A friend sent me this challenge that she is doing. She has wrote it out on several sheets of paper and is putting it in different places around her home. 

I have decided to do this challenge as well. Instead of letting myself stay angry, get fustrated, or become impatient I will choose to sing, worship, and praise with the Lord's help!

Will you join me in this challenge?

  • waking up to a gorgeous sunrise ... this is a story worth sharing: I had stayed up until past 3 in the morning doing homework and I had my alarm set for 7:15 because I had college that morning. I was fully expecting to feel horrible after only 3 something hours of sleep. But my alarm went off, I woke up, crawled out of bed, peeked through my blinds, and saw the most gorgeous sunrise I've seen in awhile. I headed for my coat and boots and went right outside to see it. It had me awake, in a good mood, and already feeling so blessed even though I hadn't got much sleep. >>Thank you Lord!


What are three things YOU are thankful for today?
