22 Blessings (in counting) and No Complaints!

I find that sometimes in life, I spend way too much time complaining than praising God for all the blessings He has given me. I complain so much that all the good seems to disappear and I am left with my sad depressing thoughts and feelings.  It is so important that we remember what God has done for us. So I decided that I was going to stop complaining and start thanking God for all the blessings. Since we are in a new year, I wanted to start it off with 22 blessings ( and counting) God has given me that I am thankful for.

  1. Life
  2. Health
  3. Family
  4. Extended family
  5. Friends
  6. Education
  7.   A job
  8. Low gas prices (they are a blessing)
  9. Heat (especially thankful during these cold days and nights of winter).
  10. A home to live in
  11. A vehicle to drive
  12. Food to eat
  13. Clean water to drink
  14. The internet (couldn’t have a blog without it)
  15. My dog
  16. A gym membership
  17. My winter coat ( it has been in the single digits this winter and my coat keeps me warm).
  18. A new year (2018)
  19. safety
  20. The year 2017 (that year taught me a lot)
  21. my knee brace (it’s a long story)
  22. People that truly care about me

I encourage you to make a list of all blessings that God has given you. When we actually stop and think about it we have A LOT to be thankful for.

Until next time,

Elyse
