Gratituesday- Things to come...

My little desk calendar at work has its own Gratituesday for today! It's a "Life's Little Instructions from the Bible" page-a-day calendar. On today's page it says:

"Show gratitude, if not for what you have now, then for all the goods things still ahead."

Wow! Sometimes I pray for things I want to happen in the future- like paying off bills, or hopefully, someday having children and getting to stay home with them. But I don't think I have ever said to GOD, "Thank you for my future blessings, whatever they might be..." But you know what? If I were fully trusting GOD to provide for me, now and in the future, I should be able to to say that- and mean it!!! I know I am going to have to work on this.

But today, I can also give thanks for those things which He has already provided- the most exciting for me today being that I am about to have my own website!!! YEA! Woo-Hoo! :-)

I am ironing out details, even as I am writing this. So please pray for me and this new adventure GOD has put into my life. Pray that it will be a blessing, not only for me, but for all who find their way to its pages. (And keep checking back here- I'll let you know when it's up & running- cause then all my blogging will be over there too!)

And I am also grateful to Laura and Char for all your encouragement ans advice and help with the details so far! I can't wait to get this going!!! :-)

But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." I Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)

Be sure to visit Laura at HeavenlyHomemakers to see what others are Gratituesday-ing about! :-)

Hm...being thankful for tomorrow's blessings. That makes so much sense...because we KNOW God is going to bless us tomorrow!

Good luck on that website! Keep it updated every week if you want your readers to keep coming back for the interesting stuff you post. Go for posting content with a little bit of humor. That usually reels in a lot of readers.
