Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

I wasn't sure I would be doing my link up this week because I've been sick for over 2 weeks. However, these are the times it's so important to think about what the Lord has done for me. Plus, I'm always so encouraged by your link-ups and your comments! I didn't want to miss out on that. I don't have any pictures this time, so I apologize for that ahead of time.

85.  I was so blessed this week by my son! He went to WalMart and found Composition Notebooks for 25 cents each! I use these little notebooks for everything! I use them for prayer journals, praise journals, I write my book in them, and more! They are always so expensive just for the cardboard covered ones - usually about $3.00 each - but these have the plastic cover (which is so nice) and to get them for 25 cents is such a huge blessing! I have a huge stack of them now and will probably never need to buy another one again. Score!

86.  I'm finally going to get my knee shot in my knee. Since my surgery, I've been putting a lot more stress on my other bad knee (I was supposed to get them both replaced, but you know how that all went) so it's really been hurting. I will be getting the shots in them to replace the cushioning and I'm so thankful for this. I'm praying that it helps as I should have had it done a long time ago, but of course, with all I've been through, it wasn't possible. Such a blessing to know I'm going to get some help with the other knee!

87.  I'm so thankful that my two poodles are now getting along great! They play together and chase each other through the house. My new little one loves to give Cookie kisses and they are becoming good friends. It's so fun to see them play together and it's been good for Cookie as she now has a little friend to play with. Mitzi has been such a blessing to me and now for Cookie, too!

Now it's your turn! Share your blessings on the link up below. Please grab my button to share on your blog. You'll find it under the tab "Grab My Buttons" at the top. I really appreciate this as I would love for this link-up to really take off! I think it's so important to share and focus on our blessings.


Blessings - Julie


  1. Julie, I was blessed by your book review this morning. I am also blessed thinking of Cookie and Mitzi running around playing. These things have brought smiles to my face when I need it so badly. I had the cortisone shots in my hip bursas yesterday. Very painful injections this time. So very bad. I am hoping the pain drops down by tomorrow.


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