Weekly Gratitude Journal

The weather is cold and clear, my favorite kind of autumn weather. We are hosting a dinner at our house tonight for our church leadership, one of my favorite things to do. I've got things to get done for that, but I wanted to be sure to post my weekly gratitude journal first. Giving thanks to God is life giving and life changing. It helps to maintain equilibrium and focus during life's ups and downs. I challenge you to start the habit of writing down at least three things each day that you are thankful for.

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 walk with my grand babies
-the two middle grandgirlies getting to spend the night at our house

-our eight grandkids

-youngest granddaughter saying "I love you"
-God speaking to my heart, "I am firmly held"

-our nephew who is a constant help and encouragement
-a really sweet walk/talk with Jesus and rainy weather that gave way to blue skies for my walk
