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 thankful for the season of Autumn. The color is so rich and it is not even in peak yet. God could have made everything black and white and we would have never known. Instead He gave us the glorious colors of nature in flowers, leaves, sunsets, etc. Who knows, maybe the color we see is really like a black and white compared to the colors in heaven!!! My sweetheart took me on another drive yesterday to enjoy the colors. Here is some of what we saw.

I love going down roads like this one. It ran along a river.

You see this a lot of places around here. These are springs that someone has driven piping into. People will stop and fill gallon jugs from here.

Marci I love your blessing today and the beautiful photos. I did my blessing post and hope to continue each week. Sorry I got away from it.

We didn't get any colors this year; the snow came before anything turned, so now the leaves are brown and falling off the trees. I am enjoying your photos instead!
