Realizing how blessed you are is an amazing feeling

As I lay here in bed going into the last day of “guys weekend 2010” I’ve realized for the first time how amazingly blessed I am. God has given me wonderful parents, a beautiful wife, a small dog with a big personality and the greatest group of friends I could have ever asked for. Life isn’t without its struggles and challenges. Right now even some of the hardest I’ve ever faced, but I find myself growing happy, feeling content, and understanding grace. After completing the first week of my challenge that I’ve given myself I have already began to feel my heart breaking, my wounds closing and my eyes opening. I love life! I can still get scared, I still have my own personal demons, but God has finally put me at a place where I’ve began to face those demons. He’s brought back old friends. Given me new ones to help out and is constantly reminding me that he is God and I am not. My life has been gutted. Being stripped down to bare essentials. Love, family, friends and most importantly God. I know there will continue to be challenges. Low times will come and I will once again fail at meeting my expectations of handling those challenges. But I’ll be picked back up, get dusted off and hit the trail. Remembering that life’s a journey. A journey where you run when you can, walk if you have to and crawl when you must. We know the destination. Now enjoy the ride.
