Day 304: October

Can you believe it’s the last day of October already? I can’t, the year’s almost over already. For me October is the one true month of fall we get each year, at least where I live. The leaves are turning colors and the days are cooler, but not cold yet like they can be in November. My favorite holiday, besides Christmas, takes place during October that’s right, my Birthday! I love the fact that I was born during such a beautiful month, where the weather can be either cool or warm. It makes things interesting.

Day 304: Thank you Lord for the month of October! Thank you for allowing me to be born in such a beautiful and unpredictable month!

Day 303: Finding Things Quickly

At work today I discovered I had improperly processed a document and I had to go back and find it. Unfortunately, it’d already been partially further processed, and it looked like I would have to do quite a bit of searching to find it. But I was able to find it almost right away and I was SO happy! It’s so important at my job that everything is processed correctly because there can be major consequences if it isn’t, so I’m so glad I discovered my error and was able to find it so quickly. Everyone makes mistakes and it’s important to correct them as soon as possible when we realize it, but if we can’t find it or it takes a while to find it, then it takes up time that we could be doing other things.

Day 303: Thank you Lord for times when I find things quickly, especially at my job. It makes things so much easier and saves so much time!

Day 302: Improv Everywhere

I go on youtube almost every day, mainly to watch videos of TV shows I enjoy, but there are a couple solely youtube channels I enjoy watching. Improv Everywhere is probably my favorite! I love watching their videos and seeing what they’re going to do next to surprise people out in public.

I would love to participate in one of their “missions” one day and/or come across one. I’m particularly enjoying their current project where they reenact scenes from movies in real life! I was happy when the video they posted from this series on my birthday was from one of my 3 favorite movies “The Fellowship of the Ring.”

I always laugh at their videos and think they’re awesome, but probably my 2 favorites are ones where they actually helped someone. The first is when they staged a surprise wedding reception for a random couple who got married at the courthouse. I think this was such a wonderful idea, and the couple really seemed to enjoy/appreciate it!

Another video I really loved took place on Black Friday last year. They camped out in front of a Dollar Store before it opened, then went in and bought stuff. I thought this was such a wonderful idea, and the store owner was so surprised and seemed to really appreciate the business.

Day 302: Thank you Lord for Improv Everywhere, and how they always brighten my day when I watch one of their videos!

Day 301: Not Complaining

There’s a co-worker who sits near me who I hear complaining about something every single day. (I seriously think this person could not go through the day without complaining about something) Frankly its become VERY annoying! Ok, I will say that a few of the things they complain about are justifiable, but for the most part they aren’t. Having to listen to this person constantly complaining has helped me realize that while there are times when complaints are justifiable and necessary, most of the time they aren’t.

When I feel like complaining about something I try to remember Philippians 2:14 “Do all things without grumbling or disputing.” It’s so easy to complain or grumble when things aren’t turning out the way we want them to, but we can’t always have things our way. We often waste so much time complaining that we waste time that we could be doing the very things we’re complaining about and then we could be doing something else.

Day 301: Thank you Lord for times when I and other people could easily complain and don’t, it makes things so much simpler, and saves time and energy.

Day 300: Worship

The sermon at church this morning was a powerful one on worship. I’ll admit “worship” is one of my favorite parts of a Sunday morning service, I love to sing praises to God and showing him how much I love him. But worship is so much more than just singing! Everything we do as Christians should be an act of worship, we should do it for God’s glory and to show him how much we love him. I know I don’t always do that, but I try. I want my heart to be in the right place when I worship God, and I try to the best of my ability to keep it there.

Day 300: Thank you Lord for worship so we as Christians can show you how much we love you!

“Heart of Worship” by Matt Redman
When the music fades
and all has slipped away
and I simply come.
Longing just to be
something that’s of worth
that will bless Your heart.

I’ll bring You more than a song,
for a song in itself
is not what You have required.
You search much deeper within,
through the way things appear,
Your looking into my heart.

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
and its all about You, its all about You, Jesus.
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
when its all about You, its all about You, Jesus.

King of endless worth,
no one could express
how much you deserve.
Though I’m weak and poor,
all I have is Yours,
every single breath!

Day 299: Layers

I spent most of last night outside in pretty cold weather. But since I started out before sunset it wasn’t too bad when I first got there. I’d worn and brought a few layers of clothes and as the night went on I put on more layers, and I was able to stay pretty warm till the end of the night.

When you’re going to be outside for a while in cold weather layers are so nice! (Especially if it’s at night) They keep you warm, and as the night gets colder you can add another layer and get even warmer, or if it’s during the day, if you get warm you can take off a layer.

Day 299: Thank you Lord for layers so I stay warm as when I’m outside as the weather gets colder, and not start out too warm.

Day 298: Remembering my Password

I had a major brain fart at work today and couldn’t remember one of my passwords. As a result I had to have that one reset, which was a major hassle. As bad as it may sound to forget my password, it’s understandable. I have several different passwords for different things at work and I’m forced to change them every month. As you might imagine it can be hard to keep them all straight, and remember which password I’m currently using. So I really glad when I remember all of my passwords, especially on the first try.

Day 298: Thank you Lord for the times when I remember all of my passwords at work, so I don’t have to think and remember which one I’m using or have it reset.
