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 thankful that I live on a farm. I am thankful that God is in control of all the aspects of our farm and our animals. I am thankful that He hears me and responds to our prayers about things. He does not always answer the way I want, but He does answer prayer. Here are some scenes from around here that bring joy to my heart.

I LOVE sunflowers. I love the colors of these.

The baby bluebirds are still alive and growing and so stinkin' cute!!

We get a good view of incoming fronts and clouds.

Even weeds can be beautiful.

What are YOU thankful for?
