So does anyone else feel incredibly blessed today??? I was sitting here just thinking about how wonderful life is. I have such an incredible family (both my side and my hubby’s side!!!) and some of the best friends in the world that a person could ever have. Even though I don’t actually live close to any of the closest ones anymore I still have that feeling that I can pick up right where we left off in our last conversation with most of them. That is amazing to me. Life happens. And boy—life has happened big time to me!!! Most of you know that it has not always been smooth sailing for me or for that matter of fact for any of us here on this earth. We all experience those ups and downs and sometimes it seems that there are more downs than there are ups but through it all…God is good. I kind of think that as long as I stay focused on that I can handle just about anything that is thrown at me.
Somewhere along the line I discovered that I am a person of worth. That was not always an easy concept for an awkward, gawky, gangly pre-teen and teenager. I didn’t have the greatest self esteem in the world and never really liked who I was. But somehow I figured it out (that was definitely a God thing) and once I figured it out I liked who I was and realized that God had made me just like I am for a reason. I am still on that journey of trying to figure out what my purpose in life is but for right now I think I am just hanging out, trying to listen to what God has in store for me each and every day and then to DO IT!!! That is the hard part sometimes!
So today I count my blessings and am grateful for this day that God has given me. I hope I can make Him proud of me today and that I can show someone out there that this God thing is a worthwhile investment—-that it seems amazing and it is AMAZING to be loved so completely and totally. It is definitely something that you can bank on and in this day of uncertainty isn’t it nice to have something that is a sure thing—an investment that will reap benefits????
