“Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.” Deuteronomy 28:6 (NLT)

There are not many times when I actually think about how blessed I am. It is usually after an event or trial where I will look back and realize that the hand of God was upon the situation and He was blessing it.

Today, although nothing is happening and we have nothing planned, I feel blessed. I can’t even say I am in a particularly great mood either. I have grumbled a lot today. I have felt lazy most of the day. My outward expression has not been made up of smiles either.

But today, deep inside of me, I feel like I have been and continue to be blessed. I have talked with my sisters and it was like a lazy summer day when we were young and we could kid with each other and just be sisters. I have written some things and felt like the words have been there even if my brain was trailing off in another direction. I have been blessed.

I hope as you read this, you will feel blessed also and know that our Lord will bless us daily. We just have to look for it within ourselves.

A Sunday Laugh

I usually ask the Lord what to write for my blog posts. The other day, Thursday, I had nothing. I went out to walk to hopefully get some idea of what to do.

As I stepped outside I heard, if only my legs would move. I chuckled to myself and thought that I could write something on that. I continued walking and thought about the light shining in our yard.

I came in, wrote both posts and actually scheduled the autumn light post first. After scheduling the posts I felt a nudge from the Lord. This nudge was that the one about dancing was from the Lord and was I going to put Him second. Well, obviously, I changed the order of the posts and I thought that was the end of it.

This morning at church as we stood to sing worship, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around to a friend of mine and she said, “Don’t forget to shake those hips”. I cracked up.

I know this woman reads my blog and she blesses me each time I see her name on a post. This was the first time anyone has commented personally to me in this way. The laughter she gave to me this morning was a gift.

I am so grateful for this blog. I am thankful for those who read and respond. I pray that the words I write will bless and minister to those who read. I also hope that you can get a smile at times.

Please know that I am blessed and ministered to daily from all of you.
