Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

I missed doing my link up on Counting Our Blessings last week...it was such an incredibly busy week! However, I'm back and I hope you'll join me in counting our blessings!!

 76.  This is a bittersweet blessing...my Bible study ended last week. It was such an amazing year of studying Genesis and I met such wonderful women! Our little group really bonded and we are planning on getting together over the summer. I'm looking forward to a summer of refreshment and rest, and yet, I'm really going to miss my Tuesday night girls!

77.  One of the girls in my Bible study blessed me so much and gave me this!!

 I just was stunned, in tears, and totally blessed!! I have the New Testament commentary, but really had wanted the Old Testament. What an amazing gift and she is such a wonderful person to remember I wanted one and to gift it to me. Wow! I'm still so incredibly amazed and blessed and always will be! Thank you, Dawn!

78.  I spent two days with my cousin at her church's retreat last Thursday and Friday! She asked me to come a couple of weeks ago and I really wasn't sure I could do it financially or physically. They held it at a campground in the next town over and so I could come home to sleep, which was a must. After I hesitated, she texted me the next day and said she would pay for half the retreat. Again, wow!! Such a blessing! I had a great time with her and I made it through physically, although my knee was quite swollen on Friday and is still bothering me, but it was worth it to spend that sweet time with her! Thank you, Kathy!

79.  Mother's Day was so nice! We spend the day just relaxing. We cooked out on the grill, sat on the porch and played cards, and just enjoyed our time together. My oldest son couldn't be here so we have decided to celebrate on Wednesday when he's off. So, I actually get to celebrate twice! Blessing!!

80.  I'm going to be going to my own church's women's conference this week and I'm really looking forward to it! They are holding it at our worship center, which is quite close to my house, and I know that I'm going to just learn so much, get closer to the Lord and be blessed! They are having a special speaker and I've heard really good things about her. I can't wait! How amazing that I'm getting to do all these great things...I am totally blessed!

Now it's your turn! Share your own blessings from the week and link up on the Linky below!

Blessings - Julie


  1. Julie I am so glad for your wonderful experience. And more to come! I go to the pain doctor in a few hours.

  2. Just found you through Time Warp Wife. Love how you count your blessings! we've just started doing that with our kids at home this year. We have a beautiful vase on our counter and every time something happens we can write it down and put it in the jar and at the end of the year we will literally be able to count our blessings! I added a link that was non-blessing-counting related...hope that is alright. My husband and I run a marriage restoration site: Marriage Life Ministries.


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