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 gift of music. I grew up with music. My Dad was always the song leader at church. He has played a coronet since junior high school. He could sit down and pick out songs on the piano by ear. He also played the ukulele. My mother sang in the choir. I took piano lessons for a long time as a child. I play (very minimally) a couple of other instruments. My brother played the guitar. Now, my son plays the guitar beautifully. I love music and it can truly move me. I am very particular about what music I listen to. I love to sing as well. I think that music is truly a gift from the Lord. I saw this video (it wouldn't let me embed it though) on Facebook and I loved it. It is one man singing a quintet with himself. It is beautiful. I hope you watch it and enjoy it.
