Awakening to Gratitude
Today I was stirred by a beautiful song by Chris Tomlin, Awakening. It reminded me to let God wake me from the my distractions, business, and desires. I appreciate when a simple song can remind us that God needs to be our alarm clock. We should allow God a place by our bedside where he can speak into our ear the things and desires we have been sleeping through. In my case I tend to focus on the tasks at hand and the stresses in my life. I hear God telling me "wake up and see the good I have sprinkled into your life". I feel his hand turning me to face the good in my life when I want to curl up and face the corner of darkness behind me. This is my awakening.
Thank you God for:
-awakening to gratitude
-a great Father's Day Lunch with all four children that was void of tantrums, tears, and tension
-my newborn's gummy smile
-beautiful worship music that stirs
-Hannah's potty success (look mommy no diapers)
-awesome message from Brett Ullman (wow)
-reminding me that I am my children's first messenger of your love
-Cohen's sales talent
-a late night with friends, their spouses, and the best brownies ever
-a stress free High Tea
-Kiran's love for his siblings
-Your love for me
Join me and many others as Ann Voskamp reminds us to give thanks!
Join me at Blissfully Domestic today. My post is evidence (for my frommies- mommy friends) that I am committed to going green- one hue at a time. Today I will talk about my journey on the cloth diaper trail. I learned that going green benifits the pocket book as well as the environment. If you want a more detailed look at cloth diapers and want to check out my review of Wee Ones cloth diapers have a look at my new Check It Out page at this blog. Stay tuned for my reviews on some summer products distributed by Urban Bubbles.
