Amazing Grace.....

Good morning beautiful blogger fans...open your eyes and see the magnificent beauty around you today! 

Today's Tip: Yesterday when we visited the caverns they took us 180ft below the surface. It was amazing! But the most magnificent part of it was when we sat in complete darkness. It truly is indescribable until you actually experience it.  As we sat there I completely missed all the tour guide said because tears rolled down my cheeks as I thanked God for His Amazing Grace and silently sang the song, "Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once once was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see." Even now, I tried to sit with my eyes closed and it just doesn't compare. I tried to imagine what my blind friends feel and I couldn't, because I knew eventually I could open my eyes and see. I thanked God that I had my sight, my health, my life - period! Janet Jackson once said, "In complete darkness we are all the same." That is so true. Today, if you feel like you're in complete darkness just know if you have the ability to open your eyes and see then you have been touched by Amazing Grace! Give Him thanks! Take in the sights around you and appreciate all of the beauty - even if it's not the kind of beauty you'd hope for - open your eyes and find it! If you're not happy with where you are, take the appropriate and necessary steps to change your view! 


Today's Humor: Why is it that your nose runs but your feet smell? 😂

Today's Scripture: "You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light." (Psalm‬ ‭18:28‬)

Today's a gift! GO! Be the amazing person God designed you to be! NEVER let anyone or anything dull your light!! Today, Shine On!! Have a blessed day!! 

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! Do something kind today, be nice to others, and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

 "Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be! Have a blessed day! 

Blessings,
