Enjoy the gift of today


Early Mornings

I love early mornings. I have not always loved them, but over the past few years I have learned to appreciate the early morning. In the early morning, my children are usually still asleep. This give me time to eat breakfast and have my morning quiet time with the Lord without interruptions. Early morning is also my time to run and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. I am reminded of my many blessings during the early mornings. One of them is the blessing of the new day. Every morning I remind myself to enjoy the gift of the day. We are not promised tomorrow.

Each day is another gift from God.

Take time to enjoy it.

Stop and count your blessings.

Be thankful.

Share your blessings and thankfulness with others.

Can you imagine what an impact it would make if each of us shared one blessing with just one person each day?

Today I am thankful for my health and my family. I have shown my family my thankfulness today through the little things that I know bless them. If I described my day to you in four words it would be these four words:


Crazy. Busy. Messy. Blessed.


And now it is late evening, and the children are in bed. It is quiet. It is less busy. It is less crazy. It is less messy thanks to our evening routines. It is still very, very BLESSED.

Enjoy the little things today. Practice thankfulness.
