Last night, I did something I don't do often enough. I counted my blessings. Not just the normal I'm thankful for food and a house kind of thing, but really. what is a real blessing in my life now? Here are some of the things I came up with
I'm blessed to have people that care about me and want what's best for me
I'm blessed to have friends that make me laugh
I'm blessed with peace and hope and joy and a content heart
I'm blessed with a God who loves me, no matter what, and will never leave me
It doesn't matter what's going on around me, I can choose how I want to respond.
It doesn't matter how everything is playing out, I have a God who will always love me
and that alone, is enough to make me start counting my blessings
