It has been my practice when I start to have a pity party that I try to focus on the things I should be thankful for in my life. This past weekend I was beyond blessed to have a day to myself. I was a little bummed that I was not able to go and have a girls weekend so I started doing my usual routine of cleaning, laundry etc..
After a while I just needed to get out of the house so I headed to the grocery store. First of all I don't like shopping (unless it is a bookstore) for anything but it is a necessity of life. After getting the grocery business out of the way I stopped at our Second Chance emporium and was blessed with paperback books at 10 for $1.00! Woohoo! Jackpot for this girl right here.
After that amazing find I decided to stop at a few shops in town that just opened up. No luck there but I remembered a little antique store I had not been to yet.
I walked in the door and was greeted by a wonderful lady full of love for the Lord. She and I had such a wonderful conversation talking about the things of God and how great He is! The time passed by so quickly!
Just the boost I needed and I knew the Lord had planned out the day just for me. Now when I feel my pity party coming on I can remember this day and know blues won't last long.
What are you thankful for this week?
