Over 1000 blessings to celebrate!

Wow!  I have counted over 1000 blessings from the Lord since the beginning of this year.  Celebrate and give thanks with me to the giver of all these blessings!  Giving thanks everyday for the gifts from the Lord is such a wonderful way to stay focused on Him.  When we are thankful, it is really hard to grumble and complain or to worry about what is to come.  Giving thanks gives peace and joy!

"The only answer to God's Unending Grace - is Man's unending Gratitude!"  (Ann Voskamp)  I plan on continuing to number His blessings to me just as He numbers my days.  Do you want to join me?
