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 prayer. Just think, we don't have to travel to some temple somewhere and have another man do our praying for us. We have direct access to God Almighty through His Son, Jesus Christ. It does not matter where you are, or what words you use, He is as close as speaking His name. We can commit our day to Him, commit our family to Him and rest in His loving care. We can cry out for help or for solace. We can be forgiven. His mercies are new every day. Great is His faithfulness!!!

What are YOU thankful for?

What a blessing to be able to talk to our heavenly Father anytime we wish and know he is always there. I admit I sometimes talk to him way too much but he listens patiently and answers in his gentle loving way. Yep, prayer is a totally awesome blessing
