I am going to tattle on myself. If you look at the date from the first twoish post and then this one, you will see that there is quite a difference in dates.
This was NOT as easy as I had thought, but here goes. I thought about this every day since I last posted. See, I believe I “Thank God” all day for the things that I see. I didn’t want to sit down every day to just write. ” I am grateful for God”. Which I am, but that is not the point to this challenge. The point is to intentionally see the good, mundane or extraordinary in the everyday.
Well, today is my birthday. 35 years to be exact. (When I actually wrote this, sorry it was in October)
So here is what I am thankful for today:
God cares about the mundane details of my life. So much so that, this morning my parents called me and sang Happy Birthday to me! I can not remember the last time I heard them both sing that to me at the same time. Seriously I can not remember.
I am Grateful for my husband praying for my parents to do something special for me on my birthday.
I am Grateful that my husband did not use negative words today to describe what he was not going to do.
(sorry if this makes no sense, its kind of a long, boring and confusing )
I am Thankful that my daughter got me exactly what I asked for.
A card, she made, hugs and kisses. Oh yes, I can’t forget she sang Happy Birthday to me twice.
I am Grateful for the time I got to spend with my son, at a local restaurant today. Even though it did not go as planned. I got to spend time with him.
Lastly, I am Grateful for a God, who cares so much about me that He and only He could change my heart about going to a gym. So much so that I joined one, today, on my birthday. God has painted such a picture for me that “gym” does not fit it. It’s not a gym to me, it’s a place to relax and destress. Both of which does not make sense when I think of a gym. I think of sweat, tears, pain and work. That is not what I feel when I walk in there. ( I will keep you posted on that).
Update: I left this just the way I wrote it almost three-ish months ago because I want everyone to see and know that, you don’t have to be perfect with this. I want to encourage you to start something new! If you get side tracked and it comes back on your radar, try it again!
My goal now is to make this a daily habit forever.
Today I read Psalm 50:5 and Psalm 50:14. Verse 14 closed the door on stopping after 21 days. I will stop posting them on here unless they are relevant, but personally I will continue this forever in my notebook. Those two verses, the fact that I am writing this to you and I have this as an assignment for school all tells me, crystal clear, this is something I want to do, to glorify God.
What about you? How is it coming? Are you enjoying spectating?
Let me know that you are out there.
I would love a Hi!
