Max Calculating—a special blessing!

One of today's blessing is God's gift of Max. God made sure that Max is very aware of me. Max knows when my headache is bad & will simply sit quietly on my shoulder. If my pain level is high, Max will "talk" & do silly things to distract me & make me laugh.
Only God would think of giving me a little bird to remind me of God's constant love & care. God is so amazing!
On the days when I have a harder time creating a positive day, God sends His love and blessings to help me along.

Annual Blessings Celebration!

Each year near the anniversary of my back injury, I have a "Blessings Celebration". This year, I'm beginning my celebration a little early. Today, a friend and I are going to enjoy lunch and see a musical (more details to come).

As I was reading Psalms this morning, I thought these verses were perfect to begin my "Blessings Celebration"

Psalm 105:1-5 The Message (MSG)

    Hallelujah! Thank God! Pray to Him by name!
      Tell everyone you meet what He has done!
   Sing Him songs, belt out hymns,
      translate His wonders into music!
   Honor His holy name with Hallelujahs,
      you who seek God. Live a happy life!
   Keep your eyes open for God, watch for His works;
      be alert for signs of His presence.
   Remember the world of wonders He has made,

 His miracles, and the verdicts He's rendered. 
I'd like to challenge you to "keep your eyes open for God and watch for His works and be alert for signs of His presence". God is awesome!
In the next few weeks, I'll be posting some of the blessings God has given me over the past year. I'd like to hear about some of the blessings God has given you.
Creating a positive day
begins with thanking God and
praising Him for His goodness!
