Beatitude Attitude {vol. 5}: Begrudgingly Grateful

Sorry to be a little delayed in posting this Tuesday. We got going this morning and I realized I never scheduled a post! This weekly feature is starting to really prove its purpose. Today has overall been a day where I am writing "blessed am I" rather begrudgingly. I'm honestly struggling to come up with my seven. That's really the point of the exercise, though, isn't it? I look at moments and it seems nothing in the world is going right. God sees those moments and says, "I AM. I am with you. I will make beauty out of this, especially since it's not as bad as you think it is." It really isn't. Here it goes...

1) Blessed am I that in what seems to be the slowest moving traffic ever, God reminds me that He is the author of time and is in complete control.

2) Blessed am I that God gives me moments in my life that will be fodder for laughter later on.

3) Blessed am I with the ability and time to make lasting memories with my littles.

4) Blessed am I with joyful children, who remind me what it is to be amazed in the little things.

5) Blessed am I in the noise, when God reminds me how valuable silence is.

6) Blessed am I in the silence, when God teaches me how to find peace.

7) Blessed am I that the Hubbers takes the kids on a walk so I can step back and be thankful!

Bonus - Blessed am I that there is chocolate in the house and I am not allergic to it!

And there you have it - this week's edition of the Beatitude Attitude! When I finally sit down to count my blessings, it turns out I have more difficulty stopping at seven. Who'd have guessed?

Please join in so we can see what beautiful things are blessing your lives this week!

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Rest assured I do read each and every word, but please forgive me if I don't get back to you right away. The toddler tugging on my leg and the one year old pulling my hair may have seized control of my typing abilities. Blessings on your day!
