Mondays are always the busiest for me. It's the day I do the most laundry, the most cleaning, and it's the most tired-est of the week. It's usually a day spent cleaning up after the busy weekend. It was a weekend where we were all home! I was so thankful. Saturday we spent the latter half of the day grocery shopping, which I am also thankful we were able to do since I felt we were out of mostly everything we needed! and Sunday was just a really nice day. We had a great day at church, reminded of all the great things that happened this week from prayers that were answered. But we also all took a short nap, ate a nice supper, and enjoyed watching the Olympics.
Tonight as I reflected on the past week, my heart began to fill with such gladness. I opened up my bible, ready to read praises to our God, when i opened up Psalm 108. It says: "My heart is steadfast, O God. I will sing and make music with all my soul."
How perfect. I felt truly thankful and praised God with all my heart. I began writing down in my prayer journal the prayers that got answered and the ones I had for this week. Then I began to write down what I could do that could be serving to others. Tomorrow I am bringing a meal to a family who needs it and that also brings me much joy. It is great that when you have a goal to be intentional about things, God just gives you opportunities to be useful in. What a blessed life.
