My cup is never empty (I always see beautiful)…

I am eternally optimistic.  Gratefully, it’s how I’m wired.  Happily, it seems I’ve passed it on to my son, who always finds joy in what he’s doing, including making his dinner, see? (Who knew dinner could wink at you?)

So, in the spirit of “it’s all good…” I’m reprinting PraiseBreak, originally published 6/27/11 because I’m having a good day. According to a very wise lady I know, Every day we have a choice. We can let others dictate the way we see beautiful in ourselves and the world or we can see the beauty we inherently possess…. That means they’re all good days.  Call it me giving y’all a reminder.  Go be happy.  There’s always something to smile about….and that is clearly evidence that God is good.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they shall possess the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice,
for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:3-12(NIV)

Woke up in the mornin' feelin' fresh to def! I'm so blessed.
~Jill Scott, The Light of the Sun

I have challenged myself to get a lot of new stuff done, and there will time to blog about it all soon enough.  Right now, however, it’s time for a PraiseBreak! No matter what’s been going on, no matter how I’ve handled it (well, or otherwise) I declare right here and now that I thank God for my blessings.  I am blessed.

I woke up this morning.  I was in my right mind.  I got dressed, and had clothes to wear.  I put on shoes.  I walked the dog.  I worshipped in the open air, appreciating the birdsong, the blue sky, Sando’s delight at simple things; dew on the grass, new smells, new sights.

I want a lot, but don’t need anything.  I have enough.  And it all came from God.  I am provided for.  Amply.  I am blessed.  And I am thankful, because each and every moment, each and every blessing is further evidence that God is Good.
