It’s been a long time since I shared a post like this. It’s good to be back!
Hi there! Happy Sunday to you. 😊💛 This is going to be a quick, fun post that I’m sharing with you on this fine weekend. I spent yesterday afternoon going to different stores with my dad (which was very enjoyable, by the way!), so I wasn’t able to do much in relation to blogging. As I write this, it is now 10:44 PM my time on Saturday night and I’d love to go to bed. 😂👌🏼 This is blogging dedication at its finest, y’all! (I’m suddenly very southern 😳😂)
Today is the day that some are taking their first breath.
Today is the day that others will take their last.
Today is the day that marks a beautiful turning point in the lives of countless people.
Today is the day that disaster will strike for those we’ll never personally know.
Today is the day that some will spend carrying out the mundane tasks their lives require.
Today is the day that others celebrate the fact that they’re simply ALIVE.
Today is the day that we should never take for granted.
Today is the day we can recognize that millions of others were not as fortunate.
Today is the day we should begin living.
Go live. Today is the day.
I wrote this post after thinking deeply about the fact that the present is just that – a gift, a blessing! I’m always looking ahead at what is to come, what excitement my future will hold, instead of recognizing the fact that I’m still here.
I have good physical health; I’m in a great place mentally and emotionally; I’m in a supportive family situation; I have all the necessities I require on a daily basis available to me …
I am grateful beyond words.
I am not simply alive, although that in itself is something I marvel over. Something as simple as the sinus infections I get almost yearly, which are complications of the common cold, would have done away with me years ago if it weren’t for the antibiotics brilliant people have created.
So, I have been saved countless times from minor disasters and complications of difficulties … but I also feel truly alive.
There’s a difference between breathing, moving, functioning normally, and actually feeling like you’re here with a purpose. These last few years have seen a huge improvement in how I see my life, what I have been created to do, and how I can fulfill that purpose today.
Today is the day. Whatever that statement may mean for you, I pray that it would speak deeply to your heart and encourage you this weekend. 💖
Hello! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ This is the first time I’ve ever really thought about this, but there are several songs, books, sermons, and conversations that have ultimately shaped the relationship I have with the Lord today. Those words of wisdom have taught me about the Lord’s love, what it means to know Him, and how to live a godly life.
Hi there! 💛 I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 🙂 I have decided to begin writing mini reviews of books again. Sharing why I enjoyed the books I’ve finished reading is an encouragement to me to keep reading, which is a good thing, since I have bookshelves full of books!
Hello! I hope you’re having a beautiful day 😊💜 Earlier this week, my mom and I were discussing the fact that I never thought I’d have baby siblings at the age I am now. Elizabeth’s (2) and Isabella’s (eight months) presence in my life has completely altered where I spend my time, which has then impacted and changed me in many different ways.
When I think, I think too much.
Things and situations, trials and circumstances …
They stay on my mind for far too long.
I’ll take something simple that I should hope for the best in …
But I analyze it instead.
