I have to admit that this is the first time I have had to sit and think a bit before my gratitude post.We have all been under the weather this weekend and it has really dampened my mood. So, for a little inspiration I went to my Scripture verses for every day of the year calendar and guess what today's verse just happened to be?
Isnt' everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God?...You already have all you need. I Corinthians 4:7-8
Can't really think of a better way to say it than that. Divine intervention?
Lord, I do have all that I need and more. Today I am especially thankful for;
