Today has been a trying day in some ways. I had a headache for most of the day. Caroline worked on my nerves a bit today. In other ways, it's been a good day because Mike was home and we spent some quality time together. At 10:30 tonight, after everyone was in bed, I went downstairs and read a Nancy Drew book. When I finished, I just sat there looking around and drinking in the quiet night-time atmosphere of my home. I started thinking about how blessed I am. My life isn't perfect. I am blessed beyond belief to stay home and have all that I need but still, some days I struggle like everyone else. I just feel blessed that even when I struggle with things, I have profound PEACE. That's so huge. There have been so many times in my life where I had no peace. No joy. My peace comes straight from the security of my salvation. I know my Redeemer lives. I know Him well. I talk to Him daily. I am BLESSED and highly favored by God. For that, I just want to praise Him continually.
As I sat down to blog tonight, a song came to mind that I want to share. I've been singing it a lot lately...
I just wanna thank you
For me, for me
Blessings and glory
They all belong to you
Thank you Jesus
For blessing me
Are you blessed? Take a minute to thank and praise God today for all He's done for you. Hugs!
