It's the Little Things

It's so easy to become discontent in today's world. With the economy the way it is, with the unemployment rate sky high, and with money tighter than normal, it's hard to not worry and become anxious about the state of our finances.

But God reminds us in Philippians 4:16 to

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

So I've decided to work to consciously be happy and content in all that I have.

Because truly, I AM blessed!!

So for the next 30 days I'm going to take and post a picture of something that makes me happy each day. It could be some bargain I've purchased, it could be something I've made, it could be something I have been given, or it could just be something I see that makes me happy. It will just be a reminder to me to be thankful for everything- even the little things that God has blessed me with.

Day 1

This is a picture of what Belle looks like every evening as we eat dinner.

She sits on the bench at our table and lays her head down-

staring intently at each of us as we eat.

It is so stinkin' cute and so stinkin' pitiful!

(Of course this sweet face usually gets some sort of treat from the table before each meal is over! )


  1. I can see why that brightens your day. What a precious face!

  2. Today I could have posted a picture of a route 44 diet coke with lime~

  3. Cute picture!

    You are always an inspiration!!! Thanks

  4. i so need to do this too. sometimes the blessings in our life are surpassed by the craziness and "life" that happens.

  5. What beautiful eyes and a precious spirit! I am eager to see all the simple things that make you see God is providing for you :)

  6. What a cute face, bet it works every time to get a treat!

  7. What a wonderful idea. I think that we should all strive to be happy with our blessings. Thanks for reminding me.

  8. Since we all know I've never been able to keep up with my Daily Blessing page, I've toyed with the idea of doing just this... posting a pic in place of writing it out. I may still do it yet - now it'll look like I'm a copy cat. ;o) Which I am. :o)
