Today was Day 10 (I skipped yesterday because I was home sick and decided not to write) of the Happiness Project. Click here to find out more about the Happiness project. Three thankful items:
1. My Pretty Blogger Gift
See my post about this here. I did a Blogger gift exchange. It was super fun and I got a wonderful gift from Stephanie at A Blessed Home!
2. A Fall Morning
I woke up this morning, and it was 60 degrees outside. It was so refreshing. It really is starting to feel like fall (at least in the mornings). I really love it. It makes me excited for the holidays. I wish I was in TN right now though. I could see the trees change etc. But, in an attempt to live in the present… I am excited for the weather here, today, in Houston.
3. Alzheimer’s Walk Tomorrow
I really have something to look forward to today. Tomorrow is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s tomorrow. I am super excited. I have my purple shirt ready and the names people sent me written on the back of the shirt. I am super eager to get walking. The weather also has been nice, so I am looking forward to a nice cool morning tomorrow! (Don't forget these posts are on a delay! Blog post coming soon on how the Alzheimer's walk went!)
No, but I haven’t been feeling well either. That isn’t really a great excuse but it is something to consider. I have lost a few pounds though which is motivating me to get back out there.
I spent some time studying God’s word. Today’s lesson was contentment. It really couldn’t come at a better time. After the bad news from the last couple days, I have become very frustrated with my “present”. My future isn’t what I want it to be either. Anyway, being content was clearly the message. I read some verses as part of the lesson that were encouraging though. It was just God’s reminder to me, to continue to trust in Him:
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts,
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”
Random Act of Kindness:
Erg.. I was bad here.. and I failed.
Day 10 down, 20 days to go!
