Let us enjoy this day and thank the Lord Jesus for the Independence that we so take for granted. Philippians 4:6-7 says, 'And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts, and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.' What are you thankful for today? Do you thank Him for all that He has done for you? Is your glass half empty most of the time or is it half full all of the time? Do you find ways and ask Him to show you ways of why you should be thankful? We can go along the path of life and not really ever extend our selves if we are not careful! Make a conscious effort to look for those things that you can be thankful for today and let that be the start of a beautiful thing. The more you praise and honor the Creator, the more your appreciation for the littlest things will come to be! You could be a great influence on people who have always viewed the messes instead of the masterpieces!
Your brother inn Christ,
