Weekly Gratitude Journal...


I'm hopping on here before I get too involved in the busyness of the day to quickly post my weekly gratitude journal. I'm not sure anyone really cares about these weekly posts that list the previous week's daily blessings, but it's important to me that some of these words that I fling out here publicly include an acknowledgement that everything I have is an undeserved, unearned gift from God and that I'm so very thankful for each one!

****************
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
 I continue to count my thanks, 
piling up gratitude day by day in my journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)
