I try to remember to be grateful, but sometimes I get caught up in the day to day dealings that I lose sight of the beauty and blessing we are inundated with daily. I think it begins with my attitude in the morning. I need to focus upon awakening on the majesty of God. Oftentimes I am not in that space automatically, so it's a matter of getting myself into that zone, so to speak, and allowing the Spirit to calm me and envelop me, and energize me for the coming day.
Sometimes I'm such a putz I just go on blindly into the day in a reactive mode. I'm here to tell you that most certainly doesn't do it for me. I want a new and living way.
