Last Sunday - Blessed

As I sit and reflect on the year, I can truly say that I am grateful that I am so blessed.  No, things have not always been great or perfect.  I can say that things always seemed to work out in my favor whether I agreed or disagreed.  I am truly blessed.  It wouldn't be right for me to focus on my blessings without being able to say that I was blessed to be a blessing to someone else. 

I have managed to build some great relationships and connect with some very strong people.  Just another blessing.  When I look at my health, I can say that I am in better condition than I was this time last year.  Yes, another blessing.  All of my children are well.  I can't truly say that they all are all in their right minds because they are young adults and a teenager.  One in particular has fallen off of his rocker unofficially, but trust me, a mother knows.  But still blessed. 

When I look at my relationship with my husband, I can say that it is better than it was last year.  I am blessed that he is still able to think of me as his friend.  You know men are from another planet...Mars I think.  It is something about that species called man.   We won't go into that...another story all in itself.  But I can say that I am blessed to be able to understand him and accept him for who he is when I don't have a clue why.  Another blessing.

I am blessed to have two wonderful parents and a grandmother that love me dearly.  I learned at an early age that life is not all about money.  It is about the little things that others do for you to let you know that they love you.  I am so glad because I am the woman that I have grown to be because of them.  I am so thankful and grateful for them.  Another Blessing. 

Finances, well most of us suffer with the burden of bills.  I am not stressed out about it.  I know that it won't always be that way.  I know my blessing is on the way.  It doesn't matter what it looks like.  I know God has it under control.  Another blessing in the making.

I am not stressed out.  I am not worrying.  I am not sleeping in a grave somewhere.  I am not broke, busted, and disgusted.  I don't have to fight my own battles because I have a Savior that does that for me.  When I have a need, it gets fulfilled.  So the best thing I can say is that I am truly blessed.  I don't know what tomorrow will bring, but I know that right now, at this moment, I can take comfort in knowing that things will be better in the future than they are right now.  I am Blessed.

It is good to know that His Blessings are new every morning.  Regardless of the past and present, I know that tomorrow starts a new day.  A new blessing is on the way beginning at 12:00 a.m. daily.  I am also blessed to be a member of a wonderfully faith and spirit filled church.  Yes, if you have not put it together by now, I am a Christian above all.  To God I give the Glory.  His mercy endures forever.
