Multitude Monday

Psalm 7:17 ~ "I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High."


This morning I realized that I have almost reached my goal of counting 1,000 blessings. I've loved being able to do this and it has helped me to focus not on the problems in my life, but on the many ways the Lord has blessed me.

There are so many blessings we miss out on because we just never notice them. We can spend a lifetime complaining and wishing things were different and yet, all the time, good is in front of us. If only we would take time to stop and actually see the things God has given us!

This week I'm thankful for blessings #836-850

♫ Selling 3 aprons.
♫ Listening to my daughter sing a song she wrote, while her daddy plays guitar.
♫ An invitation to have a craft table at our district's next ladies retreat in April.
♫ Helping Emily study for a test and seeing a good grade as a result.

♫ A table ready for guests.
