"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." (Matthew 6:33 NKJV) When you get up in the morning what is the first thing you focus on? Is it fixing breakfast, the office meeting you have, getting the children to school, or is it your blessings? Too many times we're so busy, rushed, anxious, and worried over things in our lives that we fail to see the many blessings we have. Thing is, the thing or things that we focus on the most is what direction we will take in our day, and greatly affect how your day, and future days, goes. If you focus on that meeting you're worried or concerned about, you're going to stay anxious and stressed; but, if you focus on your blessings you are going to feel blessed and therefore probably more content and happier. So, are you willing to center your thoughts on the blessings God has given you...this day and every day from now on?? It is a chance to celebrate God's gifts to you...your friends, family, the world around you, nature, your talents, your opportunities. And, don't forget your own life. You're a miraculous, beautiful, wonderful, unique creation of God. You have tremendous worth and importance. There is a story we read once we read where a woman, off the streets, found God, and even after she was attaced and hospitalized, her words were, "I am a child of God, dearly loved, and beautiful to behold." We should all remember this. Give thanks for ALL your gift and SHARE them. Today is the perfect time to begin!! Love, Beau
