"This week, I am grateful for the two companies I have personally previously found reputable reaching out to me - and, voluntarily offering my readers an opportunity to benefit from the words I put on my screen." Two Community Outreach Specialists reached out to me, at different times, based on blog posts I have previously written. This is NOT a sponsored post, nor am I compensated at all from this post. But, it allows me to offer something for the gratitude I feel for my readers. A free holiday gift to my readers, if you will. For what were you grateful for this past week?
"Did you know that sex, drugs, nudity, death, and negativity sell? They sell air time on the television, they sell space in the news, and they provide society with supposedly the understanding of the way of the world. You know what doesn't sell? Light. Love. Beauty." This week's Gratitude Project includes a call to action. I hope you will join in and share the message to those you know!
In light of all the darkness and tragedy making headlines in this world this week, The Gratitude Project is a *little* heavy... but, I share what I am grateful for this week. What about you? What are you grateful for this week?
CWBN topic this month is "How my faith helps me worry less." At that moment, I knew I needed to share my favorite prayer (all 5 words), and the devotion coming up the first Sunday after Easter EVERY year - which happens to be this Sunday!
We all have our own agony in the garden - where the pain is so deep and so intense, we may be tempted to abandon God altogether. It is in those moments we can look to Jesus Christ's example, and utter the words, "...yet, not my will but yours be done."
