While we were in Branson last week, God was showing me how much I had to be thankful for! Each day, I saw the beauty of His creation and couldn't help but say thank you! The weather was beautiful, all the flowers were in full bloom, the grass was lush and green, and there was family to spend time with. The Lord was teaching me that there was so much more to be thankful for than to worry and fret about! Psalm 100 tells us to

"Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations."

So, what things can you be thankful for or put a positive spin on and say Thank you for instead of, "Why is this happening?"

For my own life there are several things I can think about!

Thank you for Harper's cute little hearing aids that help synchronize the sounds during her "off" moments, instead of dwelling on the fact that Harper has Auditory Neuropathy.

I just cannot get the song "Count Your Many Blessings" out of my head, so today I am going to do just that! I am going to count my blessings and give thanks to God for His steadfast and enduring love and all the blessings he gives, whether great or small!
