It’s a New Day!


sunrise_62312_a_205870The sun is shining as I’m sitting here enjoying a cup of coffee before my day jumps into action! Today, I’m trying to keep my focus simple because I know at any minute my son will wake up and all hopes of a quiet time of any shape or fashion will be dashed once again.

Thankfulness is my prayer today. Thankful that I am a SAHM. Thankful that I have a toddler. Thankful that I have a husband who has a job and works hard, allowing me to stay home. I heard it said recently that when you feel frustrated with your same mundane tasks of picking up after everyone, think about how thankful you are that you have a husband to pick up after. Be thankful for the child you have who is loud and makes noise because that means you have a healthy child. Wow! There’s a whole new perspective.

Albeit simple, today I will choose to focus on thankfulness. The Lord is the Giver of every good and perfect gift. And, when I’m struggling with yelling¬†at my toddler for the tenth time, I’m hoping my mind will reflect back upon these words: be thankful. I have to choose it though. We all have a choice everyday. What will it be for you today? Why not choose thankfulness.

Blessings on your day!

James 1:17¬†“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (NIV)
