Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

What a week! It was so cold here all week with the high, bitter cold winds. I'll be so glad when Spring finally comes to stay. I know many of you probably feel the same way - especially those of you that actually got snow last week.

We are feeling better at the homestead and for that, I am so thankful! I am still tired a lot and still need my naps most days, but they aren't as long and I don't feel as exhausted as I did. Huge blessing right there!

So, let's get started on our blessings for this week. Don't forget to share yours on the linkup below and  share something from your blog that blessed you, you made, or that you think would be great to share as a blessing. Remember, you can grab my button for this link-up on the tab above and I am so thankful to those of you that have. I am also so thankful for all of you that come back, week after week, and share on my linkup. It's really you who make this the great thing that it is! Thank you!

45.  We had to go to the big city last week for my hubby to go to the vascular doctor. He sees the same doctor that put the bypass in my leg when the artery was cut in surgery. He's an amazing doctor and such a blessing to us! My hubby's tests came out good and that was a huge blessing.

46.  I was able to go to Barnes and Noble while I was there and found the cross stitch magazines I have really been wanting from the UK. I am having a really hard time finding them in my town and I knew that it was best to look in the huge city we go to. They were all there! So happy!

47.  I didn't really work on any cross stitch this week because I'm making some crochet gifts. Here's the start of some little baby booties that I'm making. Don't you love this yarn? Such beautiful baby colors all in one skein! I'll share pictures of the finished project when I get it done, shipped and the person I'm making them for receives it.

48.  I shared here that I'm doing the daily Scripture writing from HERE. I have actually been doing it has been such a blessing! Here's the pages for today and tomorrow. I drew something with my gel pens on the one page and unfortunately, it came through to the other side. I won't do that again. Anyway, that's what that shadow is you're seeing on today's page. I really love writing out Scripture and find it to be such a great way of really focusing on a Scripture and seeing things I might not have seen if I had read it only.

Join in on the fun using the linky below!

Blessings - Julie


  1. Thank you Julie. YOU are a blessing to me. YOU and YOUR PRAYERS. Such hard times lately. I made the neurologist appt. It is next week. Let us pray THAT will be a blessing.

  2. Thanks for doing the Link up.

    I have been thinking about doing some scripture writing myself, so it was interesting that it came up on my radar again this week. :-)


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