Counting My Blessings

27 Nov

DSCN1814Can you believe another Thanksgiving is behind us? As I refrigerated the leftovers, washed the dishes, and finally got the chance to prop up my feet, I contemplated my blessings.

Now that my sons are grown, it’s rare for us to be under the same roof, so naturally, praising the Lord for the joy of their company was fitting. Thoughts of my sons brought to mind an extra blessing, my future daughter-in-law, so I offered thanks for her. I then recalled my parents, sisters, aunts and uncles, and cousins. I thanked the Lord for them, and for my family members who’ve passed from this life into eternity.

I thanked the Lord for health, purpose, and His provision for me. At each remembrance, my list of thanks expanded. The more I gave thanks, the more I recognized how blessed I am. Psalm 136:1 says, “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever.” Ultimately, it was God’s goodness that called me to repentance and faith in Him. This is the greatest blessing of all. I’m so thankful.

What blessings are yours? I’d love to hear!

    Christ’s forgiveness of my sins (which are legion) is my first and foremost blessing, but family is snugged right up against that. When you have your family near, you are richer than any king in a castle. 🙂

    We truly have so much to be thankful for. God is good all the time, all the time God is good. Glad you had a great holiday!
