Something Good Is Happening To Me!!


Purchased from skyessoycandles.com

Everyday I love to light one of my soy candles. I usually have to ask Hubby or Princess Charlie to light it for me, because with my little hand I can not light a match or lighter (good thing I never smoked). We have those lighters you use to light candles or grills. You know the ones with the child proof lock on them? Now many times I have seen Hubby or Princess Charlie use both hands to light this contraption.

Well, yesterday morning hubby lit my candle for me before he left for work. I laughed out loud at a video and blew out my candle!! I looked at the candle, then the lighter and thought "I can do this." I grabbed the lighter and positioned it as best I could and I DID IT!!!!! I LIT MY CANDLE ON MY OWN!!!!

To so many this will mean NOTHING, but for me it means The World. Nothing and NO One but God allowed me to do this!! I have tried soooo many times only to get frustrated and discouraged. I cried out and Thanked God! And as I type this I cry, because I am so very grateful. The many things you can do with two hands I have to do with One and most times it's a HUGE challenge. Lighting that candle made me feel so loved and surrounded by His favor!!

Thank You!! Thank You Heavenly Father!!!

Today I Am So Very Grateful:
For My One Hand
For His Guidance
The Freedom To Express My Love and Loyalty To God
For Unexpected Blessings
My Family
Strength
Peace

  5. Little things like that only mean something to you and God and I've been there. Some of the things He does for us, others wouldn't understand, but to us, it's MIRACULOUS!! God is good and it's amazing to me that he actually cares about those small things that mean so much to me!

  6. I'm so glad, God blessed you with this moment of encouragement. I am sure people like me who do not have to worry about these "little" things could never understand how big it is to you. May God keep blessing you. Have a great day.

  9. I found your blog through Audra Krell. As you say, gratitude is an uplifting experience. A person evolves based on what he chooses to experience. The truth is felt. It is all joy.
