Count Your Blessings Monday

Here is an opportunity for you to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. If you have a blog, please sign Mr. Linky below and post on your blog. Please link back to this blog and you may use the picture above. If you do not have a blog, leave a comment on this post telling us what you are thankful for and what you are counting as a blessing today. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

Today, I am thankful for having a garden. Even though we have not had all the rain that we would like, the garden is growing and doing well. We have had lettuce and green onions for salads, and this past week, we have picked 6 or 8 zucchinis. The tomatoe plants are getting so tall and there are lots of green tomatoes. The corn is growing, there are baby beans on the plants. You can truly see God at work when you are in a garden.

I am also thankful to the Lord for His protection. Michael and I drove into town on Saturday. We went to the bank and then into Staples. We came out of Staples and went to leave our parking space and could hear something dragging under the car. We figured we ran over something. The tie rod end (sp?) had fallen off. If that had happened while we were driving, it could have been very bad.

Garden produce...the best! I just got a zucchini and some peas this last week. I too have lots of green tomatoes, can't wait to eat them!

Good blessings. I had the same thing happen to me but I was driving at the time. I was only going 25 thru a residential so that was a blessing.
