Love this!

I wanted to share with you something that I read on one of my favorite blogs- GirlTalk :)

From GirlTalk:

"Recently, I came across this magazine article that CJ first showed me a couple of years ago. It’s a refreshing reminder of the grace of God that comes to us each and every day  (yes, even today!) I’d encourage you to read it  and then put it in a safe place--you’re going to want to read it again. I’ll leave you with a snippet:
'So here it is, another day. I did nothing to deserve it. I just woke up this morning, and there it was. I may have expected it to be there, but I had no right to. Just like Christmas morning, I got up to find a present waiting for me, a brand new day.

Yes, today is a gift. And it has my name on the tag. This present from God has been custom-made for me. God has filled it with blessings, some obvious and some in disguise. Its difficulties and challenges are tailored to fit my size. It may not be exactly what I asked for, but it is exactly what I need'

-Russell Board

I LOVE this part of the article!! What a great mindset to have.  It really puts things into perspective. I do not deserve to have another day, it is not entitled to me...each day is a blessing itself! 

I think if you have that mindset, little things remain little. When you are grateful to have another day, suddenly the bad hair days do not seem as awful! Hey, at least you have hair! Many bald men would love to have a bad hair least they'd have hair! :)

The best thing when you are having a bad day is to think of the blessings that God has given you! Even things we think are small, like feeling the warmth of the sunshine or seeing a beautiful butterfly is a blessing from our Creator!

Think about your blessings and give thanks!
