My Blessings Are Many

My blessings are many and picking 5 is beyond difficult for me. Today is a good day for me to think about my blessings and all the things I should be grateful for. It has been a shit show of a few days for me and have been feeling sorry for myself and rather self absorbed in my misery. The topic of picking 5 blessings in my life couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time.

  1. My Faith-My faith is a blessing and a gift. I think it’s so important for everyone to have something to believe in, a higher power if you will. Something bigger than yourself.
  2. My husband-Quite frankly, he is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He couldn’t of come into my life at any more of a perfect time than he did. I was a year out from my divorce, broke, depressed, didn’t trust a soul, hopeless….he showed me and reminded me that I was worthy of being loved, and everything he has ever promised me he has done and more. Seriously-there are men out there that say what they mean and mean what they say. They will come through and be the man that you need them to be.
  3. My children-I have these beautiful perfect children that are the greatest things I have or will ever accomplish. There is nothing that will compare to anything else I will ever do in my life than my children.
  4. A Home-Not a house but a home. A place where the us and the kids love and want to be. The love, the laughing, and everything in between.
  5. Health-I am a 42 year old female who is slightly over-weight and likes to have a drink here and there. My health is good. My children and my husband are healthy.

Writing these 5 things today for you and for myself has already improved my mood tremendously. These are the things I need to dwell on every day! And not the things that are bothering me.

When God Shuts A Door…

I saw a quote today and posted it on the Revealing Excellence Facebook page, it said in essence, when God closes a door stop banging on it…meaning He closed it for a reason.  We may not understand or agree with God’s reasons and timing; however we need to trust them.  God has the bigger plan and He knows what we need better than we do.

Having Faith means trusting what we cannot yet see.  Sometimes when we are seeking the answer to something we need to let go of it and simply do the tasks before us.  Trust that when the time is right the way will be made unmistakably clear to us.  At times this can look like stepping out where there seems to be no road under our feet; there are times when we have to follow God’s prompts to go forward even when we do not see the pavement in front of us.  During these times God acts as our eyes, He sees the road ahead and He directs the path on which we walk, put one foot in front of the other…do the tasks that are before you each day and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. 

We may not see the whole road, yet as we step each time there is solid ground that appears beneath our feet.  God makes a way where there is no way, some days this is my mantra…

So when God shuts a door just leave it closed and go find the open one…
