Bless My Friends.....

The optimist keeps his eye on the doughnut, but the pessimist  sees only the hole!



It was Sam's morning to fix breakfast.....

and..... 

Dough-nuts it was!

The kids are always full of energy when they eat their "Pop's"
breakfast.....Hmmmmm, I can't imagine why.

*****

Do you allow yourself the privilege of living one day at a time?  Or, do you begin your week with stress and worries about things happening at the end of the week or the up-coming weekend?

I am one that prefers to have detailed plans, made in advance.  I keep a calendar and I am Always  writing on a notepad....of some kind.  Constantly taking Notes!

While, I think it's important to make plans, I must remember that TODAY is my blessing, my gift from God......When I open my eyes in the morning, I have to realize that this is the only day that I'm guaranteed to see.  

God richly blesses me by allowing ME to choose what my day will be like.  Will I give in to the worries about tomorrow, or will I rejoice in the music of today?

I saw a commercial the other day that had something to do with weight...I really wasn't paying close attention to it, but I did see the part where bags that weighed 10 pounds each were being dropped off as the people walked.  With each 
mile, their load was drastically reduced and therefore, they felt lighter and more free.  Each mile got easier and easier for them to walk.

The same holds true for our daily living......If we allow ourselves to tote around the burdens of yesterday, or the worries that we anticipate for the week ahead, then we find that we can barely move.  We are weighted down!!

We need to give the burdens of yesterday, to GOD.  God longs to carry these for us.   We must also NOT  pick up the burdens of the days to come.  We are not to be anxious about anything, and we need to rejoice in the things that are present.

Speaking of today.....let laughter reign and wait with anticipation for your piece of chocolate!

Bless my friends....one day at a time Lord...

So, can I come to your house when your husband makes breakfast? Yesterday we had a Krispy kreme which is a big deal, as they don't have them here in Canada, (at least not near us) but our Costco had a travelling booth that sold them...Yum! Thanks for your words of inspiration!

I am usually not too stressed about what lies ahead,this is not to say that I am always worry free.Thanks for sharing your thoughts so freely.

I think we often don't appreciate the moment we are living in!

I don't know how you remain so positive each day, but I admire it. Awhile back my older son was in trouble (again) and I remember lamenting to his dad that it was all my fault why he had turned out the way he did. He told me "put down that bag of rocks". I'll never forget that. Sometimes I drop off the bag, but usually find it again depending on the journey. I'm still a work in progress. Hope your week is blessed!

I make lists but they are usually lists of things I don't want to forget. I don't like to plan too far ahead, preferring to take things one day at a time.
Have a great week!

I'm about as organized as a whirlwind! :D Your message today was timely and good. Not to be eaten with those doughnuts! :D I must admit I have trouble shedding my burdens, even tho I realize I cannot control things. A constant effort on my part; to relax! Thanks friend, and thanks for your comment on my posts!

Great post, Shug! I worry about every little thing, things that never end up happening. This post is good advice. Sieze the moment!

I am always planning ahead. I do like to try and enjoy each day and let our plans change as our Lord see fit to do. I hope you have a great day.

Now THAT is my kind of breakfast! YUM.

I'm a planner and organizer but I'd like to think I do live in the moment-- especially as I get older. I check my calendar and keep a million notes so I don't forget things but I make a point to take time to smell the roses as they say.

Hope you're having a wonderful day. xo jj
