  • FOR TODAY (June 1st, 2009

    Outside my window...I see blueberries about to bloom.Lots and lots of flowers beginning to bloom.

    I am thinking...Oh how has my life gotten where it is today.

    I am thankful for...Having a job,because alot of people have lost
    theirs. That my beautiful family is well. For the beautiful friends that I have came across through blogging..

    From the learning rooms...(Can be any room where I can read or watch the news..)

    From the kitchen...My favorite room in my home. I spend alot of time in the kitchen. That's the room that I really become creative.

    I am wearing...Red Miss 101 t-shirt with red and white puppy dog pajama bottoms. I have been off today..

    I am creating...A plan for me.I am just not sure where I am heading it seems to be down a long narrow road with a dead end.

    I am going...To spend lots and lots of time in my BIBLE and I am asking each and everyone of you to pray for me.

    I am reading...Daybreak With God

    I am hoping...That through prayers and praying that GOD will give me everlasting strength..

    I am hearing...Bella barking,the TV up stairs,car passing,children
    outside playing..

    Around the house...Things that I am wanting to rearrange.I just
    need on the dime make over.I need to add lots and lots of color

    One of my favorite things...Connor starts baseball tournments this week.I plan to go to all the thrift stores.Hoping to find that
    great treasure..

I am certain that the Lord will be pleased to give you everlasting strength. Just try to remember that '.... the joy of the Lord is your strength' (Nehemiah 8:10)
Being joyful is different to being happy because being happy relies on circumstances. Being joyful is a decision - no matter what is going on around us, it's the 'knowing' that God loves us & wants to be with us & help us - it's that joy that will give us His strength to endure anything that life throws our way.

God has a special plan for each & every one of us. Where you are now at this point in time, whatever you're doing, it's in that that there is something special.

Thank you for sharing your day and your thoughts.

God Bless you,
Elena :)

Thank you for your comments on my blog. It is so exciting as a new blogger when someone has 'connected' with you.

Thanks also for sharing your thoughts. The road may be long and narrow but with the Lord it will never be a dead end. My prayer is for you today.
