Reflections and Stuff

I have often said that when it is time to better CELEBRATE!!!!! We can ALWAYS make of list of the things we want to be different or improved...BUT...when God moves and good things are happening...TALK ABOUT IT! We beg and plead with God for things...we cry out to him...we long for him to come through...then when he does...too often we give him a quick "Thanks..." and then go back to pleading and is a list of they pop in my head that I am thankful for today...things to CELEBRATE!
