Count 

WORTHY THOUGHT: Count Your Blessings 

It is impossible to be thankful and at the same time be grumpy.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. -James 1:7

If the birds only burst into a song once a year, we’d all pay attention. But because they sing every morning we scarcely bother to listen.  

We tend to exhibit a degree of thanksgiving in reverse proportion to the amount of blessing’s we receive.
When we are discouraged thinking all is lost count your blessings name them one by one. And it will surprise you what the Lord has done. -Johnson Oatman Jr. (Hymnal)

Slow Down 

I thought today I was going to write a wonderful tribute blog about my twins.  

                   That did not happen!

For the sake of preserving and getting over my head cold and bronchitis I could not risk the snot session that all the memory unpacking would have created.

Instead I will share a song I ran across months ago by Nichole Nordeman that has been wrecking me with the reminiscing of how fast the years really do go by.

Today my amazing twins turn 18 years old.  

In a little over a month they will be graduating High School and start college.  

It is true – You do blink and they grow up right before your eyes.

To my beautiful children, you are the very breath in my lungs. Despite my short comings and failings I Thank God that He chose me and entrusted me to have the unbelievable honor of being your Mom.  
       
              Slow down would ya-just a little! 
                

                     Happy Birthday

Thanksgiving Scrabble 

Just like the game of Scrabble. Take the letters you have been handed in life and make a statement or word for yourself. Put them together to spell out a winning word that creates an environment where you could easily collect points or value to bring you to a higher level of success. Decide today that you will take everything……all your good and bad letters to formulate strong words that leads you to be a winner.
