Today I am Grateful for:

GOD’S LOVE:

I am so very grateful for how much God loves me. Also, I am amazed and grateful that He still loves me after all the mess-ups of my life.  It has taken a very long time, but I think maybe He is finally getting through my thick skull.

1 John 4-19 SW5

I do not know about you, but I have had a yo-yo relationship with God my entire life. I would like to blame that on the fact that I am an alcoholic (recovered, praise God), but I really cannot say that alcohol was always the catalyst for my chaos. I can do a pretty good job all on my own, even after almost 16 years of sobriety, of forgetting that my life really only works when I lean into God and ask for His help to face all the challenges of this world, and to praise Him for all He has done for me.

I just finished reading an amazing book, Broken into Beautiful by Gwen Smith. Plus I am reading another book Gwen wrote called I Want it All that is continuing to point me to an understanding of who I am in God’s eyes. Even at almost 68 years old, He still has big plans for my life.  In the next few weeks I will share info on a project I began over thirty years ago that God is nudging me to complete.  Prayers appreciated that this time I will stay the course and for protection from the lies of the enemy.

I love you all!
