A few days ago, I stumbled upon on old post that I wrote about blessings.  Well really the post just shared a video that brought the idea of blessings home.  You should go back and watch it again. ( or here’s the link to the video itself).

Anyway, re-watching that video has made me take account of all the things I have to be thankful for, including, but not limited to ( and not in any particular order of thankfulness):

Water, Amy, my health, the boys, having a house, having stuff in my house, having tons of clothes to wear, friends( lots of them, or at least they tell me they are !), followers, knowledge, transportation, freedom, fingers, the ability to type….

The list just goes on and on.

It makes it hard to be negative or to be really unhappy with things with so many good things out there. ( that is not to say, there is not always things that can be made better or improved!)  But really, take a moment today , count up those blessings and in your thankfulness – bless others.


 15-17Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. Colossians 3:15-17The Message (MSG)

What Do You Have To Be Thankful?

Hey, Take a few minutes to watch this video. I have a feeling that all of us have prayed this prayer before, and maybe are right now. If you can’t turn up the audio, the dude in the video prays “Lord, I am really struggling, show me what I have to be thankful for.” Then just watch, and consider your own blessed life.


I have mentioned before how blessed we are to have the simple things.  Rejoice in those, treasure them, and then use them not for yourself, but to make others better.


16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5 16-18

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Psalm 105:1 ESV
