Day after day, counting our blessings.
One by one they have piled up.
Small ways we see God's hand in our lives over the past month.
We are called to a life of thanksgiving. A life of joy. A life of practicing the presence of God.
Our blessings have accumulated throughout the month.
Today is the day when we pull them out of our thankful jar and review the many little blessings that have accumulated.
