Mondays are always sort of a downer. We are tired from Sundays activities. It's the beginning of another long week of the same old routine. Yet, counting the ways the Lord has blessed me over the past seven days gives me the right perspective for the coming week.
I'm continuing the count the many thankful things in my life. By plugging away and naming a few each week, I've made it to 1,500! And those are only the blessings I've counted! :-)
This week I'm thankful for blessings #1496-1510 ~
