Counting Blessings

by Jesse on January 12, 2012

I have to say I have never felt more blessed in my life then I do right now.

I don’t know about you, but I have heard plenty of sermons about being content where you are. (Not to say that you should strive for more) I have always been the type to have that next goal out there and feeling the need to mark if off my list. Recently I have tried to still have those goals, but live in the present.

Today I am content. Today I am thankful!

No, I don’t live in the house of my dreams.

No, I am not a lady of leisure.

No, I do not have the perfect body.

Sure their are things in my life I would like to tweak a bit, but I am healthy!

My children are healthy.

I get the privilege of home educating my children,

I have a wonderful husband who supports my dreams.

I truly feel like I am living God’s will for my life… or at least I try. =)

While I am far from perfect or having it all together, today I am thankful for the generous blessings from above!

Today I am counting my blessings!

xx

good for you girl! I hear you. That’s why I didn’t do my usual new year resolutions, they were always tinged with a sort of “I am not satisfied, things aren’t good enough”, and I now see that things may not be perfect, but they are GOOD!

Always good to enjoy and be content with the present (she types as she pops a square of chocolate in her mouth and paws through stacks of messy papers on her desk .)
