"Thoughts positive or negative, grow stronger when fertilized with constant repetition."
Come Before Winter, p. 239
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5

I choose to be happy this week no matter what situation arises and let every thought praise God for what He has provided. Here are some things/memories that make me happy (not in any particular order).

1. I LOVE makes me sooooo happy. we had a pink wedding :-)
2. coupons!
3. the seasons changing...especially spring and fall.
4. jeans and sweatshirts
5. chocolate
6. cheesecake
7. mexican food
8. taking pictures
9. babies!!! when they're sleeping and cuddle up right under your chin in your neck.
10. Julia's giggles
11. lazy days with my family.
12. daydreaming
13. having our car paid off!!!
14. seeing the face of my heavenly Father someday... what conversations will we have? how will I feel standing in His presence? what will heaven look like? makes me wonder...

Happy the rest of the week to you!

Ooh! I LOVE your list of things you are thankful for, that make you happy! So much more imaginative than the one I made earlier this month. In my devotions with Today in the Word (Moody Bible), this month is a reflection on giving thanks. They also had you make a list of things you weren't particularly thankful for. Then go over that list again to see how to give thanks to God for even those things. Ungratefulness is listed among the sins in 2 Tim. 3, along with people who love themselves, pride, arrogance, those who are heartless....
