Live in the good

"Live in the good" by Deanna Bartalini (CatholicMom.com)

Is there ever a day without hiccups?
I think not.
It’s when we dwell on the rough spots that we forget
All the good.

Dwell instead on the
Guy who held the door for you
Lunch with a friend
Conversation that makes you think

Think about
Folded laundry
Food in the refrigerator
Water to drink

Look forward to
Relaxing on the weekend
Wine to share
Hands to hold

And remember
God loves you more than you can possibly imagine
You are his
He wants your good

Hiccups will pass
The road will smooth
Breathe deeply
Live in the good

Ponder & Pray: When it’s hard to focus on the good in your day, stop and look around. See the good and thank God for all he has given you.

NB: This is part of a series of posts on gratitude on my blog.
