Do you ever wonder why things happen the way they do?
I’ll be the first to admit, I was so bad about this. Everytime something happened I had to know why it happened and if I couldn’t control it somehow, I went nuts.
And then something happened. I opened my eyes and noticed that God was there. He always had been. I just had to learn to live my life according to what He wanted for me.
Once I passed that point, it changed a lot of who I was.
Stopping to thank God for something wonderful in my life is like second nature to me.
I am so incredibly blessed.
I am a Christian with God ever present in my life.
I have two beautiful children (Rye and Brie) who love me unconditionally, and are always holding my hand and I believe they will forever.
I have a boyfriend (Michael) who loves me very much, and with whom I could not imagine a day on this earth without.
He has, but I am blessed to have in my heart, also, three gorgeous, wonderful, intelligent daughters (Nessa, Jess and Mel). Each with a special personality, and a uniqueness one can only find in that child. I am truly blessed to be in their lives.
I have the most amazing church family in the world. Fellowship Church has been honestly a major part of who I’ve become. I am truly thankful for my best friend for bringing me there.
And of course, I have one of the best girl friends in the world (Cyndi), amongst several other neat friends, whom I’m blessed to have (Daria, Shannon, Carolyn, Kerry, Erin, Michelle). And of course my best friend who I believe I mentioned up above (Michael).
We have food on our table, a roof over our heads, and many other gifts, that people take for granted.
I am so thankful that I am who I am, and that all the things I have been through in my life, have shaped who I am today. I wouldn’t take one moment away and change anything.
So today, on this beautiful Sunday afternoon, I’m just especially happy and thankful for the goodness in my life.
I ask Jesus to just lift up my family and keep us safe and together. I ask Him to bless my friends and family the way He has blessed me. I also ask for patience in life’s stresses, and the same for my friends.
In His Name……
