Tuesday Unwrapped

Happy Tuesday!
So today, I'm taking part in Tuesday Unwrapped! One of the blogs I follow, Chatting at the Sky, runs this little thing every Tuesday. It's basically just a way to sit back and take in the day for what it is.
Now I'm going to be honest here. I would say 95% of the time, I don't do this. I definitely get all caught up in the world and everything that's going on and forget that tomorrow is not promised to me. I forget that I should be living each day to the fullest because we never get a do-over. This is it people. Each day that passes is one that we never get back.
That being said, I'm still trying to figure out just how to live each day to the fullest. I mean really, how does one do that when at least 9 hours of your day is in a cubicle? So once I figure it out, I'll let ya know. And of course if any of you have figured it out, please let me know!

So for now, I will sit back and enjoy my day. I will live it to the fullest. And since it's early and I haven't experienced too much today, I'll take a look at the unwrapped gifts of the week so far.

In all that I can find in life that I'm unhappy about, I can find 10 more blessings. Isn't that crazy?!
I live a life that's blessed.
See, God has already promised His blessings on us. We don't have to ask for it(You should definitely go to www.passioncitychurch.com, click on "watch" at the bottom left, and listen to the February 14th message).
I am trying to re-think my prayer life and focus more on being grateful for the blessings rather than ranting on about how they're not enough.
That's deep.
And stabs my heart every time I think about it.

When I really stop and take a look at my life I see just how blessed I am. I am blessed with a roof over my head, a car, a job, a loving husband, a loving family. I am blessed with great friends. I am blessed with talents. I am blessed with a purpose. I am blessed with a love for God. I am blessed with a love for life.

I could go on and on and on and on.

So I encourage you today, take a few minutes to stop and smell the roses. Stop and watch the sun set. Just stop and take it all in.

  1. We're on a similar thankful path today- I unwrapped turning "grumblies" into "goodies"- similar to yours. It's hard to be thankful for things, sometimes, like the stack of papers I have to grade or the cubicle walls you sit within, but it means we have jobs, and that's a blessing. Thanks for sharing today!
