Count your blessings...

Started by

I thought since it seems are lives are so difficult and sometimes on the negative side. Maybe we might just start acknowledging blessings each day. Maybe this will help us keep ourselves from falling into all the negative. Like today I am blessed because I noticed my patience is getting better. I hope you all can see at least one blessing a day. Even though we have many we sometimes don't think about or see. May God Bless.

That's good idea! Today I got outside to do yard work and then take my dad to an appointment and a stroll downtown and I enjoyed the warm sunshine so much. That was definitely a blessing.
Sounds lovely Snoopy.
Reminds me of a song we used to sing in Church. Count your blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done!
Gershun, exactly where I got it, we still sing that song. I was singing it today(not out loud), but made me start thinking how we go through our busy and hectic days, and sometimes forget to count our blessings and be thankful True it will surprise you what the Lord does when one takes a bit to truly see.
Dear smeshque,

Thank you so much for starting this thread and for your blessings. I'm glad you noticed your patience was getting better. I really struggled with that when I was caring for my dad.

We had a big snowfall and I was hating all the shoveling. But I was blessed to make it to work in one piece and I even won a free coffee.
I am all for this smeshque! I am certain we won’t have too look far for the little blessings we get daily either. 
Nice way to begin the day!
Thank you
Cdn sorry about all the snow shoveling, consider it a bonus workout. Yay on the coffee.
Shane Your right our blessings are right before our eyes in even the next breath we take.
Thank you all for blessing my day. Enjoy all your blessings this day.
Today I am blessed with sunshine, (sorry cdn)going to soak it in with yard work.Tomorrow freezing.Brrr!
May God bless you through Jesus.
I will keep you in my prayers.

Central heating, indoor plumbing, electricity and all the appliances that are powered by it, the internet and agingcare, abundant and affordable food, a warm and comfortable bed at night and a country that will look after me when I'm old no matter how little money I have left (if all the older the baby boomers don't bankrupt us first)....

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
