It's good to be alive! I truly appreciate all of you for praying for me during this week's bout of sinusitis. I laid in bed most of the week due to a headache, sore throat, fever, achy body and all the other extras that go along with not feeling well...I am truly thankful to God to be back to work; feeling wonderful and ready to see everyone on Sunday! 

This past Sunday's message encouraged us to: 

  1. Record Our Blessings.
  2. Say Our Blessings Out Loud.
  3. Share Our Blessings With Others.

I haven't made much effort in living these three elements of praise out the first half of the week, but hope to do a better job the last half of the week. Let me encourage you to pick up a pen and piece of paper and write down at least ten blessings today that you can express your thanks and praise to God.  

Don't stop there! Go ahead and speak those blessings to God; giving thanks to Him for all of the wonderful things He has done! 

Then, go ahead and finish the last point…Share Your blessings with others. Do as the Psalmist said in Psalm 138:1-2, "I will praise You with my whole heart; Before the gods I will sing praises to You. 2  I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your loving kindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name." (NKJV)

Keep Looking up!
