I am blessed.
I feel like I could stop there, but I will elaborate. Sometimes it takes special days to be reminded, I heard birthday wishes from multiple people yesterday. From my large awesome family to old friends from high school. It is always sweet to be reminded you are loved, my little family treated me to a great day of love and adoration. My husband spoke words of encouragement into my life that will forever be etched into my memory. It was simply a perfect day.
While each person only took a couple of seconds to send me some love, all together it made a great impact. I realized that sometimes we over complicate life, it can be really simple. We can make huge strides and differences in the lives of others by simply noticing them. We can be the gift that some of our acquaintances so desperately long for. All we have to do is spread love and encouragement instead of finding faults and complaining.
We are the ones in control, we need to make sure what we are doing with that control is God honoring.
Over the last year of my life I have began to realize all that I do have, none of the things that make my life sweeter can be bought. The things that bring me the most joy have been given to me by God, prior to this realization I tried to buy my happiness. Through new clothes, pedicures, new car, new house, anything that I thought would do the trick. While those things were nice, they were all temporary. They couldn’t possibly fill my heart with lasting happiness. Stripping things away from my life has brought me to the place I am today, realizing and noticing the things that bring me true happiness.
My real happiness comes from my relationship with God, sharing His love and gifts with the world. The love he has equipped me with for my husband is priceless ❤ our relationship strives in God’s hands. The compassion that I have for my boys is genuine, they are a gift to me. I used to be burdened by the responsibilities they brought to me, now I cherish their growing lives knowing that God has places them here on Earth for such a time as this.
I pray that you will seek out your blessings in this life, the gifts that God has placed in your life. God adores you. Look around at all He has blessed your life with, take the time to see it and feel it.
If we all work on being the gift to others we will in turn be blessed beyond measure ✌ just by simply being present in the moments of our life ~being aware of where God wants us and when~
