Counting My Blessings Day 30

30 days of blessings posted, 30 days of being reminded by God of what is important, 30 days of happiness.
This is the last post of the month and what a way to end it.
I was blessed to win a treat!

Melissa at Overwhelmed By His Blessings had a $25.00 Burger King gift card give away and I was the winner! Wow I could not believe it.
It is such a blessing;  we get a lunch or dinner out, and for us that is a big deal, we rarely eat out anywhere, we hope to find a day we can take Colby and Shelby with us for a special day.
Thank You so much Melissa! You made my day.
This month I have been Overwhelmed by His Blessings too :)

Counting My Blessings Day 29

I can't believe this month is almost gone! I have only one more day of blessings to post, when I started this I was just hoping I would remember to post everyday :) Well I have missed a few, but posted 2 the next day to keep on track.um mm yeah like today :)
Everyday I have asked God to reveal to me what my blessing for today is and everyday this month He has led me to something or someone to be blessed by.

Image from Google search

I was prompted by God to do this, the 1st day of November I was sitting here trying to decide what to post and I asked God for wisdom. Blessings and gratitude are what He wanted me to post, so I did. It has been good for me.
It has been calming and has revealed much to me this month. We often have the tendency to become downtrodden in our struggles and trials, but there are great blessings in those too as I hope I have revealed and learned this month.
My blessing today as I reflect upon this last month is that I am happier than I was a month ago. I have joy for the first time in a long time.
Thank You Lord for showing me by sharing your blessings.

Counting My Blessings Day 28

Today dear ones, I am blessed to have so many people to pray for!

I was in my kitchen getting some popcorn out of the cabinet to make me a bowl, on the cabinet that holds the kernels of corn 2 red ribbons are tied to the handle, the ribbons are off a bag of popcorn Marcia sent to me with the gift card she sent when I was the winner of her White Christmas in July party. When I took the ribbons off the bag I tied them on the cabinet handle to remind me of Marcia. ..and it's cute and they match my kitchen :) Often when I touch them I say a prayer for her. I do that with all sorts of things I have been given, when I scrap with paper Aymee sent me I say a prayer for her, when I pull out an embellishment form an envelope or matchbox swap I think of Donna or Kim and say a prayer, when I see my little pompom chicks or my fall pixie, I pray for Elizabeth, when I see the rabbit on my desk I thank God for Angela, whenever I see the color Tiffany Blue Trisha is who I think of and pray for, when I use my border punch I think I Christine, when I reach in my ribbon box that was made by Peg, I talk to God about her, when I use the ribbon inside Karen and Caitlin jump to mind, Casey is all around me in the books and bits she has sent my way so always prayers for her.
I could fill pages with all the people I pray for, do I pray every day for every one? No, sadly I do not, but I do pray for someone everyday.
Can I pray for you today?

If you would like me to pray for you or with you, but do not wish to make it a public comment please email me I am at jennysheart@gmail.com
 God has blessed me with so many wonderful friends and family to include in prayer, I would love to add you too.

Counting My Blessings Day 27

Today my friends, I have been blessed with the gift of time.
I had time today to have breakfast with Lee, to take a nap and read a book, watch a football game, cook and enjoy supper with Lee, blog here and visit many others.
A simple day. Filled with simple pleasures. Which I am blessed to enjoy and take comfort in.
Thank You Lord for this day, I am blessed yet again by your grace.
My mom made our stockings, mine was made so long ago I was just a kid,at least 25 years ago if not longer.  Lee's was made 15 years ago in "Cowboys" colors...I know sheesh, but that is what he wanted and that is what she made.
We don't have a fireplace and the shelf we used to use broke, so we are using command strips on the grandfather clock. It works for us :)

Merry Christmas

Counting My Blessings Days 25 and 26 :)

Hey Y'all Happy Pink Saturday to ya.
Be sure to stop in and visit Beverly and all the other pinkies at Beverly's blog How Sweet The Sound

I crashed yesterday! I never even got online, I came home from working "BLACK FRIDAY" and went right to bed. I slept 12 solid hours! Well I had been up for almost 48 hours so I am not surprised.

