This life…it holds so many choices. – Including the choice of how we will choose to view our life. Will we see only the holes and shattered dreams broken around our feet, or will we use those holes to see past ourselves and into the wonder of God’s great glory? Will we walk past the beautiful sunsets, unable to see past the thoughts in our own heads? Will we ignore the gift of a beautiful bloom or a hug at the very right moment? Will we see the gifts that have been set in our lives just for us? Will we fail to notice our God who loves us so compassionately that He continues to pursue us, no matter how often we fall or turn away?
Life is simply a series of tiny moments.
We either cherish them or take them for granted.
So, here’s the beginning of my list…the things I’m grateful for, the things that make me smile. These are the things I cherish.
1. Dressing up with my girls and twirling around like the princesses we are.
2. Snow days with my family and watching their delightful expressions as they build forts and catch snowflakes on their tongues.
