I really like my life in the city. I like being able to walk or bike everywhere if I choose. I like being near my garden and I am excited to be home with all my roomies. I am a blessed woman. I am learning that a thankful heart has much to be thankful to be thankful for and a complaining heart has much to complain about. My mother and I always wondered if it is possible to be positive and upbeat all the time. I think what is possible is to have an attitude of gratitude all the time. Though I am stressed at times about the job I have I am thankful, because I have had time to be with my family and friends while still earning money. I am thankful that I have the ability to love others and bless others with gentleness and kindness. I am thankful for the hard days that form my character to be more like Jesus.
I am thankful that my walls of protecting myself are coming down and that my belief that God is sovereign and can protect me is going up. He protects me by giving me wisdom. I am not just allowed to do whatever, He gave me a brain so that I would make wise decisions not stupid ones. I am thankful that I have friends who have knowledge of finances, love and life that I can draw upon.
I am thankful for my roomates who bring out my pride so that I can learn to walk humbly. I am thankful that I need only ask what do I need to do today and than allow my God to shape it. No need to get uptight when things aren't quite just so he has it under control. Yay!
I guess what I am trying to say is I am thankful. What are you thankful for? I would love to hear.
