Many Blessings

I’ve had this post idea rolling around in my head for a couple weeks now. Last Monday a link came across my email from a homeschool group I belong to and I am eternally grateful. I ran across the Holy Experience blog about a year ago and some of Ann’s posts touched me deeply. Over the course of the year, being busy and all, I lost the link. Now it is found and the timing is just right, the timing is His. I am ready to join the Gratitude Community and count my blessings. I’ve always considered myself a “silver lining” kind of person, but dealing with some personal issues the last two years had me lost in the clouds, unable or unwilling (sometimes both) to see the silver lining.

I am setting my goal for 1000 blessings for 9 months. That is 3-4 blessings a day. I want to include pictures, but am not pressuring myself with the requirement of documenting each blessing with a photo. See? That is progress right there, me and reality.  I see this process as a way to make Philippians 4:4– “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” and Philippians 4:8– “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” a way of life for myself.
