Through the years I have used journals to write my thoughts, words, and ideas. I have written scriptures that meant something special to me and prayers to help me. Perhaps you do to. I have kept these journals through the years.
One I have always been able to entertain myself, even as a child, so when they told us we would have to stay home...that didn't frighten me. I am quite content to work on the computer–writing, and love to read. So I knew I would not have any problems. Plus my husband was here, and we love being together. So no problem. But after part of March, all of April and all of May, I confess, I would like to get out and see some friends and fortunately, for us, we were able to visit our kids two weeks ago, as they too were at their home.
Being grateful is something we must decide to be. I try to always thank God for my blessings first before I tell Him what my needs are. I find that if I start off praising and thanking Him, by the time I get around to telling Him what I need, I find my need is more specific. By then, a scripture comes to mind concerning what I need. Not to say a scripture always comes to mind, but a lot of the times it does.
