Count Your Blessings Monday!! (on Tuesday)

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!!

Yes, I am a day late again. There is a lot going on here. Today, I am thankful for a God who can be approached, a God who loves me and a God who answers prayer. A young family in our fellowship had 2 children in ICU for pneumonia and RSV. One was 5 years old and the other was 5 weeks old. They are already home and doing well. I have so many things on my prayer list right now, that it would be easy to become bogged down. Instead I choose to remember that He IS a God who hears and answers. My Dad has been having some problems and his wife is going to have a heart cath tomorrow to see what has been happening in her heart. I have a friend who is battling cancer and she if fighting for all she is worth to be able to raise her boys and be there for her husband. I have friends with chronic illness, and other friends with sick children. I will continue to lift them up in prayer, believing that God hears me and answers.

What are YOU thankful for?
