I challenge you to do one thing today. Take some pictures of your family and/or of your surroundings. Or better yet, download the million pictures you have sitting on your digital camera right now. I guarantee you no matter what is going on in your life, you will feel grateful for something.
Here are just some glimpses of what I am feeling grateful for right now…
…kisses on the mouth
…trying new things for the 4th time
... 13 giggly girls camping in the great outdoors
…hard work that is paying off
… teammates and friends
… grateful for a little munchkin again
…handing the camera to Jeff so that I’m in our pictures too
…seeing life from a different perspective
Take some time to look around and see the blessings that surround you. Even when life seems like the walls are closing in, stop and look at it differently.
Even if you aren’t in the mindset of feeling grateful, I challenge you to do one of the following:
Pick up your camera and look through a lens.
Take 15 minutes to describe what you are experiencing right now with your 5 senses.
Write down a list of everything you are grateful for.
Hit your knees in prayer and ask God to open your eyes and heart to what He wants you to see today.
Whatever you choose to do, I’m certain that if you just look, you will capture a glimpse. What are you grateful for today?Tweet
