Counting my Blessings

This year I am attempting to live a more grateful life. Attempting is the right word, because I know by default my heart is desperately wicked, selfish even, by nature. I want others to be impressed by me, to be drawn to my life, to care about MY needs... See how self centered? So easy to be that way... but when I am still and view myself as God does, the grace that fills my soul, the wretch that I know I am in comparison to such glory. I say that, not to be self deprecating, but in a voice of awe, that He wanted me. Redeemed me. Forgives my daily stumbles. Blesses me even. So with His help I want to look at life with new perspective. Living fully where I am. Noticing the blessings, seeing the opportunities to glorify Him. Bear with me, as I strive, in my simple-minded way, to recognize each gift I have been given... and to share them.
