I turn 31 today. More than anything I am feeling thankful for the years I have been given. God has given me many good times, a few difficult times, and many, many mundane days. Don't get me wrong—I am thankful for the mundane days, too. I don't think I could handle the excitement of every day being special or exciting and I'm glad the number of difficult days have been kept to a minimum, considering 31 years.
The hymn "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty" has been going through my mind all morning. Every line applies to the goodness of God I've seen in my life. My soul has been stirred to praise God for His many, many blessings, first of which is the great love that He has lavished on me.
I would encourage you to read, sing, and meditate on these words. Your time will not be wasted.
