The fact that you woke up this morning, that you were able to get out of your bed, take a shower, and put on your clothes. The fact that you were able to get to and from work safely; the fact that you got home to a house/apartment still standing, nothing taken from there; the fact that you have a job to go to each day each day, food on the table to eat, clothes on your back, the ability to read this thread and be in your right mind, how about the ability to see and read this thread; the fact that God has given us GRACE; and especially the fact that God sent his only begotten Son to redeem us of our sins. These are just the blessings we take for granted on a daily basis. I am sure we can come up with so many more.

We are blessed by the smile of a stranger, the laughter of our children, the scent of flowers carried on the breeze, a hug when we think no one cares ..We are blessed with every breath we take and with every beat of our heart....

I am blessed right now with this uplifting thread..Thank you antredd

Thank you, Antredd for sharing and thank you Father for all your blessings that You shower us everyday. Thank You for the life that You have given us to lift You up in praise and to be Your people.

God bless.

We are blessed and sacred because we are created out of Love. Nothing can be better than that.
