little things that make me realize the enormity of God, like that
amazing bug that landed on my windshield at a stoplight yesterday. I've
got no idea how to identify it. There's gotta be millions, if not
billions of little nuances between everything in the world. That's
rather amazing. (No. I did not turn on my wipers to then kill it. It
flew away on it's own.)
The ability to pay for co-pays and good health insurance;
Someone letting me know they appreciate me;
An emerging inner peace;
My friend Christos. He cracks me up;
Getting a free case of Myoplex Strength from EAS (thanks Stef);
That God loves me enough to have brought me into His fold. It took dragging, but by whatever means necessary is how He'll do.
Today I am grateful for:Such a lovely night that made me appreciate my city;My church community and their support;So much support on my thread here;Waking up and hearing birds signing in the rain;The security in knowing I can fully rely on God.
Being able to sleep in some this morning;
Hearing my little 4 year old cousin used the
expression, “suck it up” and that cracked me up;
Being cleared to start with Paypal;
Knowing that God is never far, actually, so
close that He’s within me.
Today I am grateful for:good training at work so I'll be less lost;excitement about Nashville;finding the food truck aggregator so I know where the Far East Taco Grille can be found (really... that good);sleeping in my own bed tonight;being legally parked in a "Monday" spot and since Monday is a holiday I can remain there for 2 weeks;the restorative power of God
Today I am grateful for: The backing, support and advice from a great group of folks on this website to help me and others continue on an finish their challenges. The groups that support the Breast cancer awareness month that helps so many here in the US and elsewhere. The enthusiastic folks that will be attending the Championship weekend in TN , those of us that can;t go this year wish you well , have fun and our prayers and thoughts are with y'all. The enthusiasm to undertake another challenge next year, hopefully earlier in the year this time. the healing power of God to help all our ailing team members with their injury and illness and misfortunes in life.
Excitement about tomorrow;A cute text from Troy;Having almost everything done already;Feeling at peace;The love of God.
A text from Christina that made me cry because it was so kind;
Meeting and seeing again so many wonderful people this weekend;
Stephanie and Don for their relentless efforts and support;
A hug from Don when I really needed it;
Knowing God understands when I tell Him I'm frustrated with Him
because I don't understand;
That regardless of what others may think of me, God loves
My boyfriend and the love he continues to show me - even though, sometimes, I don't do the same :-(
My new job;
My new co-workers and how kind they are;
THIS PROGRAM and how much better my body feels on it - NO PAIN!!
God - for His direction and unconditional love.
-"The BFL program for being simple and straight forward. I like knowing what needs to be done. It's not easy, but it's not complicated. " (from the first post in this thread!) This program does incorporate into a "LIVE-it, not a DIE-it"
-That now people at work step aside on the stairs to let me run up. 5 wks ago, they had to wait to ask me questions at the top, so the dizzy spells and chest pains to stop.
-For my husband, who feels so much better in body, mind, and spirit, and is excited about sharing it with me, and everyone else
-God. For his forgiveness, and for the body he gave me, that is forgiving me one day at a time for neglecting it.
