Blessings

I think it's amazing how blessed God can make me feel even in the midst of a trial. When I choose to get my mind off of the hard things in life and focus on the good I am overwhelmed with what God has given me! I think during the hard times the sweet things seem even sweeter.

Us girls on our yearly trip to the beach! I don't have a recent picture of my mom,
but she is one of the amazing people in my family that I am so thankful for!
 My family is so thoughtful! When I need someone to talk to they listen. When I need someone to have fun with they jump in! When I need to relax and de-stress they give me a foot massage : )

 
God knows just what I need. He has put people in my life who encourage me and keep me accountable in my walk with God and can relate with what I'm going through. I am seeing more and more every day what a blessing good relationships are. It is a blessing not just to receive love and encouragement in the Lord, but also to give it.
 
"Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:"
1 Peter 1:22
