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 counting my blessings as family. I got to spend time with family this weekend. Joshua came over on Saturday afternoon and put up a wall for me. It was good to have him around and to just talk with him. Brittany came for part of the time and they stayed for dinner. On Sunday, we had a birthday party for my Dad. His birthday was really on Saturday, but we had the party on Sunday. Three of my brothers and their family were there, including my new little Great-Niece.

Sometimes family is taken for granted, but we need to take the time for them.

I'm thankful for the fall season when Family and Friends gather together to Thank God for all His many Blessings.
