Everyday Miracles and Blessings

Suzan and I visited a little bit this morning about everyday miracles and blessings. We all have them, but because they aren't 'bigger', we sometimes fail to see or appreciate them. As I sat here this morning, I decided I would jot down some of the many things I am thankful for. Here are just a few.

JESUS~SALVATION~WAKING each morning~my HUSBAND who loves me MORE (that's what he keeps telling me, anyway)~FREEDOM, and all who are serving my country to preserve our rights and keep us safe~EMPLOYMENT~my comfortable HOME~NOURISHMENT for my body~TRANSPORTATION so we can travel anywhere we like whenever we like~FRIENDS and FAMILY who love and encourage me~my COMPUTER so I can communicate with special people in my life and LEARN new things~MEDICATIONS to keep me healthy~DOCTORS to monitor my health~LAUGHTER..medicine for the soul~TEARS to cleanse my soul~ PRAYER~CELLPHONES...instant communication for HELP and convenience~HEARING my sweet LOUIE tell me HE LOVES ME, every other sentence~the BIBLE for inspiration and learning how we are to LIVE our lives~MUSIC~ALL THE SENSES (SIGHT-HEARING-TASTE TOUCH)~FRIENDS I've never met in person, and FRIENDS I HAVE MET~SHARING with others~GOD'S BLESSINGS~FREEDOM TO WORSHIP in any way I choose.... These are just a few. I couldn't possibly list them all. There are just too many. I feel so blessed.

Thank the Lord because He is good, His love continues forever. Psalm 106:1

Worship is when you're aware that what you've been given is far greater than what you can give. Worship is the awareness that were it not for His touch, you'd still be hobbling and hurting, bitter and broken. Worship is the half-glazed expression on the parched face of a desert pilgrim as he discovers that the oasis is not a mirage.

Worship is the "thank you" that refuses to be silenced.

We have tried to make a science out of worship. We can't do that. We can't do that any more than we can 'sell love', or 'negotiate peace'.

Worship is a voluntary act of gratitude offered by the saved to the Savior, by the healed to the Healer, and by the delivered to the Deliverer.

(Saying 'Thank You' from 'Grace For The Moment' by Max Lucado)

Thank you Jesus.

Oh Michelle, what I great post! I have learned to be VERY thankful for everything in my life too! Sometimes we get so caught up in everything that we don't stop to think about what we do have and how lucky we really are!
