Word Art Wednesday–Ephesians 5:20

Hello there!

I apologize for the lack of posting.  I have been so busy lately; I feel like I am still working on last week’s to do list—actually I am.  I feel like my days have been jam packed with so much and yet at the end of the day I feel like I didn’t get a whole lot accomplished.  I know that I have, but I guess I just expect too much from myself.  Am I the only one who does that?  Being busy keeps me from thinking too much, so I am very thankful for my busy life.

Anyways, here is this week’s Word Art Wednesday wordart for you.

 

Papercraft Memories: Ephesians 5:20 WORDart by Karen

We are in that season of the year when everyone focuses on giving thanks, but the Bible doesn’t say anything about it being a seasonal thing.  We are to give thanks always for all things.  I have found that being thankful for the little things gives me joy.  One of my favorite sayings has always been, “It’s the little things”.  So many times we overlook the little things and focus on the big things, but I have found some of God’s greatest blessings in the little things…the sunshine, a favorite warm sweater, a hug from one of my children, a smile from a stranger…  I have also found that being thankful is a choice that we have to make. 

Sometimes we have to look to find the good in things, but if we look we will find it.

Speaking of thankful, I was so touched by all of the comments and emails I received from my last post.  You all are so wonderful and so encouraging to me and a bigger blessing than you will ever know.  I am praying for each and every one of you.  If you have emailed me and I haven’t gotten back to you, I will be in touch.  You are on that to do list. :)

What are you thankful for?

Such a blessing it is to focus our minds on the little things all year round that the Lord has blessed us with! Thankfulness is a choice and when we are thankful we are joyful! Thank you so much for sharing Karen! Have a blessed day!

Oh I know that busy feeling - we have just had extended family, including two pre-schoolers move in with us.... :-) Loving it but...
Yes, thankfulness needs to be a conscious choice some days, but thankfully God is faithful and even when we let life bog us down, He will remind us of His great and sacrificial love for us which is always an encouragement.
Blessings
Maxine
