GrateFULL4 – Week Ending 07/01/2017

Hello, beautiful ones!  I pray that you’re doing exceedingly well!

God’s grace & mercy has blessed me so greatly. I can’t help but have an attitude of gratitude for all that He’s done, all that He’s doing, and what He’s going to do!

So, what is gratefulness?  For me, it means to give thanks for every good, and sometimes bad, thing or experience that I have received.  So often we are blessed out of the blue due to someone’s kind regard for us.  Other times we’ve put some work in on the back side and never expected a blessing, but because of God’s love for us, He blesses us anyway.

We can go days, weeks & months at times taking things for granted, and will only say ‘thank you’ when we realize God saved us from something bad.  I don’t want that to be me.  Hence, GrateFULL4 is my way of staying ever present of the good and the bad that occurs in my life.  I pray that you’ll join me weekly to not only read GrateFULL4 but also to chronicle your gratefulness in some way.

With that said, I know things can get crazy so if you missed last week’s GrateFULL 4 don’t fret; here it is for your reading pleasure :)


This week I’m GrateFULL4:

  • A great eye exam & money saved!  I found out my eyesight hadn’t declined as much as I thought in the last year.  I also upgraded my old frames with new lenses for less than I expected I would have to pay!

  • Answered prayers!  My aunt is doing better, and her prognosis turned from “things don’t look good” to “she’s going to make it”!  Prayer works!  Won’t God do it!
