One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD" (Psalm 150:6).

Another Monday... another day to be intentional about giving thanks. Sometimes we need to be purposeful in being grateful because it's so easy to be grumpy and to complain. Today I was reminded of this while I was listening to the song "We Want to Praise Jesus" sung by the Collingsworth Family.

"Sometimes I feel grumpy and I'm tempted to complain over something that's so silly and so small. But then I think of all the many things that Jesus does for me and I just have to smile and thank the Lord.
We want to praise Jesus for His many blessings. He's been so good to us. He supplies our every need above all we could ask or need so we've come to praise the Lord."

LOVE that photo of YOU!
Actually, I love all of them. You really are a great photographer!
Boogers? Seriously? :)
Yes, I agree, I don't know why it's called a "racer" either.
