I’ve been intentionally focused on giving thanks this year. Not that I haven’t been before, but for a time, I allowed circumstances to cloud my vision of all of the beauty surrounding my life. Now, I am intentionally seeking it out. Giving thanks is a muscle that must be exercised daily if we are to grow a heart of gratitude. #write31days #FMFW #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet

But I’ve been asking the Lord to open my eyes so that I can fully see the beauty that is right in front of me.Open my eyes, Lord, that I might see the beauty all around me. #write31days #FMFW #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet

In doing so, I realize how truly blessed I am and how rich my life is with the beauty of Christ.In giving thanks for the little things, I realize how rich my life is with the beauty of Christ. #write31days #FMFW #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
