Everyday Blessings

Beautiful pink spring blossoms here in Dallas where we are visiting our daughter & family!

"Rest in My Presence, allowing Me to take charge of this day ... walk purposefully with Me, letting Me direct your course one step at a time ~

Thank Me for each blessing along the way; 
this brings Joy to both you and Me. 
A grateful heart protects you from negative thinking. 
Thankfulness enables you to see
 the abundance I shower upon you daily. 
Your prayers and petitions 
are winged into heaven's throne room 
when they are permeated with thanksgiving."
 (Jesus Calling)
