Giving thanks turns into thankful living!

How is the 40 days of giving thanks going?  I know for me it has me giving thanks for things I have never thought much about.  My winter coat, my gloves, and oh yes, even my space heater in my office.

 The next time you notice a negative thought send yourself to your 40 days of wanting what you have list. You will notice a change of mood quickly.

The other day in church I noticed scripture that spoke right to my heart, You whom I have blessed.  It felt as if God was pointing right at me and I believe I finally accepted his blessing deep down in my soul.  When it touched my very soul I sat up straight, I had a little smile and I’m sure my eyes twinkled as I thought about being blessed by our God of the universe.  I thought to myself , “Do I live blessed?  What in my life shows and represents that blessing?  Do I carry myself in a way that shows that blessing?  Do I share the blessing with others?”

I walk around today with a new pride in being blessed. Anytime something tries to steal that special gift I received from those verses, I simply repeat them again and stand up tall as I give a wink and a smile up to the heavens.

Join me standing tall in our blessings by doing the same!

Happy living and Loving!  Kim
