When things get hectic everyone tends to freak out. At the beginning of school I felt so stressed and overwhelmed. Then I realized why? I have so much to be thankful for! At a recent conference I went to one of the speakers said "if it doesn't matter in 10 years, it shouldn't matter right now." Isn't that so true? I loved it!
So, on Monday when I started to get stressed I thought of all the things that I am thankful for... below are just a few!
Cooper and his parents.
The way that they both make me laugh. How blessed I am to have this family in my life. They constantly remind me to be thankful! I appreciate them.
The high school group I help out at! I am so blessed that God put this in my life and that I can hang out with these guys weekly! It's fun and it's great to learn about Jesus with them. God shows me a lot just through these high schoolers. Alone, they are a blessing!
My parents and boyfriend.
My parents may be hard for me to handle sometimes but, I know they will always be there. How blessed I am to have parents and for all the things they have provided/done for me! AND of course Trevor. How he always shows me the joys in life and how to have simple laughs. It is amazing how anything and everything is fun when I am with him.
Of course is always someone that can cheer me up!
"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!" -Psalm 107:1
How easily when something goes wrong we can forget that. When you try and look at the good things in your life you really can see a lot. Looking at the bad is not only wrong, but makes you so sad! It seems like common sense but, everyone continually does it!
LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
LOVE YOUR LIFE.
It's what we were called to do, and lets be honest when you love all of the above, life is great! Accept things the way that they are.
