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!!

I am so grateful for God's presence. There have been so many tough situations in people's lives lately. I am so glad that they have the Lord to cling to. Pray for my friend Bonnie, who lost her husband of 50+ years this past Friday. It was not expected. My friend, Clara is spending her last hours with her husband of 50+ years. Hospice is there and they said the end if here. We had that horrible murder and kidnapping in the little town near us this past week and a half. Pray for the little girl who was found alive, but lost her family in a horrific way. I have another friend who is pregnant and due in February. They are afraid she is going to go into premature labor. She already has 8 children, so rest is hard to get.

What would we do without the Lord?

That is so sad! I'm days late reading this and by now she may have gone to be with the Lord. Yes, I've noticed that there are so many people going through trials and cannot imagine going through them without our Lord! I hope your dad is doing well!
