Count Your Many Blessings

The other day, a friend of mine mentioned writing a journal on the blessing that come your way, no matter how small.   I think it’s a good idea.

Take time to notice those blessings that come your way.  For instance….

The sun’s rays cut through the clouds in the Eastern sky… what a great way to start the day (a blessing).

or

This cantaloupe, my husband picked yesterday (his one and only cantaloupe that grew this year)… it was the sweetest I have tasted in a very long time (a blessing).

In the Bible, God made a promise of blessing to Abraham and it still applies to us today.

And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. ~ Ezekiel 34:26

So, give it a try.  Start a journal and write down a blessing every time it comes your way.

I’m going to start one.

I think we will be surprised of how blessed we are.  🙂

TODAY’S QUESTION
What is something that can always make you feel better?
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Tonight, after my Bible study, I worked on my quilt project.  I got quite a bit done as I sang along with the Gaither Vocal Band.   Those guys can sure praise the Lord!  🙂   Here’s one that I can totally relate to.
 Okay, I got a little side-tracked…. back to my quilt project… I hope to have a finished project to show you soon.

Don’t wait for a crisis 
to discover what is 
important in your life.

God bless and keep you,

My answer to the last question:  I wanted to be a soldier.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
