Today was the day that the Lord had made. I rejoiced and was glad in it. God made this day. I had no choice in the matter. He did not ask my opinion. He just made it. He did give me a choice concerning my attitude. I did not have to be glad. I could've looked at the messy house and groaned. (Ok, I did, but I fixed my attitude quick.) I could've scratched my mosquito bites and grumbled. But instead I thought about all the GOOD things I had going on. Here are a few of the things I thought of.
The windows in my car go down again, YAY! I am now able to get nifty pictures of myself, in the sideview mirror (until Michael drives though a rough neighborhood and makes me put the camera away and roll up the window:( It's inevitable, every party has one.).
I got to go down memory lane a bit at the in-laws. This is the Sting Ray Michael used to pick me up from high school in. How sweet it was! Below, is the tree house Michael's dad and older brothers built for him when he was a kid. Michael and I used to play chess up there. Now he sleeps up there every once in a while with Lucy and the nieces and nephews.
And what would a trip to Grandma & Grandpa Lusk's be without a tractor ride and a few smiling dogs?
I dare you to take a moment, and think of the good things He's done for you. Do you have someone in your life who loves you? (If you say no, you'll hurt my feelings.) Say it out loud. "Thank you God for______________. " You may find once you start you may not be able to stop thinking of good things in your life. Have a blessed day! Bible verse for today is...Cue Jeopardy music....
1 Chronicles 16:34 (New King James Version)
34 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Love you soooooo much, Thanks for reading,
