As time goes by I am more convinced than ever of the importance of a grateful heart. Our attitude is so critical to a life lived well. I am reminded of Corrie Ten Boom who wrote the life changing book The Hiding Place. If you could wrap that book up into just one thought it would be this. No matter what  circumstance you are facing, attitude will determine how you cope.

Our life circumstances can and will change on a dime. There are things that happen that are beyond our control. A spouse dies, a teenager rebels, a baby gets luekemia. All of these beyond what we can control.

What we can control is how we face the challenges that are put before us. We can become bitter and withdraw or we can be thankful for everything that comes our way.

This winter has been brutal in some ways here in Michigan, We have had multiple snow storms, ice storms and wind storms. All of them have been challenging. The car accidents, the navigation of countless pot holes as big as little swimming pools and broken wheels. All of that has been challenging. However, the snow reminds us once again of the beauty and magesty of God. A field that is covered in snow that sparkles like a thousand diamonds is gorgeous. To see the field untouched reminds me of the hearts that God sees through the lens of Christ.

So much to be thankful for today. What beauty can you see? I would love to know.
In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
