As many of you know, I had a similiar thread a good while back, and it was so very uplifting not only to me but the many who read it.

I decided to start it again.

Have you been blessed today? If so, share a quick note on your blessings and praises to Our Heavenly Father.

We never know who out there might be in need of our words.

I have been blessed today. My family is healthy and happy, we are bonding closer to one another with each passing day.

My oldest son is happy, Yes, I report happy. He has come so very far from this time last year. I Praise God for His intervention with C and HIs continuing love for him and for my whole family.

I awoke to singing birds and laughing children. What better way to start the day?


I praise You oh Heavenly Father for Your Love and continued support in my everday life.

I praise you for my dear friends whom I would not have made it through this past year without and for the wisdom You imparted to them.

Thank You Father for my friends, and for my family.

now, it's your turn for a quick praise and blessing....

Sure have! We have six healthy children, a place to live, food on the table, clothes on our backs, and transportation. DH has a steady job, and I get to work from home and stay home with my kids. On top of that, my neighbor works out of town every weekend and is desperately in need of someone to take care of her son on the weekends, so at least two weekends a month I'll be getting paid to take care of him, which is easy considering he's 8. Praise God for extra cash!

Oh, yeah. And after four years of praying for my most favorite reality show to come back after cancellation, The Mole finally premiered tonight. I like to think God answered this one especially for me, lol.

Seriously, though. Life is good, and I'm grateful to God for it.

Yes, and amen, aiangel_writer!
~I am blessed because this morning as I woke God put a song in my heart and He gave me lips to praise Him.

~He has given me a family and friends as a blessing to share and serve this day.
~I know that today He will lead someone new into my life to be a part of the blessings He has bestowed upon my life to share with them in word or deed.

~For He has given His word to be a the lamp unto my/our feet and the light upon my/our path......

~There are so many things to be thankful for in every new day that He awakens and gives to us....

~~Praise You, Heavenly Father, for blessing us so richly with Your presence of every waking moment of this day, for each and every life.
May they see the print of Your hand and love of Your heart upon them in the simpleness of this day and praise Your holy name.

~For this is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!!!

Blessings to all!!!

What better way to start the day than to awake to an email from a dear, dear friend!

June was thrilled to find a lovely email from someone she had not heard from in a while, but who has certainly remained in her heart! She plans on answering that email later on today, but thought she would just mention it here, first.

There is no better way to start one's day than to know that those we love and care about are doing well and thought to share their happiness and love with us...

It absolutely made my day, and yes, I suppose one could say that I am truly "blessed" to have felt so glad in having heard from such a dear and wonderful friend. Whoever she may be!



Take gentle care, to all my friends!

-June

I am blessed each and every morning to wake up and realize that God has granted me one more day to grow in faith and to acknowledge His presence in every one of my daily chores, and to pass His love to whomever I come into contact with throughout this day...A special blessing this morning was to awake to the sweet smell of fresh coffee and breakfast being prepared by someone else..My youngest daughter and her children came in late last night, just because.. My prayer is that all of you are blessed today and that you pass your own blessings out with love and encouragement and smiles to all you meet today..

Yes, I have been blessed today and every day. I am thankful for another day to live and hopefully glorify God witlh my life on the earth, to grow in my faith and knowledge of Him. I am thankful for my family and friends, my health, the ability to work and hopefully have a positive influnence on the children in my classroom, for the opportunities to serve others, and for the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of God's handiwork. I am most of all blessed to continue to know the love of God that He displayed in giving His Son for us. God bless.

Great thread, aiangel!
June has no idea how that managed to happen, (she tends to speak in the first person sometimes when she feels like casting off her June persona!) although she nonetheless feels blessed that you feel blessed.

(If ya know what I mean...)
