“Everyone who is alive can find something to be grateful for if they look for it.
If you are among the few that can’t find anything,
start with the fact that you are ALIVE and continue from there.
Counting ones blessings is a barometer of mental health.”
― Gudjon Bergmann from:
The Seven Human Needs: A practical guide to finding harmony and balance in everyday life
Blessings...As I wrote this word, the song, "Count your Blessings", from White Christmas came to mind. Maybe it is because I'm writing this late at night when I'm normally in bed, or maybe it's because I just watched White Christmas last week. Yes, I like to watch Christmas movies during the year, they are uplifting and full of hope. But I digress.
Last week I encouraged you to share WHO you are thankful. This week I hope to keep the positivity going as we flood the comments with how you have been blessed this week. Personally, each day I wake up is a blessing because God's granted me another day to share hope and joy with others. I'm blessed to have a job that offers me the opportunity to use my creativity and invest in the next generations. Each day there are things I am able to see God working in and through to bless me, even when things aren't going great, God is there and so are His Blessings.
If you struggle to come up with a blessing to share, close your eyes and quiet your mind. What is the first thing that comes to mind? How has this impacted you in a positive way? How does this situation, activity, event, person, or happening show you that you are blessed? The more you focus on the blessings, the easier it becomes to see them. May you be blessed as you count your blessings.
I'd ask you to list how God blessed you today in the comments but we'd run out of room,
