Good morning! I want to challenge you all to start off today with a thankful heart. So, right now, wherever you are, take a minute and make a list of five things you are thankful for. Big, small, serious, ridiculous, the key is being thankful RIGHT NOW for (at least) five things. (I don’t know why five. Three seemed like it would be too easy and Friday and five both start with F, so there you go.) Don’t just stop with your list though, take your list and turn it into a prayer of thanksgiving. Recognize where each of those blessings came from.
Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. (Psalms 105:1 NLT)
And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:20 NLT)
My Friday Five
1.) It’s Friday…enough said.
2.) Football Prayer Services (pep talks with God as Ty calls them) and the ability to send my kids to a school where a priority is placed on prayer. (Please Lord keep these boys safe this weekend.)
3.) Good coffee and a beautiful sunrise. I know that’s two but they go together in my book. I might as well throw cinnamon rolls on this number too because they were part of the coffee/sunrise combo this morning.
4.) School uniforms and French braids and headbands because they make mornings soooo much easier.
5.) Words and all of you who read my words and share my words. (And when you share with me the way God is working through them – wow! Just wow!)
What are your five? I would love to hear them!
Have a fantastic Friday! Go forth and be thankful.
