Count Your Blessings

As I was contemplating my post for today, the song "Count Your Blessings" was playing over and over in my head.  With all the uncertainty and struggles, it's good to sit back and actually ...count my blessings.

So I continue my list of simple blessings and link up with Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience.

I love how the parents dress their little preschoolers each day.  I had to chuckle at a few of the t-shirts they wore and of course, Miss Debbie had to snap a photo.

#68 Kambria's happy shirt brought a big smile to my face.

#69  The cutest t-shirt

Rachel asked me what her shirt said after I told her how precious it was.  She thought that was pretty cool and that her mom really is cute.

#70  Brother for sale

I wonder who put the price tag on Hunter's shirt.  I loved it.

#71 The blessing of unique backpacks.  Vera was so excited to show me the new one she got.

On my long drive in to work, I look for simple blessings.  Tara, my carpool buddy, has gotten used to me pointing out something that grabs my attention.  For some time now, I noticed people riding horses along the road but never had my camera ready.

#72 A glimpse of a horse in the middle of the city.

I also had the unique pleasure of accompanying Tara to pick up her wedding dress after work on Friday.  Tara is getting married to her fiancée Josh at the end of July in West Virginia.  Her mom is quite a distance away so I was so happy to be there for her.  Her dress is so elegant and I know she will make a beautiful bride.

#73  Seeing Tara in her wedding gown

I was sick all weekend but I got to spend lots of time with my hubby Greg.  He was also sick.  I guess if I'm counting my blessings I must be thankful for this time together.

#74  Spending time with Greg

Blessings and love,

I think I need to begin putting my blessings on paper! It at least makes you realize how blessed we truly are, even when things are not going right!

Thank you!

I loved reading your daily blessings. Those shirts of the children are so cute. I love the "brother for sale."
Wishing you a very nice week Debbie.

How appropriate for me that you mention "Count Your Blessings", Debbie! We talked about it last night in my small group and went around the room thanking God for our blessings we counted. It was just what I needed (isn’t it always?). Love the t-shirts. Made me smile. Have a blessed week!

Hi Sweet Friend,
Just now checked my blog after a 3 week absence and was touched by your comment. This "settling in" process has really distracted me and I need to fit blogging into some kind of a schedule.

Praying that you and Hubby are feeling MUCH Better!
May our Gracious LORD shower you with unexpected blessings so that you can bloom vibrantly right where you are.
Many ((HUGS)) sent your way!

Apart from your not feeling well, sounds like you're thriving amidst though little ones (and Greg)!

I always enjoy your gratitude list because it always evokes thoughts of all the blessings afforded me and mine. In fact, I've started a gratitude journal and it's been such a blessing to me.

Have a great week!
