I'm Thankful !

I have so much to be thankful for again this year. I have tried to be more mindful of being thankful throughout the year also. I have taken time to watch a sunrise, as well as a sunset. I have noticed the new blooms in the Spring, the green leaves in the Summer and their changing colors this Fall. I have the most amazing children - my daughter and son in love, who are always a great support to me. My grandson is my pride and joy! I am thankful!

What if...........

What if I give each person I come in contact with today a smile? What if I take time to listen to a child who wants to share about the adventure he/she had last summer? What if I stop and help the young mother pick up the belongings that have rolled across the floor when her bag tips out of the shopping cart? What if I spend 15 minutes sitting in the back yard observing the beautiful day God has given me? What if I buy an extra can of veggies at the store to donate to the food pantry? What if....................
I think that perhaps it would make a difference in other's lives, but that the biggest difference would be evident in mine!

Have a wonderful day!

~ Changes ~

I have recently been thinking about the changes that I continue to try to make in my life. I was reflecting on mistakes that I've made and how I try to do things differently rather than repeat a mistake.
Sometimes it's easier to do the same thing over and over, even knowing that the result will be the same. I guess it's part of our human nature to follow a path that seems easier at the time, rather than taking a path that may be more difficult to walk. It's my desire to be able to see before I begin down a path if it's not the best one for me and to learn from previous mistakes.
I am thankful that God walks with me, always!
Have a great Monday!

The Providence of God

There was a discussion in a Sunday School class I was a part of recently about The Providence of God.  Different people shared how at differ...
