What are Your Blessings?

I've been thinking a lot lately about the many blessings God has lavished on me . . . of course, the first is His love, grace and forgiveness! He has also blessed me with an amazing husband - we met on a volcano and have been married for 31 years! We have two grown children and one daughter-in-law - all blessings from the hand of God! I have three wonderful grandsons . . . most certainly blessings from God who I am able to spend time with each week - absolutely incredible blessings!

I have wonderful parents, an amazing sister, great brothers, been gifted with fantastic in-laws; I have a family I love and who loves me! I have friends! I have a house to live in . . . it is actually the house my grandparents built; my dad was born in this house and my family has always lived here. I have been blessed with a church where God's Word is taught by pastors who actually live what they preach! I am able to write, and I count all of you who read my blogs as great blessings, too!

These are just some of the amazing blessings God has lavished on me! I read a study which said when people take time to think about: to savor the blessings in their lives, they are much more happy! I find great joy in "savoring" the blessings of God. And, I know one of the most important things I can do as a grandma is to help my grandsons learn to be people who think about ans savor the blessings God has given them.

As you go through this day, take time to think about; to savor the blessings God has given to you, too!
