Blessings Update

So, I did it. For a week, I charted ten blessings a day. Weeell, sort of. I missed a few days in a row, so I sat down and made up for the ones I missed. Which put me at coming up with 30 blessings in one sitting. Now, I’ve done the journaling blessings thing before, but I’ve never forced myself to think of 30 blessings in one sitting. When you think of it, that’s a lot. But it reminds me that I have so much to be grateful for. It really helps when I am getting discouraged or feeling sad about something, to pull out my list of blessings and see how incredibly amazing God has been to me. I intend to try to keep it up, and I would highly recommend it to anyone going through hard times of their own!

  2. That is so awesome! Sometimes it does seem like a lot to think of thirty things to be thankful for in one sitting, but I don’t know if this is how you felt, but I know for myself after I get going, I start realizing just how much their really is to be thankful for and then before you know it, thirty things passes really quickly.
    Just a suggestion, it would be a fun post to share some of the things you are thankful for if you wanted to. Just a thought for a post some time. 😉

    1. Definitely! And I didn’t realize how much I take “the little things” for granted. Blessings don’t always have to be the things like, “So and so was healed of a terminal illness today!” (Obviously, that would be huge… :P) But I’ve been trying to focus on *all* the ways that He blesses me, not just in the way of big things. It’s been great!

      Ooh, that is a good idea! You’d have to brace for seeming randomness. 😉

  3. Yay, way to go! It was great for me to get back into it too – I’d been a bit slack, so this was a good challenge! 🙂
    I like Hannah’s idea – you should do some ‘blessings’ posts!
