So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Some days…some days are hard.  Just that.  Just plain hard.  And there are a million little reasons and a couple big why they’re so hard.  There are just times that I would just much rather stay in bed than to get up and feel like I fighting the same battles that I have been fighting for years.

I told my friend tonight that I’m just tired.

And I am most definitely not overflowing with thankfulness these days.  I don’t really know why.  It’s not a bad season.  It’s just a bit dry as of late.

Good things are happening and good changes coming around the bend, and I let the wind blow me whichever direction it chooses.

…Continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him…overflowing with thankfulness…


I get it more wrong than right most of the time.  I fight daily hourly with all the don’ts that were part of my youth that I miss all of the go and dos.

Overflowing with thankfulness.

I think I’m going to start heading that direction now.  Go and do.  Love and be thankful.   I just kinda feel like that’s what it’s more about than do not.

So today is a new day of thankfulness.  It’s going to overflow.  Thankful in the good, bad and just plain frustrating things.  And it will probably be harder than I’d hoped and take longer than I want, but I can choose to be thankful, so that’s what I’m going to do.
