Gratitude Blesses You

Gratitude Blesses You

What do you think? Is gratitude another chore on your to-do list or is it something that blesses you? It might feel it takes more than you have but once we learn to count our blessings, it starts giving instead of taking. I’ve learned that gratitude blesses you. And when we learn this, we can’t live without it. First of all, it teaches us to pay attention to our lives. How else could we find things to be grateful for,…

Life Is a Gift from God. Do Not Take It Granted.

Life Is a Gift from God. Do Not Take It Granted.

Do you think life is a gift or do you take your life granted? Even if think in theory that life is a gift, there are times when we get so busy and task-oriented that we almost forget that life is a gift from God. A very precious gift from God. When we don’t appreciate breathing, we take life granted. And that leads us into life that is not all it is meant to be. What to do then? Life…

Holy Happiness

Holy Happiness

What’s your take on happiness? Is it overrated or is it something you expect to be? Sometimes Christians think it’s not something we should be. But how could we not if we’ve been right with God? What if happiness is holy? But may the righteous be glad     and rejoice before God;     may they be happy and joyful. (Psalm 68:3, NIV,*) Happiness is an outward expression of an inner joy. Nothing but Jesus can make us truly joy-filled. Nothing but Jesus…

Finding Daily Hope

Finding Daily Hope

Many people count their blessings. I do too. I offer thanks for them in my evening prayer. Then I move onto my concerns and petitions. Then I do something that brings me peace and lots of hope.

Like a baby content in its mother’s arms,     my soul is a…

Summertime Bliss

Summertime Bliss

  Oh, how sweet the light of day, And how wonderful to live in the sunshine! Even if you live a long time, don’t take a single day for granted. Take delight in each light-filled hour, Remembering that there will also be many dark days And that most of what comes your way is smoke. (Ecclesiastes 11:7-8, MSG) Summertime seems to be an on-going bliss in our household. Life is easy and worries are small. Thanks be to God! The…

Be Fruitful for Christ

Be Fruitful for Christ

I’ve never felt comfortable writing a Mother’s Day post. And even this is mostly an unlikely one. I have a wonderful mom (love you!) and I love being a mom. But my heart goes out for anyone who would (have) like(d) to be a mom and isn’t. I don’t feel comfortable boasting about my blessings. (But we are certainly encouraged to count our blessings). The only thing I want to boast about is God’s grace. And that is the best…

Life Is About Passing On Grace

Life Is About Passing On Grace

I’ve never felt comfortable writing a Mother’s Day post. Actually, I’ve never written one before. And even this is mostly an unlikely one. I have a wonderful mom (love you!) and I love being a mom. But my heart goes out for anyone who would (have) like(d) to be a mom and isn’t. I don’t feel comfortable boasting about my blessings. (But we are certainly encouraged to count our blessings). The only thing I want to boast about is God’s…
