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, the blessing I am counting is for being able to live in a country that allows me to worship the Lord freely. It may not always be so, but for now it is. I am also thankful the ones who have defended that right for me, many of which died for that cause. Thank you!!

My blessing is along the same lines as yours.

I am blessed by the Veterans, past--and present, that have defended our country, and gave us all Freedom.

I thank them, and their families, for their sacrifice
