"Count your blessings, name them one by one."
I have been wanting to make a "blessings" jar for quite awhile. Yesterday, I finally got around to doing it. I thought it would serve as a wonderful reminder for all the blessings, big and small, that our family has been given. All I did was plop a ribbon on an empty container and wrote the word BLESSINGS on it. Next to the jar I will keep a pad so that whenever someone has a blessing to write down the paper will be right there ready to be used! On Thanksgiving Day I plan on emptying the jar and my family will each take turns reading the blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon us this year. One of the main reasons I'm doing this is that I wanted to cultivate a more grateful heart and also to always be cognisant of who those blessings come from. I have an idea that our jar is going to be filled to overflowing very soon!
