Praise God

I'd just like to take some time to publicly praise our Lord! Life is pretty much as good as it can get right now; we had some major prayers answered last week, God is putting the right people in my life right now, and as I am learning and reading and praying - I am growing closer to Christ. We have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to in the months and year to come! I just pray that God is blessing you in the same way, and if he is not perhaps you need to seek him! Talk to him, he is always listening. If things are tough, pray! If things are good, praise! My heart aches so much for people around the world, shootings, stabbings, bombings, massive tornadoes! If you are alive and healthy right now, THANK GOD! If you have clothes, food, and a home; thank God! If you have a family that loves and supports you, thank God! Your life can never be that bad if you have breath in your lungs and loved ones around you! We all take so much for granted and that just makes us spoiled! Be thankful for what you do have and pray for those who have less than you, if you are in need of something, God will provide! We have recently changed our diets, and our activity level and we feel so much better, and know we are extending our lives for the sake of each other and our children. We are working on changing our surroundings inside our home, simplifying and minimizing... we are going to hold a fundraising yard sale for my husband's race and in the process blessing pancreatic cancer patients with the money we raise, and blessing our home with less clutter, which in turn makes our lives less cluttered! It is time to unplug from all these things and connect to each other in meaningful ways! More and more are we realizing that money and things are not important at all! My husband is getting out of the Army just short of retirement because that is how little it means to us, it is far more important to have him home with us than to send him off to war yet again and get all that extra money.

Please, don't take anything or anyone for granted. Life is way too short. If you have hurt someone, make it right; if someone has hurt you, forgive them. And if you can bless someone else in any way, do it! You could make their whole day or even their month, or perhaps even turn their life around!
