From Above

“Every good and perfect gift is from above.”– that is a phrase said a lot but, in my opinion, not truly embraced enough. Everything that is good and that makes you happy is a gift from God, not from man. At times it is easy to take for granted a lot of the blessings we receive on a day to day basis. This September I worked hard on not taking even the little gifts from God for granted. So, in honor of our awesome God that persists in loving us and making us happy, I decided to document good and perfect gifts in my life that come from above. Throughout September I have been keeping a log of one thing a day I am thankful for. Here it is!

I am thankful for…

9/1- the taste of black coffee

9/2- random conversations initiated by my dad about the weird news stories from across the country that he loves to keep up with.

9/3- not feeling too hot/ too cold outside in leggings and a t-shirt

9/4- spontaneous staycations

9/5- the fact that my friends are willing to cooperate and pose when I want to take cute pictures of them

9/6- optimism from my friends when I am not having a good day

Here’s to another month full of little blessings, joys, and gifts from God.
