Count Your Blessings Monday!!

Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in our lives. 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!!

Today, I am so thankful that God is sovereign. That even though the economy is bad, and our representation in Washington DC has forgotten what they are supposed to be doing (representing and serving the people) and things look dark, God has allowed it. They can do NOTHING without His permission. I only have to keep my focus on Him and rest in Him. There is no need to fear. Thank you Lord!!!

I agree Marci. Watching the news can get depressing, but little reminders like this are very encouraging.
