Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Counting My Blessings - Day One

In our small group we are reading Crazy Love by Frances Chan. One of the things we talked about tonight was what we'd like said at our eulogy. It really puts into perspective what we're thankful for.

I'm thankful to have worshipped freely at church this morning, that my immediate family know Christ as their Savior, that I'm able to see and communicate with Hubby, L & M., that Aunt goes to the same church we do, for moments alone with Hubby, for walking along the shore of the lake today with my family, laughter, understanding, and our small group.

I should have taken the camera for our drive around the lake today and didn't. Sorry for no pictures. I'm hoping next week I'll include some pics in my thankfulness posts. Check out the Month of Thanksgiving button on the sidebar to see more or join in.
