I woke up this morning with my heart filled with praise!  Why?  Well, let’s see, FIRST:  I woke up!  That’s always a blessing!  I love my life and as of today I still have it!  As I was waking up, I started to COUNT MY BLESSINGS:  Among them was the greatest lady I’ve ever known, the love of my life, beautiful  in so many ways, and there she was, asleep next to me, in my bed!!!!!  Then I thought of the wonderful family and friends that God has blessed me with!  I thought about how proud I am of my children and grandchildren!   I thought about the great times of fellowship I’ve had with a handful of truly great friends, brothers and sisters in the Lord!

 

As I was more awake, I felt my toes and my legs and could move my arms and could see the sunlight peaking through the blinds!  I was warm and safe and realized I’m rich beyond belief ( in the things that truly mater), how blessed can a man be!  Then a cold nose poked me in the face and Chester was staring at me saying, “let’s go papa it’s time for me to go outside!!!!”

 

None of this is earth shattering for any of you, but for me, its my life, it’s what God has allowed me to have and I couldn’t be more thankful, happy and more committed to Him!

 

Have a great blessed weekend!

    Your morning may not be earth shattering but they reveal the riches we have that cannot be bought. Thanks for reminding us of what we don’t stop, recognize, and give thanks for as often as we should.
