Life is a Gift; Cherish it

Happy Sunday, ladies! Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. We go to church and then we have lunch at our house with my daughter and her family.

Sometimes our son will drive down and eat with us too (he lives almost 2 hours away).

life is a gift

It’s become a tradition, and I like traditions. The older I get, the more I cherish the times we spend together as a family.

This past year has made me cherish those times even more. Life is a gift, and it’s the simple things that I cherish, like a warm home, food, and health.

This pandemic has taken a toll on all of us. I’ve talked to young moms who have struggled with homeschooling, I’ve also talked to older adults who have felt isolated and lonely.

It’s so easy to become fearful and to worry about our future. God reminds us over and over in scripture to not fear.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

I read this quote yesterday, and it’s a good way to start our day:

life is a gift

Remember, life is a gift. Let’s love deeply, forgive quickly, and cherish every moment with our family and friends.

This video is so powerful; I don’t know what you’re facing today but let me encourage you to keep going. Don’t ever give up!

 

 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full. John 10:10

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Have a blessed day!

  1. You have such a beautiful family, and I couldn’t agree more. There is nothing better than spending time with them. XO

  2. Love your post today and you are so right! This Wednesday is my sons 32nd birthday. He has been gone 3 years now and we miss him terribly. But God is using this hard time for good. I am now co leading Grief Share. We never know when our last breath will be, so tell your loved ones you love them, an extra hug.

  3. This has blessed me so much. ♥️ Ever since the end of December “Faith Over Fear” has come to me by written and spoken word over and over again.

  4. Thank you for your blog. Mercy Me always seems to be right on target with their songs and message. I appreciate you sharing this with us.

  5. Thanks, Cyndi!!!
    I need to be reminded how much I have to be thankful for! I had a stroke and have struggled with depression since. I need to be reminded that it could have left me a lot worse off then I am If we look we can always find someone else whose burden is greater then ours. Cotvid and the isolation have been very hard, but with Gods hel, I am going to make it !!!!!

  6. Thankyou Cindi I love reading all the inspirational messages from you and ALL the people who reply! So good to hear posit e and not negative
    Love your style too!

    1. Thank you. It’s always good to be reminded of what we have, especially in these times and with many having so little. We are struggling when it’s ok to go back to church. So hard. We have a smaller building so harder to social distance and some refuse to wear masks. A church member has covid now and so we just don’t feel safe yet but after a year of being home doing church online it’s really getting to me. In my whole life I’ve never missed church this long. I need to be around others and worship with them. I don’t know the answer. Hoping by late Spring/Summer things will be better. Our county is still in the high risk category here in Oregon. :(. We usually have done better. Praying about it.

  7. Thank you, Cyndi, for this beautiful blog and all you share each day. I’ve followed you for about a year now. I have found the beauty tips, products and fashion you share so helpful. Most of all, I appreciate how you let Jesus shine through you so others can see and be touched.
    Thank you, again, for sharing your life with us! You are an inspiration to so many! Blessings!

  8. I needed this so much this morning Cindy. Just when you think you have insurmountable problems …. a whole new perspective. Nothing is impossible with God … God is so, so very good, all the time! Bless you !
