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 for the body of Christ. We will be getting some visitors next week. Brittany's family is coming and another family we have not met in person will be coming. It will be fun to get to know some new people and to love on some old friends. I wish Brittany's dad read my blog because then I would make a crack about "OLD" friends. We tease him because he is so much OLDER than we are. :) Maybe Brittany will have him read this or at least tell him about it. It is no fun to tease someone when they are unaware of it. Anyway, we will have a houseful, but it will be full of family... God's family. Now, I need to get busy and get my upstairs cleaned for them all. :)
