COUNTING BLESSINGS

from online


121. Rain – gentle rains in November to soak in the trees for the winter.

122. So many private, personal things that are not for public announcements and that my heavenly Father knows them.

123. Amazing people we’ve met over the years who have influenced our lives.

124. A raise – however small!

125. That a widowed friend is able to go on a tour around South America for two weeks! May she relax and rejoice! Can’t wait to see her pictures and hear her stories.

126. The comfort of the Holy Spirit to each one according to their need – especially for all those women in my circle of friends who have been widowed – 7 in the past two months.

127. For our terrific children, two daughters and a son, and each one of their spouses!

128. For our amazing grandchildren. What a joy to watch them grow and mature. Lord, may they all be yours is our prayer.

129. For the internet and all the excellent blogs and websites for our reading pleasure.





130. Shadows in life – which also means the sun is shining!

131. That I can lean on the everlasting arms and know He will take care of everything.

132. Answered prayer.

133. Ability to make choices in our lives. 



134. An attitude of gratitude by so many people, especially at Thanksgiving.

135. For the genuine LOVE we can share freely with people without being misunderstood. 



Let them give thanks to the LORD 
for his unfailing love 
and his wonderful deeds 
for mankind.. 
Psalm 107:8

A wonderful, thankful post Karin. Wishing you many blessings this Monday. Georgia is getting much needed rain today.

Ginny said...

We both have so many blessings to be thankful for, don't we? Congradulations on your raise, yipee!! And right before Christmas! Shadows can be good, because it means there's a light shining somewhere.

Thank you for another wonderful list. I like the fact that you counted 'Shadows in life -- which also means the sun is shining!' as a blessing. That attitude is a blessing indeed!

Lady Dorothy said...

I was going to comment on one that I liked and then as I kept reading, that list grew until if I listed all that blessed me, it would be a totally redundant list!

Betty said...

I always feel blessed reading your thankful list.

Enjoy your evening, Karin!

Love reading your blessings, Karin.... AND--Tennessee is having some much-needed rain also.... We have been so dry ---so anytime we get some rain, it is truly a blessing.

It's amazing all the blessings we find when we only stop to think about it. I always start my day counting my blessings -

God is good!

Marg said...

Thanks for being such a blessing in my life, as a blog friend, just as you wrote...blessings for the internet where we can encourage each other.

Some folks have "an eye for detail" . . . you have "an eye for blessings"! I like what you said about shadows, too!

Ann said...

Those berries in your bottom photo, what are they?

You sing the Count your blessings ?

Isn't it interesting that so many find the "Shadows in life .. which means the sun is shining" a favorite.

Do you think that is a commentary that life has been hard for a bunch at this time - or an awesome statement that many are not living in the drudges of the down moment - but know God is in control all the time - and He works "all things together for good' no matter the situation?

I like that.
