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 so grateful for God.  He is not some distant being that has so many things to care for that I don't count.  I have a personal relationship with Him.  He walks with me and carries me when the way gets hard.  It does not matter what problems are all around me, He is there, loving me and caring for me.  He blesses me and teaches me and leads me and grows me.  He is also my Protector, Provider and Tender Wound Carer.  I don't know where I would be without Him.

What are YOU thankful for?

I, too, am thankful for His great love for us. Today I am also thankful that He has blessed us with changing seasons to enjoy. What a beautiful day we are having today!
