Want to try?

I've mentioned it before
And I'm sure some of you have read it
But I can't shake it . . .
The taste of the life I am getting to live

The perspective I am gaining
the abundance that keeps coming
I don't want it to be shaken
And I want to include you.

Would you like to give it a try?
You don't have to do 1000 just yet,
just one thing a day. 
Just one step at a time?

And to look at it through this lens
Can you imagine?
His Goodness and Mercy
chasing after you

Dear Jesus
how can you be so good?
Hold my gaze, 

. . . 

Surely His goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6

Today I am thankful for rain and for His promises always being fulfilled . . . every single one of them! Joshua 21:45, "Not one of all the Lord's good promises failed; every one was fulfilled!"

What is one thing, just one thing you are thankful for today? It doesn't have to be deep. A few days ago mine was, "Today I am thankful for a new hobby of sewing."

Give it a try . . . just one thing. 
List it in the comments
or in your own journal
or text it to a friend
or tweet it
or say it out loud

and for a smile I'll include some endorphin releasers:

Phelps . . . the legend


  1. I'm thankful for new mornings and fresh mercies and hot coffee and young children who so quickly forget each of your parenting mistakes.

    Ooops that was four...

    1. I love it!
      I love most that it was so seamless to be thankful for four things :)
      Thanks for sharing and for forging the road of parenthood ahead of me
