Thankful Thursday: Blogger’s edition #3

I waited with bated breath as my sister shakes the bag, then puts her hand inside it and swish the pieces of paper around a little. Finally, she withdraws her hand and opens the piece of paper to reveal the blog that I’m grateful for today:

Thankful Thursday: Blogger’s edition #1

It’s Thursday! And this is the Thursday that I’m going to start showing my appreciation for the blogs that I follow like I said I wanted to do last month. To recap: I wrote down all of the names of the blogs that I follow on pieces of paper, put them into a bag, shake it up and had my sister choose. 

So today, I’m grateful for…

I just caught up with Akhila over on Words and Notion. I’m guilty of not keeping up with her blog for the Reader is kind of messed up and all the blogs I follow doesn’t always show up. 

Akhila is a Quality Assurance professional and she makes words dance off the page with her thought-provoking poems. I find her Psychic Science posts intriguing and her Female Behavior series convincing.

Post Alert!| I am not always right

She sometimes features posts in her native Malayalam, a language I which I can understand! She has a book out now and it’s available on Amazon.

I have some more catching up to do, but I am thankful for this blog.

Journal entry #7: 2017… MERCI BEAUCOUP!

 :

31st December 2017

We’ve come to the end of a tremendous year and I thank God for bringing me through it.

While 2017 had its ups and downs, I chose to focus on the positive. I picked back up a few skills I had neglected (except art), started studying a new language, read multiple genres in books, and met my new best friend Margaret from The Word.

One of my favorite highlights of the year was celebrating my birthday in the company of friends. ❤

Another delightful highlight was Tammy joining this warm and welcoming blogging community. ❤

Personal wise, there were some issues I had to deal with, but God saw me through all of them every time. I have those days where I struggle, but His Word is my strength and I can always depend on it.

Thank you, God, for 2017! It’s been a blessing and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me.

Thankful for you (coming soon)

I follow some pretty amazing blogs and I want to show how much I appreciate all of the unique bloggers who light up my face on a weekly basis. 

It’ll take me some time to jot down the names of all the blogs I follow, then I’m going to put the names in a bag, shake it up, randomly select a name, and thank the blogger every other week or so. 

In the meantime, keep up the wonderful blogging. 

Positive Monday

Positive Monday: take it not for granted

 :

Good morning everyone! Well, it’s afternoon now. I’ve been trying to get this post up all morning, but it didn’t work out. Anyway…

Yes, today is the day that you should’ve woken up and go…

Being alive is a wonderful gift because every day that we get to breathe is an opportunity to get closer to our Lord and Maker and…

Don’t ever take being alive for granted. Each and every one of us is fighting a battle out here, but being alive is certainly a blessing. You should always have this mindset whenever you greet the day and people.

And never forget to thank Him for equipping you with the strength that you needed to get through another day. 

Enjoy the rest of your Monday.

Inspiration & Words

Thankful Thursday: World Gratitude Day!

Be grateful for every new dawn.

It’s easy to focus on the things that we don’t have and complain about it, instead of being thankful and content with the things that we do have.

I know I always say this, but I am thankful for life; that I am breathing because I did not have to wake up this morning. I am grateful for life’s little moments because with everything going on in the world right now, life is fleeting. I am grateful for my family, my friends, and my co-workers. I am eternally grateful for our Savior. My sister just brought me a small token and I am very grateful for it. ❤

Gratitude improves our lives and that’s why we should be grateful for every living moment. For me, every day is World Gratitude Day!

Let’s talk… God!

Hello, everyone! As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post this month, I’ve been working on an interactive series for the blog. We’re not going to get into personal details about our lives. We’ll be chatting about various topics as the weeks go by, but today, I want to welcome you to ‘The Brew’. 🙂

Today, I just want to express how thankful I am to God. He has provided me with shelter, a family (although we have our ‘moments’), loving friends, a job, and life. I am thankful for waking up this morning and I am also thankful for the writing passion that He has blessed me with. He has been a driving force in my life and I love feeling His presence as I go about the day’s work.

Thank you, God. ❤

What are you guys thankful to God for?
