Counting My Blessings

Today work ended kind of badly.  I got my yearly review.  I was not happy because I was not given a raise.  I was reviewed by someone who does not work with me all the time.  So that is my bad news for the day.  Instead of getting angry, I kept reminding myself that God is in control.  So, I counted some of my blessings.  I think I have way too many to count.  LOL.

I commented to Bill today that I didn't understand how unsaved people can go through life without Christ.  What a lost feeling that must leave in someone's heart.  How empty and vapid life must be.  How temporary is their hope here on earth.

Counting my blessings makes me realize how blessed I am.  I have a husband who loves and adores me (ditto to him from me).  I have three wonderful sons who love me and pester me to no end!  LOL.  I have a lovely daughter-in-law who I hope loves me.  LOL.  Then I have a beautiful grandson and a long-awaited granddaughter to arrive on the scene soon.

THEN, my blessings continue in the form of the Cooper family.  Sokratis and Amy who have allowed us to be their eight children's grandparents.  Amy has also allowed me to be a part of her horse's life which is a lifelong dream to own a horse.

AND, we go to a fantastic church: Lone Mountain Missionary Baptist Church.  We have a Godly pastor and wife; also, there are great people to fellowship with.

Anyways, you get the idea.  Counting your blessings is really a great thing and one, I believe, God would have us do daily.

Oh yeah!  One more blessing.....I have a job.

God's blessings to you all!



  1. You are also on my list when I count my blessings. I hope you know that I will always be here if you need me. Sorry to hear your bad news, but like you said - God is always in control. He always provides and meets our needs in such unexpected ways. His goodness towards us in immeasurable. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sure do miss you guys! Thanks for your sweet visit the other night. We need to it again soon when ALL of us can socialize. Time for you to make a new blog post!
