Counting Blessings

1. I got up this morning at 5, without feeling too super tired.
2. Dinner (spaghetti sauce) was in the crockpot by 8.
3. I came down with a migraine at 9:30, forcing me to shut down for the day.
4. Transportation was provided for the girls to go to Bright Lights.
5. Childcare was provided for my children by their Grandma Carol, allowing me to rest.
6. Delivery of a meal I made for a new mom was provided for me by someone for whom it was not out of the way.
7. Though I didn’t think I should pray for my headache to go away, right after I talked with Him, it did.
8. I got to hear the tail end of the lesson at Bright Lights, a powerful reminder of His presence with me, all the time, everywhere; no burning bush needed.
9. There are two books for me at the library waiting to be picked up- Jan Karon and Andrew Murray are dear friends.
10. I received a letter in the mail from my dearest and only pen pal.
Thank You, LORD, for all these blessings and more.

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads
And one by one I count them
As they slumber in their beds

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings
