What Are You Thankful For?

What Are You Thankful For?

Each morning, I roll out of bed, stretch, and then I say, “Thank You, GOD, for giving me another day”.

“And here I am, we are, O GOD, our God giving thanks to you, praising your splendid Name”

1 Chronicles 29:13 MSG.

Being thankful helps me focus on the good things in my life.

Good things like my:

             hubby (who works extremely hard),

             parents (who are still alive and kicking),

♥             home (overlooking the Nottawasaga River),

♥             extended family (that includes you—my virtual friends), and . . .

GOOD THINGS LIKE TODAY

AFTER ALL, IT IS THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER. YAY!

 

Have a Happy Thankful Summer Day,

 

Tracy

 

P.S.  Tell me, tell me, what are you thankful for?

Finding Joy in Each New Day

Finding Joy in Each New Day

Linda Martin Andersen’s post, Look for Joy, ignited my joy spark.

She suggested starting a “Joy Journal”.

Pop on over to A Writer’s Playground and learn how to implement Linda’s three joyous tips.

Here are my three joy journal entries for today:

  • Found joy in exercising for twenty minutes,
  • Found joy in spending quiet time with my heavenly Father,
  • Found joy in preparing this short post.

There’s a Time to Be Still

There’s a Time to Be Still

Within weeks of launching the eBook edition of Calm Coloring: Faith, Hope & Love on Amazon, I lost the desire to draw another picture or write another word.

I soon realized I felt this way due to exhaustion. So this past month, I took the time to be still.

Slowly, inspiration kicked back in. I picked up a pencil and this design was born—Be Still.

Now begins the climb up a steep mountain (I call marketing).

This morning I was encouraged to start climbing after I read this verse in my trusty guidebook.

“Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am” Phil 4:14 (The Message).

I had a choice to make. A choice to change my mindset.

I’ve made my choice.

My new mindset will be . . .

#Marketing is about sharing one’s passion with others.

Since my passion is to share my writing, my art, and my love for God, that’s exactly what I’ll do.

The paperback edition of Calm Coloring: Faith, Hope & Love (Art & Soul Therapy for Kids-At-Heart) is now available on Amazon.

I must also tell you, there’s nothing quite like flipping through the pages of a real book.

Calm Coloring Books

Not to mention, this book makes a great gift for any and all occasions.

The other week, I put together packages like the one shown below.

A dear friend who had to move into a nursing home received one. And I gave another to my neighbor as a moving away gift. Others received these packages too.

CC Package

That’s it for today, so until next time . . .

Happy Heart Hugs & Coloring,

Tracy

P.S. Please help me climb this mountain and share with your friends. I can’t do this alone.
