWESOME with a large side of goofy!!
(This us back in 2007 at my sister’s wedding. As you can see by the photo we know how to tear down a dance floor!)
Candice is one of those people that I just love being around. Being with her is never dull and is always encouraging. We live in different states so we don’t get to see each other much…BUT…Praise the Lord we live in such a hip time with our swanky technology. Today we took hold of the techy-world and communicated in all kinds of swanky ways. This is was my personal fav…
If you don’t have heytell…get it!!
Today, I am thankful to have people, like Candice, in my life. Another person I am thankful for is my friend Robin. I found this in my phone today, and it brought a huge smile to my face. It’s the little things that make my day!
I am thankful for the Word
I’ve said before that I am pushing out the negative in my life. One of the ways I am doing that is by putting in more and more of the Word. If you need more joy, more peace, more rest put more of this book in your life. The more goodness I put in the more goodness comes out. I couldn’t make it without this book.
Well, those are a few of the blessing both big & small that have made today and good day!
Yesterday was Monday and I did NOT have to work. I didn’t work so I could spend some time with my friends and go to my very first GUSTER concert!! It was more than awesome! I loved every minute of the show!!
It is a blessing to have great friends, good music and perfect weather. It is an even better blessing when you can enjoy it all at once!!!
Today, I am thankful for mornings with this one…
This dog…Rory…is the greatest dog in the world!! She really does make every day better. She is great company to have around…all day!!
Those are what I am seeing as blessings in my life today. I am looking past the negative and holding onto the blessings of today. I’m looking past the blessings and seeing the one who gives them all. It is a beautiful sight.
I love finding a song that speaks right to my heart. You know the ones, it seems like someone looked into your heart and pulled the lyrics right out. I‘ve found that in a song called “Give Me Faith” by Elevation Church. I am thankful for this song today.
I need you to soften my heart
to break me apart
I need you to open my eyes
to see that you’re shaping my life
All I am
Give me faith to trust what you say
that you’re good and your love is great
I’m broken inside, I give you my life
I need you to soften my heart
to break me apart
I need you to pierce through the dark
and cleanse every part of me
I may be weak
Your spirit strong in me
My flesh may fail
My God you never will
Today, I need a little more faith. I don’t need faith to move mountains. I don’t need faith for a Parting-The-Red-Sea-Type-Of-Miracle. Today, I need the kind of faith that this song talks about. I need faith to trust what God says. I need faith to trust that he is good, and that he does have a great, personal, love for me. I need faith to believe that he has not forgotten me, that he has not forsaken me. I need faith to believe he has good works prepared for me to do that are more than just supporting from the sidelines. I need faith that produces joy. I need faith that produces rest. I need faith to trust that where I’m at today is not where I will always be. I need faith to believe that my life is not about my happiness and comfort. I need faith to believe that my life is for the fame and glory of Love.
I may be weak, I may fail, I may lack faith but my God you never will.
He is good & his love is great!!
Today has been long and full of work, but there has been some goodness in my life today. I’m pushing the negative away, and pulling close the good that is present in my life today.
I started a new journal today! I LOVE starting new journals. I am praying for it to be a journal full of records of God being mighty in my life. I am praying that it can be a record of blessings. Here is to new beginnings…
p.s. this journal was given to me from AFB all the way from Cambodia. It was made by a girl rescued out of sex trafficking with Rapha House (http://www.raphahouse.org/).
OOOO big news!! TODAY is my Friday!! I think we can all find a little JOY in knowing that we are about to enter into the bliss that is the weekend!
Best for last.
I am so thankful for where I live & who I live with!
I absolutely, every day, always LOVE going home x infinity!!!
Some days we all need a little more positivity. There are even times we when we need it moment-by-moment. That moment-by-moment time can last for an hour, an afternoon or a whole season in our lives. Regardless, we all need to be more positive from time to time. We all need a little more goodness 😉 It can be hard to see the beauty of what is right in front of us when we are swapped with the negative. This is what I have run into lately so I am taking action!! Today!
I’m going to push the negative away. I’m going to stop believing the lies that where I am in life is where I will always be. I’m going to feed myself truth. I’m going to feed myself the truth that there is beauty in the happenings of my everyday life. I’m going to see the positive, the goodness. I’m going to feed myself the truth that the blessing are still around, even when I feel God has forgotten me. I’m going to see the blessings. I’m going to feed myself more and more of the Word. I’m going to see it imprinted on my heart. I’m going to feed myself the truth that I’m created to live a life of abundance in the ravishing love of Love. I’m going to see this love and pour it out unlimitedly on those I encounter.
I’m going to make in effort to record the blessings. I’m going to record to the goodness that is waiting to burst fourth. No matter how small, or silly, I’m going to record the things that bring a little more joy into my life. I’m seeking joy, I’m seeking a better life and this is just one more way to seek Love.
Here are a few happenings that have given me some smile, some joy, some rekindling of goodness in my life over the last few days.
I finished a journal!!!! There is some since of great accomplishment that comes with finishing a journal.
