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 answered prayer.  We have been praying for several years about getting a truck.  We finally got one this past weekend.  We are grateful to God for providing for our needs.

What are YOU thankful for?

I am so thankful to our Lord for caring to answer my prayer. I found out at Thankgiving that instead of drawing names in the family (which would mean my daughter would have to buy only one gift in our family) that we were expected to get a gift for all the kids in my family (which meant 5 gifts). We simply did not have the $ in our budget for that and our Christmas dinner was planned early, so I had 14 days to MAKE 5 gifts that would not disappoint! I crochet, so I planned to make each child something special. Crochet takes much longer than you think, so it was going to take a miracle to finish gifts. So I prayed for one!!! All glory goes to God b/c I finished the last gift 4 hours before our Christmas dinner, after crocheting every moment I had in those 14 days. And the majority of the children loved their gifts (also a rarity.) :o) I'm also thankful that God allowed someone to invent Aspercreame.
