Counting Our Blessings - Link Up

Counting my blessings is so important to my mental and spiritual health. Do you find that to be true for yourself, too? I can really focus on the negative things in life if I give myself half a chance and so stopping on Tuesday to really focus on all God has done for me, lifts my spirits and my thinking. So without further ado - here we go.

171.  As I shared last Tuesday, I hurt my foot somehow and am having horrible pain. I had an x-ray last week and saw my doctor on Thursday who shared that I have arthritis, bone spurs and soft tissue swelling. The blessing? My foot isn't broken! I was also so blessed by having such a caring doctor who was concerned about me walking with just a cane with my foot and ordered me a walker. Am I thrilled by knowing I have these new issues? No. However, I know that I am well cared for by my doctors and, more importantly, by God. 

172.  I've pulled my book back out again and am working on editing it. Yes, this is the same book I've talked about for a long time on here. I have really been convicted that I am to work on this now - immediately - and I am choosing to be faithful to His calling. I am blessed to have a calling!

173.  Hubby helped me this week and we finally got the dining table decorated for Fall. This is something I love doing and I just hadn't been able to do it with my foot the way it is. So, hubby was my feet and helped me get all this out and on the table. 

I love those little pumpkin "beads". So adorable! I've had them for years and got them at Michaels. I'm so blessed to have help to do these things that mean so much to me and brighten my life! 

Now it's your turn! Please share your own blessings on the link up below!

Blessings - Julie


  1. Thank you so much for hosting the linkup party and I have to say, I love those pumpkin beads too! They are lovely! And your husband did a great job! What a blessing, indeed. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hi Julie, been busy with work and haven't blogged for 2 weeks. It's always a blessing to read about your blessings. Sharing my link about a rainy Sunday. God bless you more and more.

  3. God bless you Julie. You help me lift my spirits up as my hip pain is creeping back up. =(

  4. Hi Julie, I love your focus on blessings. Being able to look at your painful foot with such a good attitude is a blessing. I am so sorry you have to use a walker. You are too young for one of those so heal up quickly!! :-)


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
