Choosing life, joy and thankfulness!

My heart feels alive today! Realizing it is something I have to choose each day and life abundantly, I have to choose joy, and I have to choose thankfulness. This isn't always easy for me, I have always struggled with being negative and kind a down, still asking the Lord where this all stems from. I've received a lot of break through in this area in the last months with praying and asking the Lord to help me in this area and having my husband and others stand in agreement with me in prayer and calling me on it when I start speaking negative etc. So I've been trying to not focus on everything that sucks or that is hard in my life but focus on all the blessing the Lord has given me in the natural and spiritual, when I want to say how hard something is instead finding something good about that situation.

Here's some verses to ponder...
Psalm 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

I pray the Lord will encounter you all with his love and joy today! Be blessed today!

Well Hello! Sorry it has been so long, haven't been keeping up with the blogging much these days. Just thought I'd say a quick hi, the kids are starting to wake up from their naps. The girls share a room and it so sweet when the wake up the talk and giggle, it makes my heart happy! Samuel has a big boy bed now and he loves it and plays in his room as well, thank you Lord! Things are going well, getting into a routine here. Spring has arrived so that sure helps. We can go for walks, go to the park, let the kids run outside, what a blessing! Trinity turned 2 this week, and Esther will be one next month, and no we are not pregnant yet. Yes we still want a lot of children! It has been kind of nice for my body to have a little break and I'm sure it's been nice for Tom too(I'm a little emotional, to say the least, when I'm pregnant). Hmmm... what else, hearts a good, God has been sifting through a lot but it is only making me stronger and causing me to Trust Him and love Him even more. So that's the quick version of what is going on and here's some pics, was trying to post more but having issues, oh well her ya go!
