Sunrise behind shed

Our Daily Blessings! (:

Hello and welcome to Friday! I hope that ya’ll have had a great week so far! This week and weekend have felt really busy, but there were still blessings amid the crazy! Let’s get started shall we?

1) Sunshine and Rain

Sunshine and rainIt’s been fairly rainy and generally icky outside this week but, you want to know something interesting? I’ve noticed a few times that  suddenly it will start raining while the sun is still shining! I’ve tried to get a few pictures…but they haven’t come out the best.

I find the whole thing fascinating. Usually when we think of rain, we think of dark skies. I think it’s neat that the sun will shine despite the rain. It reminds me that even on those dark hard days of life,  those days that just aren’t going right; that God is in control. Even when it doesn’t look or feel like it He’s still there and still loving us. Despite our sin and the rain falling from our sky.

2) Enjoying waking up earlier

Sunrise behind shedI don’t know about you, but I’m finding that I do enjoy getting up earlier. Due to everyone’s schedule we are now getting up somewhere between 5:00 and 5:45 most weekdays. Now, I still look forward to those days of sleeping in until I wake up but as I get older I’m finding that they are starting to become few and far between. But that’s okay. One of the things that I am enjoying about this is the fact that I can get so much more done in a day! I don’t feel like I’m scrambling as much as I used to and I can stay caught up on the chores a little easier! (:

3)  My Blogging Buddies!

When I first started blogging I felt like I was in my own little world. Blogging about something that I felt needed to be shared and was blazing a trail all my own. As I’ve continued on this journey I’m beginning to realize that I’m not alone. Not only is God providing and leading me (very, very patiently) but He’s also provided me a community. I’m now part of a great Facebook Group that is SO helpful…Literally I rarely have to wait more than 24 hours for a response on a question/concern. I also have friends that help keep me accountable and provide encouragement just when I need it. And often times they’re a few special readers that remind me often to keep on keeping on…I just want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who have supported me! (:

What are some of the blessings that you have noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share about them in the comments below! Have a great weekend!

Until next time,
