a morning cup of gratitude

Nov 6, 2013

I have decided I desperately need to focus on gratitude to keep my heart and mind in a feel-good place.

God is always coming to you in the Sacrament of the Present Moment. Meet and receive Him there with gratitude in that sacrament.
Evelyn Underhill

With that in mind, here are a few things I am grateful for today.

  • My foot is feeling quite good! It is amazing how much stronger it has gotten in just the past few days.
  • My car is really struggling with shifting and misfires, but it is still getting us where we need to go.
  • I am so, so grateful for a washing machine that works. This morning I had a big pile of stinky rags in the sink and I was able to toss them in the washer and they will come out clean and smelling great.
  • My femoral nerve was firing like crazy last night and this morning. I put a new oil on it, Vallee by Butterfly, and it is feeling so much better. Wahoo!
  • This morning one of my children was struggling to be kind. God gave me the vision to see this precious child as His child and not just as a contention causing problem in my life. I was blessed to speak patiently and not get drawn in to the drama and somehow even give a hug.

New eyes. That is what I am praying for. Eyes to see His will AND be okay with it. Will you join with me in prayer that I will be blessed with eyes to see His ways?
