Counting Blessings

I love the hymn that the title of this post is inspired by ~ Count Your Blessings..."name them one by one!"

Did this godly hymn writer keep a journal of thanks? There must be many who have done so in the past ~ what a legacy to leave behind...your thankfulness journal! Have you begun? It really is powerful and encouraging ~ it might just "surprise you what the Lord has done"!

319. Two youngest playing a duet on the piano ~ warms my heart! :)


320. Flowers lovingly picked for me ~ first of the season!


321. And then I find that another has been secretly added ~ how sweet! (Thanks Calvin!)


322. Fun in a restaurant ~ for both of us! :)




323. The last of the hot chocolate...




324. And children to enjoy drinking it!




325. Front door welcome ~ a long ago yard sale find.




326. The sound of music ~ brings joy to my heart.




327. Quiet "together" moments...




328. Blonde hair to braid...




329. A treat from a dear friend...




Many Blessings,
Camille

J ~ You are so sweet to encourage me in this new photography world...the best part is the "delete" button and being able to preview...nothing like it was in the "good old days" of my younger years. Thanks so much! Another blessing from HIM! :)

I love the braids in your daughter's hair. I remember braiding my daughter's hair when it was longer. Love all the thoughts you have on your thankfulness. We need to be more thankful for all we have. God is good!! Have a great day!

I love the Sundial Dreams music (insert tear/happy here). I playing it loud cuz nobody but me is here right now and it lifts up my spirit. I haven't been feeling well for a few days, am getting better, though. Hugs!

Camille said...

Dear Becky ~ So sorry to hear you are not feeling well...hang in there and get better soon! Oh...I dreamed of doing braids and after three boys didn't think I would get to ~ fun times! :) I am so glad you are enjoying the music...

Love,
Camille
