Counting Blessings blog


Hi friends– Are you a late night worrier?  I’m especially good at it.  At times I can drum up enough worries to keep me awake for hours.  But on the other hand– I do love this counting blessings plan.

Isn’t that what Thanksgiving time reminds us to do?  My 4th graders in room #2 are beavering away on their “Thankful Heart Charts” to fill them up before the holiday.  They draw on things like donuts and Minecraft as well as moms and math and God.

And I’m trying to remind myself of blessings through my days this month.  We’ve been blessed with our cozy small house, with friends of many years and our kids we’ll be with Thanksgiving week.  And there’s more blessings, if I just keep counting.  I’m hoping to be awash with thankfulness for blessings, large and small as Thanksgiving comes along.

I’m sure you have your own list of ways you’ve been blessed.  I’m hoping you and I can both slow down enough to be true blessing counters in this season of Thanksgiving.

“Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything.”     –Epsesians 5:19-20
