Day 14

Some days, it is so easy to get stuck on ourselves and our agendas.  To get caught up in the doing….not the being.   Do you ever have days like that?   We may or may not have started our day with prayer and scripture. And before anyone knows it…we’ve replaced HIM with US.  {Day 14}  31 Extraordinary Days | Joy Day! | Psalm 92:1-2


When we have days like that, it is good to get ourselves realigned. To read verses like this one…


It is good to praise the Lord..
to proclaim your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night.
Psalm 92:1-2


That’s what we want to do here at An Extraordinary Day…


Proclaim God’s love and faithfulness!


Will you join me in counting blessings?  Let’s count just seven from the week.  It’s a good exercise…and a form of praise to our gracious Heavenly Father.

I’ll start with just seven from my week…

  1. A spectacular sunset
  2. A burst of creative energy
  3. A good night’s sleep
  4. A phone call from a friend
  5. New neighborhood connections
  6. The delivery of my old laptop…repaired…with all the photos intact
  7. The blessing of hosting out-of-town friends


Now it’s your turn.   Scroll down to “Please Share Your Thoughts” below.  I can’t wait to see God’s extraordinary love and faithfulness demonstrated in your life this past week!


Will you join me each day in October for… | 31 Extraordinary Days | October 2012
