As I sat down to write today after eating a really yummy breakfast with my wonderful wife. I was finishing up my third cup of coffee (shhh, don’t tell my doctor) and talking to my wife about all the things we are blessed by and with. We talked about our family, our daughters, in-laws and all the people that bless and pray for us daily. So I decided to veer off of my typical posting today to write about these wonderful blessings.
I looked up the definition of blessing and it is to have Gods favor and protection in your life. That hit home for me because without that we can wander through life, fighting things, having troubles and not knowing why those things happen to us. As my wonderful mother used to say to me as a child “son, count your blessings” everyday. I take that serious and do my best to count them so I stay grounded and never forget where I came from and most importantly, where I want to go. I will not get there without the list below and Gods grace, mercy and guidance.
I to made a quick list of the things that are a blessing in our lives. I could write for days, but these are the highlights and top items. I challenge you to make a list of the top five people, things, blessings that God have bestowed upon you. It will give you a start to the day, a restart to a tough day and bring you back down to the reality that regardless of the situation you are facing, you are blessed!
1- I am blessed to have such a wonderful, forgiving and loving God in my life.
2- I am blessed to have the most wonderful wife, mother of my children and life partner. We are ride or die and walk through this life hand in hand.
3- I am blessed to have two beautiful daughters that are so hard working, family oriented and will do anything for their mom and dad.
4- I am blessed with the best group of extended family, friends and co-workers that are so supportive and would drop what they have going at the drop of a hat.
5- Lastly, I am blessed to have awesome spiritual guides, angels and protectors that lead me as I continue to grow my faith, spiritual health, physical health and outlook on life.
I want to thank everyone that reads my blog posts, gives me feedback, likes it, dislikes it, etc. We live, learn and love life and know that God has a plan to constantly bless us as we do those things.
Numbers 6: 24-26, The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
