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 many things. I am thankful for my country and that so far we are still free. I think the key to turning America around is for Christians to humble themselves before God and repent. I keep hearing many Christians say that like it is the other guy who needs to do that. We each one need to get on our face before Him and turn from our wicked ways.

I am also grateful that I am done with my practice shawl. I am also so grateful that I did a practice one first. I made a design flaw which I will fix on the real shawl I make. I am thankful that Marion let me borrow her loom. I am excited to get started on my dream shawl.

Your shawl looks great. Can't believe it's just a "practice" one!

Good job Marci! Maybe you can make these to sell to earn extra money since you were looking for ways to earn something from home. I'm a potential customer! Lisa in NM
