blessings

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
Forever
And ever
And ever
For all
You've done
For me, for me
Blessings and glory
And honor
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!

Tracie,

I've been lurking on your blog for awhile now and I just wanted to say what a blessing you are. :) Everytime I read your posts I feel so inspired whether it's to praise the Lord or scrapbook or go give my kids a hug. :)

So thank you and I'll try to stop lurking now...*LOL*...
