Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

I love Tuesday's because then I get to count my blessings and share them with you!

96.  I had a tough week pain wise, but am so blessed to report that I am feeling much better. When it happened, I just prayed that it would not last and that the Lord would help me. He did...just like He always does. My pain has lessened quite a bit and I've been able to sleep in my bed again and do some things. 

97.  I've been working on my inspiration board. Here's how it started out:

 It's a cork board that I put stapled pink card stock to, then put the rose ribbon between the sheets to cover up the seams. Here's a favorite card I put on there first:

Here it is with more of my favorite, inspirational quotes and Scriptures:

I will continue to add things that inspire me and keep me focused on my goals, but most importantly, I want this board to keep me focused on the Lord!

98.  I finally - and I do mean finally - got my homeschool books I've been wanting to sell organized, written down, and ready to sell. I've had these boxed up for sale for 4 years (almost 5) and am just now getting it done. I couldn't do it before because of my pain, but with my two son's help, we finally got it done! Here's a link to the pictures of what I'm selling in case it's something you're interested in - GO HERE to see the pics. I'm so blessed for the help and for getting this done.

99.  I've been wanting to revamp my website for such a long time. I finally got that done, too. It's not as complete as I want it to be, but it's so much better than it was. I love this new program that my website host provides and it made it so much easier to do because it's a drag and drop system. What a blessing to finally accomplish this!

100. Remember my post about my love of "Burn Notice"? Well, I have been totally blessed by the CLOO channel that has been showing non-stop episodes in honor of their 100th episode that will be shown this Thursday. No, I haven't stayed up for the last 36 hours to watch them, but I have enjoyed being able to turn on the TV during the past 3 days to enjoy an episode here and there. 

Now it's your turn! Link up on the inLinkz button below and share your own blessings. It doesn't have to be a list like mine - just share something this week that you enjoyed doing or were blessed by. This link will stay up for a whole week until next Monday. 

Blessings - Julie


  1. Beautiful! I love the board you created. How nice to have all your inspiration in one place to go to easily. I visited from Titus 2sdays :)

  2. I am so glad you are in less pain Julie.
    What a great board. You know I noticed that poodle right away! I have the same lavender cross under the poodle.

  3. What I great idea, loving it! My inspiration board is the outside of a wardrobe that is standing next to my computer desk :)
    God bless you!

  4. I just love your blessing list!! Counting our blessings really helps to uplift our feelings, doesn't it?! I appreciate Ann Voskamp for that.

    I just love, love, love your board. I think I am going to make one for my laundry room.

    Thanks so much for the linkup this week. I hope you keep doing them. I will be back just as long as I find the time :-)


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