Weekly Gratitude Journal

If you scroll down to the bottom of this post, you will see that my last gratitude journal entry from yesterday says, "the evidence of God's goodness in my life." If you click on that entry I've linked it to a song called Evidence by Josh Baldwin. This song reminds me of a habit that I've tried to establish in my life-to not let life's difficulties blind me to the truth that through everything God has been faithful and good to me. Writing down at least three "evidences" of God's goodness that I see in each day helps me not to drown in despair during times of difficulty. It's a habit I encourage everyone to develop!

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)

  1. The smell of pot roast, potatoes and carrots! Oh my - brings back wonderful memories for me. My mom made that so often on Sundays. Would start it before church and we would come home to the house smelling delcious! I don't even eat meat these days - but it still sounds wonderful!!

    Cute candle - where did you find that??
