Nothing's Impossible

"For nothing is impossible with God" I read Luke 1 this morning and this is the scripture that stood out. I tell myself lots of things are impossible. I don't always say it in those words but I say it. "We are going to be late again","no one really likes me", "I can't make that", "Jack will never be potty trained", "I'll be this way forever", I could go on and on. Little negative things come out of my mouth all day long. Here is a list of things that ARE possible.

1. Jack will be potty trained one day.
2. My inner happiness will not be determined by the size of my jeans.
3. I can be a more spiritual person.
4. I will accept that people do like me.
5. We will have our own house someday.
6. I will learn to be more patient with the kids.
7. We will travel someday.
8. I will learn to not be so concerned with what others think of me.
9. I will learn to love exercise.
10. My kids will always be very close to John and I.

to myself all the time. this morning i went to buy some flowers and when i got home, i saw a lady who lives in the run down rental across the street. and i thought, kelly why not be grateful for what you have. she probably couldn't even think of buying herself a bunch of fresh flowers. thanks for making me see my blessings

have a great day

A good checking in with yourself. When you figure out how to love exercise, please share with me ~ sigh.

Echoing the above sentiments -- a great reminder & a great post. I was especially struck with the "we will own a house someday" because we're coincidentally experiencing torments over that in our life, too. Thanks for the positivity!!
