One foot in front of the other. Putting on the blinders like the horses do in the race of a lifetime. Only focus, focus and focus some more on the gifts. Don't look to the left or right. Littered there are past failures and hurt. Look straight ahead at the gifts.
So much to be thankful for today. Thankful for the reminder that looking in the ditch won't bring the joy we all so desperately crave. Look up, see the sun poking through the clouds? One more snow storm they say. Storms can batter the sails. They look like they will be torn in two.
Ann Voskamp says this, The only way to keep in time with your Beloved… is to keep counting blessings. The way to keep the rhythm of life — is to count the ways He loves. Joy is a habit: wear it.
Joy is a habit. Count the blessings and name them one by one.
1. The love of Christ endures everything
2. The cares of this world are tossed into the ditch so I can look forward
3. A husband who loves
4. Children that find ways to serve
5. People who believe in me
What are YOU thankful for today? I would love to know.
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
