Gratitude Gifts Today

Beautiful summer days, weddings celebrations, Sunday worship, plenty of work, and unlimited blessings to go with all of those - that's what filled this week up!  Sometimes when I feel like the day is less than perfect and there are problems and worries, I begin to count and am so, so amazed at how my attitude can be changed.  All of this, and I mean every. single. little. thing., is given by God in His gracious love and I am amazed that He does this for me day after day after day!  And He does the very same for you too, if you just stop and note it.  Blessings indeed!
