Choosing To Say

View On Black [...] Blue eyes Baby's got blue ...

It is a typical Monday. The beginning of a yet another, long week. I’m already tired and the day has just started.

On some days, thanksgiving and praise do feel like a sacrifice…the giving up, the letting go. The choosing to say, thank you.

It can be a challenge to see the blessings, even when right in front of my face. Mondays are just like that for me.

Breathing deeply, and opening my eyes…… to all that is before me.

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that confess his name. Hebrews 13:15 NIV


Today I am thankful for:

* another day–and realizing that some don’t have this

* time spent with my husband–just the two of us

* sons that can drive to school–how exciting for a license in a wallet?

* eggs boiling on the stove

* early morning walk with the dog

* news that makes me think

* a funny story that creates a smile

* the dew on the grass

* sunshine

* bare feet on the cool morning floor

* rumpled sheets

* full pitcher of iced tea in the refrigerator
