Weekly Gratitude Journal

I'm trying to get my weekly gratitude post done on time this week-something I've failed to do all too frequently for quite some time. This week in the middle of my list of things I'm thankful for there's something I'm thankful for that did not happen. Yesterday, our middle daughter and son-in-law had an appointment after church so they had our oldest grandson drive his girlfriend and our two younger grandsons home. On the way home they had a car accident. The car was totaled, but no one was hurt, not even a scratch! I'm so very thankful! It makes me wonder how many times God has protected us from danger and harm and we didn't even notice or pause to give Him thanks. There is always something to be thankful for and sometimes it's the things that God did not let happen!

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)
