Five Minute Friday: Grateful

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa Jo posts here.
No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.



The days that you feel empty, hollow, poured out, tired, and exhausted.
When you think the remedy would be an entire day or even an hour just to yourself with no interruptions.
When you know that there's no way that is actually a possibility.

On those days...He has made a way for us to be full.  

To give thanks.
To be grateful.
To be full of gratitude.

He in all of His infinite wisdom - gave us such a simple, although at times difficult, way to fill up on those days that our souls ache to feel full.

To breathe in His goodness.
To exhale His praises.

It will at times truly feel like a SACRIFICE of thanks but it will fill you up.
You will begin to see how FULL He has made your day with His goodness.

Be Filled.
Be Grateful.
