Thankful Thursday!

Sometimes life gets so busy that you forget to take a moment to reflect on your blessings. I feel that way more and more lately.

I have had to take a moment to myself and remember to thank God for all that I have. Most of the time I surprise myself by how much of the day has flown by before I take that moment. I have always said a prayer as I went to bed. I recently started adding a prayer when I wake up as part of that ritual. The part I have trouble with lately is to stop and pray throughout the day. Before I had prayed 10 or 15 times a day for all kinds of little things. Like for the people in the cars I pass on my way to the grocery store, or for the new girl at the register of fast food joint by hour house. She looks like she was having a bad day and there is a good chance I will never see her again since I don't often have the chance to eat out very often.

Sometimes my prayers go out for people I know and sometimes for people I don't, but the majority of my prayers are thankful prayers. I try to thank His as often as I can for His continual love and care he gives me. He has blessed me beyond belief. I have a home, a healthy family, food, and all the love I could ever need. Every day I find something to thank him for. Even if it's just to thank him for the rain or the way the bread I just made came out.

Today though, I am thankful that I can talk to Him and pray any time I want to. I am not limited to only at bed time or only at church. I can call on Him and praise Him literally any time I want. I have found my self in some odd places praying before. You will never believe how relaxing and in touch I feel with my Heavenly Father in the bath tub. I figured He made me this way, so why not have a conversation with Him in my bath. A big bonus is that in the bath tub or shower may be the only quite time I get to reflect on my day and send up my praise to the Father I love so much!
