Perspective

I normally write my blogs first thing in the morning. But the inspiration for this post struck me last night. Maybe you'll relate...

Here's what I was thinking:
You won't believe the night I've had!
- I had to drive my daughter to volleyball practice in the pouring rain.
- I waited over two hours while they ran drills and scrimmaged another team.
- I even typed up blog ideas on my husband's iPad just to kill time. (those are so awkward to type on)

But then God showed me:
You won't believe the night I had!
- My van ran perfectly all the way to Paige's volleyball practice. We traveled safe and sound.
- I got to watch her run drills and scrimmage another team. She gave her all for over two hours!
- I was even able to write out some blog ideas using my husband's iPad. (technology is amazing)

Every so often, we may need a little shift in perspective. We can get so caught up in the details of our everyday lives, that we fail to see the wonder in it. Some of our biggest burdens may actually be our greatest blessings.

Choosing to be blessed,

Jennifer

Thanks for this blog, Jennifer. It is always nice to be reminded that His perspective of what we're going through is often different and always better than our own. I pray to see things as He sees them.
Blessings,

Yes, God's been having to shift my perspective in a few areas. It's amazing how the joy and gratitude rush in when He we allow Him to do so!
