I heard a song on the radio yesterday, and I totally decided that it'd be the theme of my blog today.
And it still will in some later blog....
But then this morning, I lost my keys.
In the great unknown....
And didn't find out until we were all packed in the car this morning ready to leave for a morning worth of drop offs and appointments.
And another song came to mind.....
My favorite line in the song...
"In the middle of my little mess, I forget out BIG I'm blessed."
"But I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
Might not be what I would choose
But this the stuff You use"
So this morning... as I'm SO frustrated beyond belief...
I'm counting my blessings.
I have a sweet friend who came to pick up karalynn and her friend and take them to their daycamp.
I have a hubby who took off work and drove home to bring me the spare key.
I have a van to DRIVE to doctor appointments this morning.
I get to go to the park with my kids after the appointments and "play" while we look for keys.
I have a home, with air conditioning, to sit in and cry out my frustrations.
I have four sweet girls that I am BLESSED with that I am BLESSED to take care of.
Yeah, and that's just a teeny tiny list.
Counting my blessings, and trying not to let the "stuff" get me down. The "stuff" is part of life, and praising God that He can use the stuff to remind us of the sweet blessings in life.
What are YOUR blessings today?
