Count Your Blessings

As Thanksgiving draws near, my mind has gone often to the things for which I am thankful. If you know anything about me, you know that being thankful is a theme of mine. I think a thankful heart is to be nurtured and exercised.

Today let’s count our blessings. Can we write a list of 100 things we are thankful for? I’ll start mine today and post it later.

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
