What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Yesterday, I got this Message from God through Facebook. He wanted me to know that "if you're feeling stressed, take care of your body. Breathe, stretch, move, get a massage. Your body will thank you and your spirit will feel renewed. God wants us to take care of body, mind, and spirit."

We all know that God works in mysterious ways. Well, He also send his message in mysterious ways ... we just need to open our heart and mind. Indeed the message was timely. Of late I was growing a little stressed out with my assignments while missing out on the routines that I love and enjoy. $$$ shouldn't have to be prioritized ahead our mental and physical health ... $$$ is essential but we need to strike a balance and moderation in order to enjoy every moment in our life and yet remain purposeful and $$$ fruitful.  Since I had some personal errands to run yesterday, I was happy to take the day off from my writing assignments. I did not touch my notebook for the most part of yesterday and as I rise in the morning today;

• I am so grateful for the Message from God!
• I am so grateful for that much deserved break!
• I am so grateful I am recharged!
• I am so grateful that my mind is refreshed!

Many verses in the Bible teach us to be thankful, regardless of circumstances. No matter how unpleasant a situation becomes, it is good to remember that it could always be worse. The more thankful we are, the more there is to be thankful for. Better to stop and take into consideration what and who is truly valuable in one's life. There is always something to be thankful for.

“Better a handful with quietness than both hands full, together with toil and grasping for the wind.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:6
