So, we are all still so grateful that God answered prayer and flicked Hurricane Dorian out to sea instead of bringing it to us as they originally thought and told us. And my gratefulness to God (and our two days off due to said storm prediction God changed) cased me to want to fix up tell hallway to the bathroom kids’ rooms. This hadn’t been loved on since we moved in and I initially painted it. So, I removed the n popcorn from the ceiling and painted it white, painted the trim (door frames and baseboards) white, and am building an art project with my daughter to hang up that will brighten the space and clean it up. And now it is a bright, clean, cheerful hallway rather than a junky, creepy one. And all this was from renewed energy stemming from my gratefulness to God for not giving us another hurricane.
And I realized that gratefulness promotes good stewardship of what God blessed us with. When we are grateful for what God has given us we want to take care of those treasures and blessings. It is a beautiful thing.❤
