Count Your Blessings Monday!!

Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. 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 want to thank the Lord for His Word and the promises contained within it. He has promised to never leave or forsake me. He has promised that He is preparing a place for me in heaven. He knows my every thought and has plans for my life. I can trust Him to unfold them before me. Even if there is no one else, He is enough. There is so much more, but even just what I wrote can be truly mind boggling when you sit and think about it.

What are you counting as a blessing today?

I am also thankful for his word. I am thankful he is always there for me. I tell myself too often to stop taking control and let God handle it. He knows whats in store for me and I just need to be patient and trust my savior. Have a blessed week!!

I am up in freezing Canada, it was minus 40 F this week, so yes, I am very thankful for a warm house and a warm bed.
