Counting My Blessings On a Sunday Afternoon
is where I reflect on a few of my many blessings and special moments at the end of every week♥
This week I am especially thankful for!…
~Lovey has started saying tink-choo (thank you) whenever we give him something or he gives us something in return. 😉 Sometimes he’s even so proud of our affirmations when he says it that he starts clapping. I love it!
~Learning to knit! I am on my way to becoming a knitting Queen! Ok, maybe I shouldn’t go that far 😉 but I am extremely excited!! I have a loved one who is no longer able to do simple things like this because she has severe arthritis. I know there is no cure for it but I pray that some days will at least be better than others for her. So while on the subject of knitting I would like to say that I am thankful for my good health so that I can knit til’ my ♥ is content.
~”Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
Isn’t this the truth! Our society tells us to want more,more, more. It’s so needed for us to just reflect on what we have. For many of us it truly is more than we ever even hoped for!
~While browsing others blogs this week I came across one by a man who (I can’t remember his blogs name so I’m afraid I can’t give him proper credit here.) made a very valid point: we are taught to seek God when we are at our wits ends. When the worlds seems to be crashing in on us and we have no where else to turn to, but to put our faith in him. This comes easy for us, myself included. But what about when everything is going well in our lives, when we have other outlets of hope and comfort to turn to, why does our relationship with, and humble thankfulness to God often seem to fall at our waist side? Renewed only when troubles lay ahead. I was so happy this was brought to my attention because the point he was making holds much truth. I don’t want my relationship with God to be filled soley with a never-ending list of needs from him but also a delightful conversation, like one you would have over morning coffee with a dear friend, of sincere appreciation for the rainbow that comes after the storm.
Thank You for Your many gracious blessings in my life Lord, in Your Name, amen.
