I hope it is ok to do this....if not....let me know...since I borrowed it from Heather
Count your blessings, name them one by one…July 18th, 2007
I had an entire post written out on how many times Satan tried to bring me down yesterday, but instead I am going to list my blessings and forget about the rest.
I am alive.
I have loving and super supportive parents who would do anything for me.
I have a husband who dearly loves me, and tells me so often.
I have 3 beautiful children
I am amazingly gifted in web design, although I have chosen not to do it right now.
I have so many friends, too many to count.
I have an amazing best friend, Laura. She blesses me daily.
I know my savior loves me, even in my darkest times.
I have come to realize that being a Christian doesn’t equal being a doormat, and forgiveness is a long long journey. And thats okay.
I have a church family who honestly blow me away.
I have cancer, but it doesn’t have me.
Choose to start this day looking at your blessings. Trust me, Satan wants nothing more than to steal your joy. Today you have a clean slate, so to speak….
Choose wisely what you fill it with!
Edited to add:I received an email just now pointing me to another cancer blogger who is struggling with the concept of how God could forsake her. If you have a moment, please visit Minerva and leave her a comment. She really could use some encouragement today, especially today. Thanks.
