***Before I even start I need to tell ya'll with Internet Explorer - for some reason that search engine doesn't like me! My blog header is not working on Internet Explorer. It'll come up and then switch to black. I'm trying to figure it out. Tips anyone? I hope to have it fixed soon. Pardon my dust - or black screen - until then:)***
Here goes. What is working:
1 - My smile. You know the saying - "Turn that frown upside down." It's a choice, isn't it? So let's all borrow a line from Buddy the Elf: "I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite."
2 - My legs. I was able to get out in the gorgeous sunshine and take a walk with my daughter yesterday. That's amazing for February!
3 - Speaking of the sun...The Sun. Amazing. It comes up like clockwork every single day! Imagine how dark it would be without it. And God didn't have to put it in the sky. He'd already made light without it. Probably because He IS light. But how great of Him to give us something so our minds wouldn't always wonder what day it way, what time it was, what year it was...and we don't have to worry about changing the bulb or plugging it in...
4 - Oh, which makes me think of my alarm clock. My awesome alarm clock. I've had it for twenty years and it still works. I don't have anything electrical that's worked that long. Come to think of it, I don't have anything at all that's been with me that long. Well, except for Paddington the Bear, but I digress...
5 - But the best thing that has always and will always work without question? The thing I'm most thankful for today? God's Word. It's active (Hebrews 4:12), never returns void (Isaiah 55:11), and never fails (Zephaniah 3:5).
Huh. When you start to count those blessings you find there's a lot to be thankful for, don't you?
So how about you? Things going well or needing a tune-up? Take a look around, I'd love to hear what's working well for you this week.
Blessings to you my friends!
