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

Multitudes on Mondays - June 6

John 14:16 - From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.
I am learning that counting my blessings brings contentment, chases away complaints and helps me look to the Giver of all.
Many of the gifts in this post come from the major task of last week - sorting through all the things at Mom and Dad's house. I was going to write about some of it here, but I think I will save it for it's own post. I still have some pondering to do.
