On a scale of 1 – 10, I am about an 8 when it comes to being brave. There are plenty of new things I will taste and try to do but I draw a firm line on a few things.

Now that I think about it, maybe I am only a 6 or 7 on the “Brave Scale”. 

It is so hard to judge what is being brave, being stupid, or simply dealing with the stuff that happens in life. You know some unbelievable things can happen — both good and bad.

As we embarked on this trip, we mostly knew what we were getting into. So far, things have gone very well but it isn’t over yet. I am celebrating the “so far” and hoping what is to come is fine too. I am careful not to stress about tomorrow because today has enough trouble if its own. I love the truth of this verse!

My hope is that I can be content with where I am and with what I have been provided for each day — both in the blessings and the troubles.

It is important to be thankful in each day!

Are you in a difficult chapter in life? Try to train yourself to give thanks for at least the smallest, most simple things. As you practice looking for the good things you will see it is like a hunt for a treasure, especially during hard times. Looking for the blessings is a great distraction from the challenges and helps me to focus on the good that is around me.

God’s goodness is always around me.

Heavenly Father ~ please give me the eyes to see Your gifts of beauty and blessings all around me!

On the Road,
