I thought and thought about what I should write today. I gave it at least 2 minutes of thought.
A funny Friday list thing??
Friday’s are usually my “light”, rambly day, where I brain-vomit all over myself and this blog.
(I just trademarked that word. Brain-vomit. So don’t even try to use it.)
I even filmed a tutorial on making an egg white scramble with roasted vegetables. Pah.
It didn’t save to my iPhone. I’m taking that as a sign to stay out of the kitchen for a few months.
Maybe a workout? My fitness brain HAS been INSPIRED by these fitmixer Bootcamp workouts!
No. None of that stuff.
When I really THOUGHT about what I wanted to say (and remember saying, because this blog is also a virtual scrapbook for me), the Lord spoke to my heart.
I had to be THANKFUL.
Not so much a “what I’m thankful for” post.
(there is truly SO much. Everything and anything. Just yesterday, I was blessed with a new training client, a thoughtful care package from Lauren, and some EXCITING blog news!)
An adjective. A descriptive word.
And in this case, a word which requires ACTION on your part.
To ACTIVELY CHOOSE thankfulness is to honor God and His blessings.
Christian or not, you gotta be thankful. And it’s gotta come from the heart.
You guys! Look around. Every.single.thing within your sight, touch, smell…all of it…is a BLESSING.
(That you didn’t earn. That wasn’t given through your good deeds.)
But rather, because God loves you SO VERY MUCH.
When we become so self-involved and forget humility, it is easy to think that by our merits, our brain, our good looks, whatever, that we somehow DESERVE what we have.
Now, I’m not discounting hard work. OR self love! Not at all!
But where do you think that ambition and drive comes from?
The more I look around, the more I see God’s hand.
Over my children. My marriage. This blog and the opportunities that continue to arise.
Over this little house. The air I breath. Over the food I burn.
All beautiful gifts.
Big and small, they’re all part of His love letter to us. How very romantic.
Today, I am humbled. Feeling blessed.
And I’m thankful.
Church is dismissed. ;)
QUESTION: How do you practice thankfulness? What are you thankful for?
