What Blessings Do You See?

Blessings come in all shapes and sizes. Often, there are blessings all around us, but we do not recognize them. The chaos of life distract us from what is most important. Today, let us focus on God's blessings, great and small.

A few blessings from The Perdue Zoo:

~Giggling, squealing grandson makes my heart smile:)
~Granddaughter telling Papa, "I love you mostest and that's all!"
~Families coming together in love with hearts full of grace and mercy!
~God's beautiful creation! Over the last few weeks we have had deer playing in and around our yard late in the evening.
~Friends with hearts full of love!
~Watching GOD bless those who have sacrificed much many years ago!

What blessings to do you see in your zoo/home?

Praying each of you have a Christmas full of unexpected blessings!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Seeing the little neighbor girl down the hall this morning (I had even said a prayer saying that I hoped I would see her and her mother).

That we get to leave for Christmas to see my family on WEDNESDAY!!

Having a few issues and my husband being willing to fix them with me.

Songs and stories that have helped me shape my faith.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!


I'm not sure I can name all the blessings, but I am very grateful that I on any given day I can walk out of my front door and experience the most amazing scenery...God's creation, at no charge. It is so awesome the priceless things he's made available to all.

Surrounded by daily blessings ... occasionally some one unplugs the cord. We gather our wits, Thank God for all, despite the glitch.

Love your thankful share, sweet friend.

Merry Christmas

Oh thank you Andrea for another beautiful post. In a world where most of the news is so bad, I don't even like to watch it; it is a blessing to read an uplifting post like this. God's blessings are so many, I can't begin to count them, but, I am thankful for them all. Merry Christmas! And God Bless You!
