Blog Birthday

I had to go look it up in my journal to be sure.

March 19th was my 1st blog birthday. So happy birthday to my little blog.

God has been good and it's only by His grace and love that I've been able to come this far.

A Poem

Brighten Your Corner

We cannot all be on famous or listed in “Who’s Who,”
But every person, great or small, has work to do.
For seldom do we realize the importance of small deeds
Or to what degree of greatness unnoticed kindness leads,
For it’s not the big celebrity in the world of fame and praise,
But it’s doing unpretentiously in distinguishing ways
The work that God assigned to us, unimportant as it seems,
That makes our task fulfilling and brings reality to dreams.
So do not sit and idly wish for wider, new dimensions
Where you can put in practice your many intentions,
But at the spot God placed you, begin at once to do
Little things to brighten the lives of those around you.
If everybody brightened up the spot where they’re standing,
By being more considerate and a little less demanding,
This dark old world would soon eclipse the evening star,

If everybody brightened up the corner where they are.

The End

So I’ve spent 30 days talking about what I’m grateful for. It’s been hard at times, once you get through the obvious you have to look deeper.
But this has been a great blessing. Sometimes I get so focused on my needs, my wants, my schedule, that I forget to look at the blessings I have.
This has been a good chance to remember what I have.
And I pray that as you have traveled with me you have been encouraged to be grateful for all the things you have.

Gratefulness Challenge: Day 29

I'm grateful for neighbors. I may have said it before, but I'll say it again.
I just spent two hours with my family talking to a neighbor. She was kind and amazing. She's just had a battle with cancer and seems to be beating it. But she maintains a cheerful attitude through everything.
God has blessed us with some great neighbors.

Gratefulness Challenge: Day 23, 24, & 25

Sorry that I haven't been posting the last few days. I've been recovering from the flu, and you know how that goes.

I'm grateful for dogs. When you live in the country like we do they are more than fun to play with, they help protect the land from unwanted guests.

I'm grateful that God is faithful, never changing, and loving.

I'm grateful for jewelry. It adds such a nice touch to my outfits.
