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 My Valentine!!!

This is our 33rd, Valentine's Day together and our 32nd as man and wife. We have been through so much together. We really grew up together. When we started dating I was 19 and he was almost 20. There have been some rough times, but there has been SO MANY good times. It is wonderful to look back over the journey we have taken together and see where it grew into the sweet relationship that is there today. I would gladly do it all over again. I have the sweetest Valentine there ever was. I am more in love with him now than ever and I look forward to the years ahead of us.

He has been faithful and loyal and a great provider. He has been there for me through some serious illness as well as good times. He was a great Dad to our son. He has a wonderful sense of humor and not only puts up with my weirdness, but acts like he enjoys it. :) He thinks of me first most times and always looks out for me in both big and small ways. I am so grateful to God for the Wonderful Man that He gave to me.


I also remember the most awesome love ever shown... The love of God that He sent His only Son to die for me!!!

Dear Marci, there are always so many blessings in my life. Today, I sit at my computer and hear the wind blowing through the trees and I'm so thankful for my ability to hear this awesome strength. As I sit, my youngest son is engrossed in his book on the couch, while my oldest is happily occupied with his math! Schooling is not always this easy, but it is today! My husband and I are working together to accomplish the tasks of our day, and my Father-in-Law is resting. Everyone in my house is peaceful and blessed in this moment! We are truly blessed in all the moments, seemingly good or bad. But this moment, right now, is particularly, simply, peaceful and full of love. On top of all that, we are safe and secure and warm in our home, and there is cookie dough in the fridge for making Valentine's hearts this afternoon. Everyone feels well and the work we share does not feel like a burden, rather a joy. I could ramble on all day, but I think I've said enough. I believe there are blessings in all things, in all moments, surrounding everyone. And we don't really have to look very far to find them... thanks for sharing yours with us this morning!
