What Are You Grateful For?
Happy Friday Lovebugs :)
Last night, Hubs & I celebrated 11 whole months of marriage! Woo hoo! He took me by the water for a nice little picnic at sunset. Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm an outdoor gal and I LOVE sitting by the water to just relax, write and just talk to God. Before we got into the night's festivities, he wanted us to take a minute to thank and appreciate the Lord. As we were doing so, I began to get so emotional. The beauty of the sky, the waves crashing against the shore and the moment itself brought so much peace to my heart. It was just beyond incredible.
When was the last time you thanked God for something? When was the last time you really took a minute to appreciate all that He has done? Whether it be providing shelter or something as simple as feeling the breeze of the wind, are you grateful and appreciative for it?
Hubs brought me a cute journal a while back (and yes it's PINK!). I told him that I will start keeping a gratitude journal, so I can reflect on the things that I am grateful for every single day because there's so much we take for granted in our lives. There's so many times that we focus on the negative instead of the positive that in the end, that's all we'll see. Let's change that!
Before going to bed at night, think about all of the things that you are truly grateful for. The small things, the big things, whatever. Let's cultivate a grateful heart and mind, focusing on the good instead of the bad. Before long, life will begin to be sweeter, joyful and for those who are truly pursuing it, peaceful!
