Thanks Dayle...for hosting Simple Pleasures. Reflecting on what's really important is the best.
Gratitude is the best attitude. ~Author Unknown
This week has been a struggle...and a bit frustrating. A few things didn't go quite right...and the weather....too cold. Yet....still....there's so much I'm thankful for....things like....
-Prayer - my youngest started to feel sick...feverish...wouldn't eat....head hurt - we prayed... next morning she bounced downstairs back to herself and ready for school.
-Faith - my neighbour needed a job. She kept saying no one was hiring...and bills were mounting. I told her...trust, a door will open. She went to a job interview...came home excited. Not only did she get the position...she also got the income she hoped for.
-God - some people say trusting in God is a crutch...only weak people depend on Him. For me He turned the lights on in the dark..He shone hope when nothing else could. I can't imagine not having Him in my corner.
-Words -funny how some words echo inside my head long after they're spoken or read and have the ability to infuse hope and faith. They challenge negative thoughts....and give me confidence that everything's gonna turn out alright.
-Writing...I won the short story contest through Tyndale College and World Vision. Writing feels like breathing and a found way for me to have my voice.
