I never thought that I would be someone who could eat the same thing for breakfast every day.
Today I do, and it is healing my body!
I never thought that I would be someone who could lose 100 lbs.
I have, and it’s made all the difference!
I never thought I would be someone who would author two blogs and write devotionals every day of the week.
God has blessed me with an active mind and nimble fingers. I am thankful.
I never thought I would find a group of like-minded individuals who would support me unconditionally, love me at my worst, encourage me when they were busy with their own lives, and listen to me sob into a tissue the same words I’ve said a hundred times before, without seeming bored or saying, “Just buck up, will ya?”
I have found those people, and continue to seek them out every Sunday morning and Monday night.
I never thought that I would be married this long, to a man this special, and have children this thoughtful, and grands this adorable.
I have all this and more…an extended family that blesses me in a hundred, thousand, billion ways each day. I love them all, and their love for me is what’s made me a better person day after joyful day.
I never thought that I would sit in the seat of unmerited grace and have love lavished on me so freely. I didn’t think it was possible to see this much of God through humanity. I never knew how deeply His love would alter who I’d become. How could I have imagine a life this rich?
I now know.
I am blessed.
I am remembered.
I am preserved and protected.
I have a Daddy in heaven.
I am not orphaned.
How lucky am I to be called a child of the Living God!!!
Why do you feel lucky today? What relationship or routine in your life has made all the difference?
