Count Your Blessings: Giving Thanks This Season

When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,

When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

Count your many blessings, name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

– Johson Oatman, Jr. “Count Your Blessings

  I Thessalonians 5:18 – Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Our Blessings:

  • We were able to buy a home in Tennessee. It feels so good to have a place of our own.
  • When the rain came and flooded our basement in MN, we had the funds to pay for the cleanup and loss of rent.
  • God provided new renters paying more rent than the previous ones.
  • Nathan loves his job and has a confidence that I had been lacking the last few years.
  • Deepening friendships here in Tennessee.
  • I’m thankful that we’ve been in positions where we can see God’s hand at work.
  • I get to hug my three kids every day.
