March On

I've had this little song in my head all day. I am not sure where it is from, I have known it as far back as I can remember. I used to have all these little Bible song sing-a-long videos as a little girl, and it may be from one of those. But as Grant and I drove back to Baton Rouge from New Orleans this morning after a wonderful wonderful weekend with his parents, I couldn't help but sing it on this sunshine-y day. It goes like this:

It's a happy day, and I thank God for the weather
It's a happy day, and I'm living it for my Lord
It's a happy day, and things are gonna get better
Living each day by the promises of God's Word.

And that is all it is. But it is just so BEAUTIFUL today. Grant feels like the luckiest husband in the world today because I MADE him go play golf! As much as I love Sundays at home with the hubby, I also know that to pass up a "golf day" like this is a crime! Plus, I am also enjoying the E! True Hollywood Story on Renee Zelwegger and napping next to our little Moxie dog.

So here we are in March. (Can you believe it?) 2008 is moving on along at rapid speed. Grant mentioned today how blessed we are. I couldn't agree more. Just the fact that we can go buy groceries every week without sweating the bill is something we take for granted. Sure, we can't fly off to Europe on a whim and I can't buy this new Coach purse I've had my eye on, but the Lord provides food for us every week and we just swipe the debit card without blinking. I am going to make it a point this week to thank God for the "small stuff". I'll even thank him for these comfy gray lounge pants I am wearing. They are nothing short of a blessing.

I was giggling at how many comments I got about Jon & Kate Plus 8! It looks like I am not the only one who enjoys that show. Tomorrow night is the episode showing them skiing. I cannot imagine keeping up with all those kids on a mountain. I can't keep up with myself on a mountain!

I hope all my ladies have a blessed, blessed week. Thank God for the small stuff. And don't sweat the petty things. Also, don't pet the sweaty things. :)

Yeah...the weekend was beautiful!
The rain is coming and the colder air is right behind it....YUCK!!!

I'm thankful too for the little things that I take for granted more often than I should. Thank you for reminding me to be grateful for it all.

Have a great afternoon!
Blessings~

Hey Jen,

I love keeping up with you through your blog! It seems as though everything is going just right for you. :) I started a new blog since I got married, and just wanted to pass it along to you in case you were interested.

Take care!

Jen-n-nay,
That little-ditty of a song that you quoted was one we sang at Young Life (a lot!) But, we used to sing it at the beginning of Kid's Choir as a little warm-up before we got into the "meat of things." I haven't thought of that little ditty for a long time, so thanks for the "recollection" of a sweet, simple little "praise" song!
