It’s another of those old bits of advice we hear all the time. Maybe we should heed it. Maybe life is better when we focus on what’s right and what’s good instead of constantly dwelling on our problems. Maybe the simple act of counting our blessings can make a difference in our lives.
No maybe about it. Counting our blessings does work wonders. Blessings, in fact, tend to multiply as we start counting them each day.
While browsing around this morning, I found a lot of inspiring thoughts about blessings and the importance of counting them each day.
Perhaps the most thought-provoking one was this:
How would you feel if you woke up tomorrow
with only the things you were thankful for today?
I also found this “blessing jar”. What a beautiful idea. I’m making one today, and each day I’ll add to it. My hope is that when life’s skies seem cloudy or storms arise, I can sit quietly with my blessing jar, take each out, and truly name my blessings one by one.
Life itself is a blessing. Today, let’s be grateful and give thanks at every opportunity.
“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
– G.K. Chesterton –
Thank you for visiting. Have a beautiful — and BLESSED day!
