"And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. "
Embrace me this week, wrapped in your love, to see my life with a cup that is half full and not half empty. Open my eyes to the many blessing bestowed by your mindful eye as I go about my days. Let me live in glory and acceptance knowing full well you have every intention of meeting my every need - every day - every second.
Forgive me, Lord, as it is easy for me to lose site of these blessings. It is even easier to notice others who seem to be blessed with more. Deep inside, I know I am not privy to their deep despairs as they trudge through their own lives. Yet, I know it is remotely human to want and desire all things I am unable to acquire. Help me realize, Lord, you have filled my cup with all my yearnings, and may I drink abundantly and thankfully each day.
As I wake each day this week, let me begin with morning affirmations reminding myself how truly blessed I am due to your hands........
Let me be thankful for:
The sense of touch, may I use it more this week
My health, may I walk in nature more often
My family, may I share more special moments
Friends, may I drop the daily drugdery to enjoy myself more
My community, may I be more grateful for all they do
Seasons, may I admire the changes
The Internet where I can connect
Freedom and Opportunity to do whatever I desire
Inspiration to redefine myself daily
Aging, may I relish the lessons I've learned in life
Employment, having a job today is a blessing
Second chances and getting things right
The chance to travel and see the world
Literacy, being able to read what I love
Having your bills paid and food on the table
Long weekends to relax
Family and friends to share this Thanksgiving
Much love God,
