Weekly Gratitude Journal

Keeping focused on God's goodness, on His blessings in my life is my coping mechanism in these tough times. satan wants me to get off focus. he wants to magnify life's difficulties until they seem bigger than God and His goodness. I choose to magnify the Lord instead! I will bless the Lord. I will continue to cultivate a grateful heart.

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)

-a healthy body
-youngest grandson's giggles
