Count Your Blessings Monday!!


Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. If you would like to take part great. If not that is OK too. If you would like to share your blessing, just leave it in the comments. If you want to use the picture above and list a blessing on your own site, then leave a URL to your site in the comments. There is no pressure here. I just know that I am incredibly blessed and I would like to share that and give thanks to Him who all blessing come from. This is a way that we can encourage one another. I know that I am often encouraged when someone shares a blessing with me. 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. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

I am full to the brim with blessings this week. We had a wonderful visit with friends. Their son's leg is healing nicely. I got to play with little ones and snuggle a baby for 9 days. We had good times of worship, discussion, and just plain old fun. I am truly blessed!!!

Marci,

Yes, we are fortunate to have so many blessings. I certainly enjoyed seeing the photos of the children and the baby. Poor Duke! No wonder he was depressed. He is gorgeous.

Over Christmas and New Years, I too was abundantly blessed. Cuddling my youngest great nephew, kisses from my older great nephew, time with my grandsons, time with my mother and so much more.

I certainly enjoyed visiting with you. It's been way too long.

Blessings,
Mary

Wow! List some of our blessings. That's hard because there are so many of them. I guess the most important ones to me are the blessing of having a Savior and His Word to guide us. Next to that, I'm feeling very blessed with having a family that loves God.
