Think About It

03/03/2012

Blessing shows up

And finds you

Pouting

Scowling

Indifferent

Angry

You think you will be able to see it?

How, when your upper lip covered your vision?

Think about it

Inhale deep.

Don’t exhale yet.

Not yet

Not yet

Nottttt yet!

Now, exhale!

Let it out โ€“ the baggage

Out of your heart.

Now lift the side of your lips, with your facial muscles.

Turn on your eyes – yes, like a light bulb, so bright.

Why, you look funny!

But wait, you’re lovely now

Now that it turns to sincere smile and knowing eyes…

It has been a crazy month. The laptop crashed, the company I am working for is sold for the 2nd time, our section is challenged to generate more savings on top of the $2M saved, I worked extra longggg hours in the office for a number of days and I was attacked with depression.

But think about it, I am so blessed. I have challenges, kiddos who hugged me tighter, hubby who missed me, lovable friends who checked on me and the pillows? Cloud 9 and 10!

Thank you Lord!

“The LORD bless youย and keep you;ย the LORD make his face shine upon youย and be gracious to you;ย the LORD turn his faceย toward you and give you peace.” โ€“ Numbers 6:24-26

    So awesome and so true! Just the other day, I wanted to complain because every bone in my body hurt so much. I got up to go the bathroom and then on my way back to bed, I decided what the heck today I’ll try and lay on my right side. Big mistake! I cried for two hours while I tried to roll over on to my left side. Finally the pain drove me to find a way to get myself out of my bed and I ended up falling on the floor. I was in excruciating pain, but my scream ended in laughter, because as I hit the floor, the stuffed animals my nieces and nephews have gifted me with fell on top of me. Little Miss Red (small stuffed red fish) fell into my mouth head first and almost choked me. I spit her out and laughed like a banshee. I managed to finally rolled over onto my stomach, get up on my knees and with every ‘oww!’ I laughed and thanked God that I had hands to support me and feet to stand up on as I struggled to get up off the floor. Later I sat on the side of my bed and just thanked God that I was alive to feel that pain. That may sound silly, but I’ve realized that everything, yes everything has a silver lining; a reason to make us give thanks to God for His infinite goodness in our lives.
    May your week be awesomely blessed! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are an awesome person. I wanna thank you for make me smile when my world seems to fall down. Tnxs for sharing this. Thanks for that day you wrote me “you are special and beutiful”, maybe you didnt realize the power those words had, but now you do. You don’t know me, but you called me special, and beutiful, when people I though I could count on, treated me like shit.
    “You are special and beutiful”, Thanks for being that special and that beautiful.
    God bless you… always… โ™ฅ xoxo

      Huggggggggs to you. I know how that feels — to be treated like trash. I may not be able to control how I am treated but I have a control how to see that ‘trash’. Ever since I was young I have a fascination with ‘trashes’ — I see treasures in them. I never thought that one day I will apply it to myself — to see myself as treasure, to convince myself, to believe it. It is not easy but there will come a time that you have to decide, that you need to decide, if you will accept the truth and honor our Creator — that we are special and beautiful.

      Praying that the time has come for you to accept the truth and honor our Creator that you are special and beautiful — because YOU ARE! Huggggggggs and love to you ๐Ÿ™‚
