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.
