BLESSINGS…


The other day, I was thinking about all of God’s blessings…things I take for-granted…things I’ve pretty much always had access to, so they  became the norm for me; then I thought about others in this world that have not been as fortunate as I, and I began to count my blessings.  Here are just a few…-anita

When upon life’s billows, you are tempest tossed; when you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, count your many blessings…name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done!

Count your blessings…name them one by one.  Count your blessings, see what God has done!  Count your blessings!  Name them one by one!  Count your many blessings…see what God has done! -from an old Hymnal
