Weekly Gratitude Post

We were out of town last Monday, so I have two weeks worth of gratitude journaling to post. This Thanksgiving our gatherings may be smaller and quieter but nothing should stop us from seeing the blessings of God in our lives and giving Him thanks. Being grateful and being joyful are related. It is impossible to be both ungrateful and joyful. Why not do an experiment and begin writing down at least three things per day that you are thankful for and see if your joy level increases!
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)
