Count Your Blessings

One of my favorite hymns tell us to “Count your blessing, name them one by one,
County your blessing, see what the Lord has done.” We are a people God has rewarded.

Do we have a roof over our heads?
Do we have a source of heat for our homes?
Do we have clothes to protect us from the elements?
Do/did we have a spouse that loves/loved us?
Do we have the means to pay our debts?
Do we have at least one friend in whom we can confide, if necessary?
Are we able to enjoy God’s fall display of color?
Do we have enough to feed our families?
Can we travel freely, if we choose to?

If we can answer ‘yes’ to most of these questions, then we are a blessed people.



  1. Amen to this! The Lord is always reminding us to thank and praise Him--it opens the door to more blessings. Even if it didn't, He sure deserves it!
    Audience of ONE

  2. Amen -- how often I forget just how very blessed I am! I'm blessed because He loves me and if that's all I have, I'm still blessed beyond measure.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
