Happiness Tip: Count Your Blessings Not Your Sorrows

Secret to happiness

Happiness Tip: Count your blessings not your sorrows

As the leaves change color, I’m getting excited for one of my favorite upcoming holiday celebrations– Thanksgiving! Not so much because of the food and fellowship, (although those are awesome!), but because of the focus on gratitude. There’s something about being thankful and counting my blessings that makes me happy. Not just smiley happy, but really happy, deep inside. Praying you’ll experience greater joy today as you lift your heart to God.

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 107:1).

Today is a new day filled with things to be thankful for. But if you’re feeling a tad blue, you may be tempted to go through your day and count your sorrows, and forget to count your blessings. Been there, done that, as I’m sure we all have. The result is often a troubled heart. Thankfully, there’s an awesome antidote to chase away the blues— counting our blessings.

A Beautiful Pet Blessing

Our pets depend on us for all their needs, and when they become ill, it can become all-consuming. Thankfully we can turn to God for help.

Just last week I was asking God to heal my precious doggie. The vet didn’t know what was wrong with him. I continued to pray and trust God. Yesterday, I saw signs of improvement— praise the Lord!

Sometimes the help comes right away, other times we wait. There are also times healing happens across rainbows bridge. Either way, prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have to help us get through tough times. It’s our life line to God. For pet owners, prayer is a huge comfort because we know that God cares for our pets and understands how important they are to us.

Join with me in praying for our beloved pets. . .

Happiness Tip: Start Each Day with Gratitude

Start each day with a grateful heart!

Happiness Tip— Start each day with a grateful heart!

Keeping an attitude of gratitude is one of the most powerful things we can do to move towards a truly happy life. Life doesn’t have to “feel” perfect to be grateful. There’s lots to be thankful for, if we look carefully.
Give thanks to God for big things, little things, even seemingly insignificant things. They all matter! Don’t let the hustle and bustle of life, or the heartache, keep you from pausing to give thanks.
God wants you to experience the joy and blessings of a grateful heart. Why wait to give thanks? Start right now, and continue giving thanks throughout the day. God is good all the time, and worthy of our praise.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 107:1

Pawz & Pray Book Review

“Leila’s book has been a true inspiration to me. It makes you focus on what’s really important in life. The author gives us great examples on how we can have a closer walk with God by following the lead that our pets give us in their everyday life. “Pawz & Pray” encourages us to put our worry and anxiety aside and take time to enjoy the things God has put right in front of us. This book has touched my heart in an indescribable way. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves animals and wants to have a closer connection to our Heavenly Father.”
