Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!!

I'll be honest. I'm having kind of a hard time counting my blessings lately. I have had so much going on and this week starts a very over-whelming type of week. I'm trying to  keep my eyes on the One who has it all in His hands. It's not always easy so I do have moments of feeling really stressed and even sad at times. This too shall pass.

Let's get to thinking about the blessings in our life. Here's my list:

71.  I am thankful that I can turn to the Lord in my times of stress and uncertainty. How horrible it would be to be trying to get through all the things that life throws at us without Him.

72.  I'm so blessed to be able to sleep in my bed most nights. I do have an occassional night in my recliner, but sleeping in bed just can't be beat. What a huge blessing!

73.  My Bible study group has been so amazing. I know that the Lord put these women together to grow us and knit our hearts together. We have all become so close already and I know that we're going to be even closer by the time the study is over in May. They have all blessed me so much!

74.  The new ministry I'm involved in has really blessed me by allowing me to do for others. I won't get into all the dynamics of the ministry, but suffice to say, it's such an amazing door that has opened for our church and to be a part of it, is just humbling.

75.  My friends. I have a core group of friends that I know I can call on to pray for me or have coffee with or share my heart with and they will understand. I also know they won't gossip about me or talk about me in any way but in a loving way - the same I do for them. Such a blessing to have these godly women in my life.

I ask that you would keep me and my family in your prayers this week - especially my youngest son. He will be having his test on Friday and we're praying all goes well and that the doctors will have wisdom and discernment. Most of all, we're praying for complete healing.

I pray for you, my dear readers, and thank our God for you!
