I’m grateful for a wonderful evening away with great girlfriends and the amazing stories shared of God’s faithfulness. I’m grateful for my new pilates class (haven’t formally exercised in 5 years – I do chase a lot of kids though!!) I’m grateful for a visit from my mother in law. I’m grateful for Stacy and Luca and the fun they brought to our home yesterday. I’m grateful that it is Friday and we’re starting a 3 day weekend in the upper 70s!! Most of all I’m grateful for God’s Word and the refreshing promises He brings. I’m grateful for this passage which I’m clinging to today.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23Now it’s your turn – take a few moments to reflect on all the blessings from this past week and cultivate your grateful heart!
