Counting My Blessings - A Thousand Gifts

I'm starting a little project that has me excited about my Mondays!  

I have consistently found that one of my strongest coping mechanisms when facing disappointment, or stress...or just life(!) is to focus on what God has given me rather than on what I wish I had. It works every. single. time.

I started this blog because I wanted to have a place to document some of the immeasurable gifts (blessings!) that God has given me.  Just my way of sharing out loud and for the record that I know my beloved Creator and Savior loves me and showers me with that love in countless ways...but for the next few months I am going to try to count them anyway :)  After reading this blog post I thought she had a great idea & have decided to join along.  I am specifically dedicating my Mondays to thanksgiving, and I am going to share my observations with you.   If you'd like to join me, I would love to hear what God is doing in your life too!

This list is in no particular order.  I know myself.  If I focus too much on the mechanics of the list I'll be completely distracted from the point!  Sad. Yet true.

A Thousand Gifts, A Thousand Blessings:

1.  I am so thankful for my salvation.  I have a personal relationship with the King of Kings.  He loves me and provided a way for me to be with Him forever and ever.  Thank you, Father!
2.  That good tired I get after I've worked hard and been productive.
3.  A strong, healthy body that is capable of getting up and getting things done.
4.  My children are thoughtful.
5.  My children are healthy!
6.  Low humidity :)
7.  The sunshine streaming through my windows early in the morning.
8.  Audrey, Audrey, Audrey.
9.  The night sky filled with stars.
10.  Birthday greetings from loved ones.
11.  I get to talk to the God of the universe any time I want to, as much as I want to.  How cool is that?!!
