Word Verification

Just like everyone else, I get discouraged and I get the “Woe is me” mindset.
The other day I visited a new blog that had just started (which has nothing to do with this post). I wanted to leave a comment and she had the kind of comment box that is embedded and had Word Verification.  I rarely see real words in word verifications. This time I did.
The word I needed to type in was Bless.
In spite of my emerging poor-me-itis I AM blessed.
Some days I brood over things like:
  • Stomach upsets
  • Where does my money go?
  • A house that needs a thousand repairs
  • Spilling Milk
  • Dropping my keys five times
 Life stuff.

Sometimes I get discouraged. And then I count my blessings:
  • Laughing grandchildren
  • Loving family
  • A job
  • Home
  • Friends
  • Clothing
  • Plentiful food
  • A country where I can worship God without consequences.
Just to mention a few.

I am blessed, and it took word verification to remind me—I am blessed.  

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
 
Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
 
Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100:1-5 (NIV)

Count your blessings and it may just change everything.

  2. Hi Teresa .. we are blessed - especially those blogging amongst this community.

    Embedded comment boxes are a pain .. and even if by changing browsers I can get it to work, the drop down box doesn't even space for the URL and my name .. so then can't comment.

    I am blessed with many things and I totally agree with your post - Enjoy Sunday - Hilary

  3. Beautiful post! I tend to grumble and complain from time to time, then something simple comes along to remind me how blessed I really am. Much like your verification word! It must be a God wink!

  4. Wonderful post! I hate those word verification things, but always find myself looking for messages in the letter combinations. So glad yours was just what you needed, and that you shared.
