Power of Praise

I'm walking up the (endless, it seems) 144 stairs to work (yes, I counted them!) wondering why the day is turning out not-so-great.

There's no reason for having a less-than-great day. It's sunny, it's summer, I have a great job, I have a great horse, a great family, a really pretty awesome life. And I don't mean that as cheesy--it's true! But

When it strikes me suddenly that this week, I've no longer been counting blessings.

Do five bullet points a day really make that big a difference?

So I begin right then--Thank You for the roses over there. For fresh green baby ivy shoots. For summer clouds. For foggy morning. 

For full-time work. Chance to serve principals from all over the country. Dew on grass blades. Purple spikey flowers...

And do you know (call it cheesy but it's true!), the day turns around!

Praising God really does seem to turn our feelings around! Love the photo- seems like a very calming spot! God bless~ Lisa :o)
