Get Your Gratitude On

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Expressing gratitude is a key to living well. It opens our hearts to God and others, awakens our faith, and gives perspective to life.

Yet we often find ourselves stuck in the mire of discouragement, depression, hopelessness, resentment, and bitterness and expressing gratitude is the last thing we want to do and can feel very difficult to attempt.

Much easier is the choice to grumble, complain, doubt, fear, and expect to be disappointed both in God and in others.

Expressing gratitude removes the obstacles to seeing the wonder of life, the handiwork of God’s hands, and the beauty in people. The expression of gratitude leads us to experience gratitude. Experiencing gratitude changes us.

I Love Being a Mom

I love being a mom. I absolutely love being a mom. Nothing has brought me more joy.  Nothing has shaped my life more.

From the first moment of learning I was pregnant with my firstborn until now, being a mom has touched the deepest places of my heart. It has exposed my most vulnerable weaknesses and given a venue for my greatest strengths to shine. Motherhood has been a constant journey of becoming.

I’ve experienced the fruit of my journey in the lives of my kids. At times, I’ve seen how my devotion and love have shaped my kids in positive ways. At other moments, I’ve come face to face with how my imperfections, lack of knowledge, and unhealed places have negatively impacted my kids.
