My husband has been away on business all week but I was determined to at least start this new thing off to the best of my ability. So, last Sunday, I sat down with Lilli and we made a plan.

Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 1

Let's be thankful to God 365 day in a row. Join me in thanking God when the sun shines down on us and when we find ourselves weathering the storms of life. Let us thank Him for all His goodness in the good times and in the hard times. Let's thank Him when He strengthens us and when He restores peace. Join me for the next year as I ponder on all of His goodness, tender mercies and blessing - large and small - that He showers on our lives each day.

I Need to be Nice for Me

I am discovering more and more throughout life that God does not NEED me to be nice.  I NEED me to be nice. Helping other and being kind to everyone you encounter warms your own heart.  Helping others gives you a fresh perspective and keeps you from focusing on your own problems.  Drawing the focus… Continue reading I Need to be Nice for Me

I Will Praise Thee Forever

Today my heart is overwhelmed with awe and thanks giving because of the greatness of God. I am inspired by the song, How Great Thou Art.  A young Swedish minister, Reverend Carl Boberg of Monsteras, walked two miles along the southeast coast of Sweden in the rain and then was inspired to pen the words… Continue reading I Will Praise Thee Forever
