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!!

I am so thankful today for a God who is so personal.  He knows me intimately and yet He still loves me.  When I get down and discouraged, He is right there.  I can talk to Him anywhere at any time and He is always available.  There is no friend like Him.  He loves me warts and all.  He is always trying to help me to grow.  He gives me circumstances that are not always comfortable to stretch me to a new level in that area of my life.  True love does that.  Too often people aren't willing to truly stretch you or be stretched by you because it is not comfortable. 

What are YOU thankful for today?
