Thankful Thursday – Day 254

Today I’m thankful for trees. They’re majestic. They provide us heat during the winter and shade during the summer. They provide homes for birds, squirrels, insects, etc. And then we cut them down and they provide us a home. ^_^

Enjoy the Journey – Day 253

Life is a journey. There are mistakes that are made. There are blessings that are had. There are trials that you walk through. Enjoying the journey is important. You can’t whine about your place in life. You need to enjoy the place where you are at. Of course, be proactive. But enjoy it! Otherwise, you’ll be a whiny stressed person. Don’t think of yourself as being, “behind” someone else. Maybe you aren’t married at 18 like some guy you know. You didn’t make a million bucks by twenty-four, etc. Don’t compare yourself with others. Don’t stress because you aren’t as smart, wise, and “successful.” Enjoy life. Enjoy being with friends. Love others more. And love your God more. We serve a good God....

Love one another – Day 252

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.~ John 4:7

Willing to Sacrifice? – Day 251

What are you willing to sacrifice for your friends and family? It’s a question I ask myself a lot. After pondering it for awhile, I decide that I’m willing to lay down my life for them. And 10 minutes later I walk through a door with them following behind me and just let it slam in their face.  Nice.. I don’t think you can expect to sacrifice in a big way if it’s not engrained in you through the little things. When you’re under pressure you’re going to react the way that you’ve trained to react. And if you don’t sacrifice in the small things, you will not be willing to sacrifice in the big things when the pressure is applied.

Sunday Verse – Day 250
