While I find myself sick, huddled under heavy covers, and coughing like crazy I feel the need to count. Yes, the world spins on and my deadlines are being rolled back. And no, I don’t like these still quite moments I’m forced to take while my body fights the virus. But all the while none of that seems to matter at the moment – only counting does.
Remembering all I have to be thankful for seems to brighten up this dreary day.
51. a warm bed
53. my hubby who heats me up something to eat
54. a cup of steaming hot soup
55. two daughters who come to hang out on my bed
56. a ray of sunshine peeping through
57. bloggy friends who ask you to quest post – thanks, Leah at The Point
58. friends that let me be me
59. friends that stretch me beyond where I am
60. mentoring others in this thing called “ministry” even when I don’t have it all figured out
61. an afternoon to cook
62. trying a new dish
63. tomatoes – I heart tomatoes
64. giving others a voice
65. singing an old hymn “what can wash away my sin?” with 17 girls at the SATF
66. the words “can you stay longer?”
67. seeing someone step out of their comfort zone never gets old
68. when words flow freely
69. worship that brings a tear and touches the core of your heart
70. a crisp apple
71. dinner with friends
72. a reminder to persevere, never quit
73. the sound of birds chirping
74. reading how others are encouraged by hand-written cards
75. give-aways and
76. the winner Laura at The Pruning Princess (I’ll email her with $20 code)
There is much to be thankful for even while you are down. Remembering to count has sure lifted my spirits. Thank you Ann for the challenge to stop and remember my blessings; they are bountiful.
Stop by A Holy Experience today and count. Stop and reflect on YOUR blessings. You will find they are everywhere, even in the dreariest of days!
