See the blessings….

I am one of those crazy positive people. Well, to everyone else I usually am. I am like that to a point with myself, but, I am hard on myself. Which I think everyone is. I tend to see the blessings in the worst possible situations. Plans can get broken, things don’t go right. I am right there saying well, this isn’t going right, because well, maybe God doesn’t want it to. I mean hey, there has to be a reason. I can always see the positive for everyone else when they are going through a hard situation. I try my best to help people find solutions to their problems. I can listen with the best of them and keep my opinion to myself. Even when it isn’t something that I would choose to do for myself. I understand that everyone is different and that what is right for me, even though I want it to be right for them, is not right for them or their situation. Saying all that. I know it’s all about me. LOL

I really think, no, I know that God blesses us in the good and bad times. A flat tire, might mean leaving later, and missing a car accident. A phone call might stop you from getting somewhere a few minutes early and not having to deal with the long wait and the irritating person that you sat next to that you really couldn’t deal with that day. Losing someone close to you, even though it broke you into a million pieces might bring you closer to God, your family, and you may start a new foundation, or resource that maybe your community never had before.

I really miss the child like innocence that I had when my Christianity was new to me. I am getting that back. I marvel in the littlest things. I have my down days, and I let myself feel sorry for myself for a minute, but, then I start to think of all the blessings that I have each and every day. A husband who loves me, 5 beautiful girls who I would give my life for, being able to worship my God anytime, anywhere. Being blessed with a son, who is alive and healed in heaven. Having food and shelter. Great friends, in real life and in the internet world, that at the drop of a dime, would be there to support me, and I them. Just being able to wake up each morning and saying Thank you God for giving me everything you have. Another day to live, laugh, love, cry, break down barriers and obstacles, another day to be. Another day to see the joy on my children’s faces as they tell me about their day, another day to cook them dinner and yes, another day to clean this house.

And if someone wants to bless you with something. Never turn it away. Even if you don’t need it, at the moment. Never take that away from someone. Because if they are thinking about you, and bring you groceries, a flower, a card, or even just themselves, God thinks that you need it and He put that on their heart to give that to you.

Blessing come in many different shapes and sizes. No blessing is too small. Remember that. So, when you are sitting at a stop sign and God blesses you with the sun in your face and you sit an marvel at it for a few seconds to long and the driver behind you starts going a little cooky nuts, just smile, and thank God.
