Today, I am feeling very tired, hubby and I have been fighting, and my throat is on fire. I hope I’m not coming down with something. Anyway, I digress – today, I am grateful for:
- God bringing deeper intimacy and lifting the veil of who I am with my husband. Situations are arising where I am forced to be authentic with my husband – otherwise the situation or argument will not be resolved. This is a major shift for me in that I am used to hiding myself away – keeping my thoughts, opinions and desires secret for fear of ridicule and embarrassment. So, I am very grateful that God is lifting the veil, so that I can truly be intimate, and honest, with my husband – on all levels.
- Not only did I run 6.99 km on Saturday, but yesterday I ran 5.2 km during my lunch break at work. And I enjoyed it. Of course today I will not run – my throat is really sore, and I am really tired, and I don’t want to push it and get sick now with the holidays just around the corner. I am grateful that God has changed my heart towards running, and that He is constantly renewing my mind for what is good and holy and wholesome for me.
- The holidays are just around the corner. I am looking forward to having a break and some time away from work, and some time with family, friends and loved ones. I am really grateful that God has put some truly amazing people in my life.
- No matter how tired I am, or frustrated, or whatever – that God is with me every step of the way. He will never leave me or forsake me. And when my time on this earth is done, I will be with God for all eternity. And I know it sounds weird, but perhaps the angels will let me sing just one song to God to thank Him for all that He has done for me. Just one… I am grateful that I am a Christian and my eternal prospects are so much better and more beautiful than my earthly ones.
