Thankful, inspired, ready for another round!

Whew! What a couple of weeks it's been! I've been dragging lately. And I mean seriously d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g! Physically and emotionally I've just felt absolutely spent. Yesterday it hit me, "Where has my smile gone?". I could just feel my face clenched in a big old scowl. Not a pretty picture!

I knew that something needed to change, but honestly I felt a little stuck and I didn't know what to do! The Lord is so gracious though and is always faithful to bring us just what we need when we need it! Without going into great detail let me just say that I am abundantly thankful for:

The Word~ I am continually amazed at how the Bible speaks to me in all areas. The joy of the Lord truly is my strength!

Encouragement~Even from unexpected sources. People I've never even met in real life! For all of you who read my blog, you are an encouragement to me!

Inspiration~ I just found a new blog that I could spend about two months on and still not have gleaned enough from it! Check it out if you get the chance.http://proverbs14verse1.blogspot.com/

Today I feel a spring in my step, a smile on my face and a song in my heart. I know that this is prime time for the enemy to try and drag me down again, so please pray that I will keep my eyes fixed where they should be. I'm ready for life now!

I hear ya! Whatever the kick in the seat of the pants is, it is SO necessary sometimes. Glad you are back to smiling.

That picture is too funny!

I find it that the enemy is more succesful when he stikes when I'm hormonal (preggers, post-pardom, that time of the month) So rude :)

"The God of Peace will soon crush satan, yes God will crush him underneath His feet!"
