Feeling Thankful This Morning

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
Psalm 18:30-33 New Living Translation

I have had a lot on my mind lately. Ok, when do I not have a lot on my mind? I came in my office this morning knowing that I needed to write an inspirational blog. My daughter’s non-profit organization just gained tax exempt status so I wanted to write about that, but just didn’t know what angle to take. I knew I needed to consult the Bible for the answer and I knew that God would guide me.

Instead, God said, “look out your window, the clear window you just washed yesterday.” (Yes, He really said that, I think He is proud of me for washing those windows.)

There were two deer hanging out in my yard. My camera was right there, inches from my hand, so I took way too many pictures. I thank God for giving me this beautiful yard and beautiful creatures which frequent it, but I also thank God for digital photography.

I think His message to me today is to sit back, relax and enjoy the wonders around me, the gifts He has so freely granted me. I hope you can do that today too.

I did!! I wanderd from the house, walked around the yard (didn't pull a single weed & there are plenty) watched our little doe & her two babies eat Crabapples meanwhile my hubby was at my dads cleaning up more junk. I did make yummy Beef Strognaoff.