SO my blessing for yesterday was that I was blessed to have a decent day at work.
Black Friday is a rough day for everyone who works retail!
I was running a register most of my shift and helping customers and my co-workers, I got cussed at only twice and only had about 15 people with really bad attitudes. Not too bad for the busiest shopping day of the year.
So I was blessed, it was not too bad on me and at 8am when I got off I went to breakfast with my friend Julie and we had a nice relaxing time.

For my blessing today I have to share with you the women in my life. My sisters. I am blessed to be the oldest of our clan. I am the big sister to 4 sisters and 2 sisters in love.

Beth is next in line, she is wonderful, her heart is so big and if you ever need anything organized she is your girl! She is a great cook, like me loves to travel, works hard and loves Snow babies :)

Left to right is our Mom, Beth, Joanne, Laura, Me and Amanda.

The next one born was Christy, she passed away at 1 day old.
She has been an Angel since 1976
She is forever in our hearts.

Next is Joanne. She is the mother to Colby and Shelby. This woman is a wonderful mama! She is so creative and can decorate a cake like a professional! She is so kind and always there in a flash if anyone needs anything.She has a quick wit and always makes us laugh.

Last born is Laura. She was born with clear blue eyes and white blond hair. She is beautiful inside and out. She is also very clever and creative.
She loves to travel and ride roller coasters. She is easily the most crafty of all of us and has a wonderful sense of humor and smile.

Then we have my sister in love Amanda.
She is the mother of Layden. She met my brother at the gym and we are all so glad she did. He loves her so much and so do we.
Her laugh makes you smile, she loves the Twilight movies and books so we share that passion :)
I used to worry I would not get to know her very well since she is 16 younger than I;  but know her and love her I do! Another creative sista!

And my other sister in love Angela

who I wrote about last week...
How much I miss her!

These ladies are my blessing everyday! I know how much they care for me and how much I love them.
They are talented, creative, funny, lovely, loving, and fun.
God blessed me greatly when he made me the oldest sister to all these
beautiful girls.
Thank you Father for my best friends.
I am blessed.

Counting My Blessings Day 23

I am Blessed to have had the last 2 days off, the next 2 are gonna be a killer!
I was blessed with the time to enjoy myself at home and get a few errands done today here in town.
I took some of the time I was off to put up my Christmas Tree :)
                                        DON"T GROAN!
I work retail and I am working all weekend, so this way I get to enjoy it.

Here is a peek.
The last two years we did not really celebrate Christmas, it has been too depressing. This year I want to, Lee really doesn't but I hope he changes his mind. When I stopped working on the tree this morning, I prayed and I felt so good. I hope Jesus likes my display of Celebration for his Birthday.
I am not done with it, but had other things to get done so I stopped for today.

 I cannot imagine I will have time to be online tomorrow, so I am gonna set up an automatic post. PRAY FOR ME Y"ALL :) I work 11pm to 7 am tonight into tomorrow then I have to rush home, finish the food, go to my parents house and hour away, eat, do the secret Santa names, do Colby's Christmas list and be back at work by 9:30 tomorrow night until 8 Friday morning oh and I need to sleep in there somewhere, so pray God will sustain me through the festivities and Black Friday.
Thank You Father for blessing me with gifts; the tree was a gift from Laura and many of the ornaments were gifts from family and friends.The greatest gift was the birth of your Son, thank you most of all for Him.

Counting My Blessings Day 22

Today is a cool rainy day here in Virginia, how is your day shaping up?
My blessing for today is one of humility. It's a bit of a story so be ready to read :)
It started with Pie.

Disclaimer...teehee this photo of Amanda at Thanksgiving last year has nothing to do with my story today, I just think it's funny, she was 8 months pregnant and the only one cutting pie :)
That is her mom Jamie leaning to the right.
Even more funny or sad depending on how you look at it, is that there were 6 more pies on the counter!
OK here is my blessing .
I have on occasion gone to a church in my neighborhood.
Rock Church of Franklin, Virginia.
The atmosphere, worship and pastors are great.
The last time I went the greeter asked me to fill out a visitor card and I did.
During the announcements the pastor reminded everyone of their Say Hi with a Pie event, they take a pie to a person in our city, just say hi and visit a minute.
Well sad as I am I was hoping and praying we would be a home they would visit. Not for the pie I am not that shallow, but for the comfort or fellowship or I don't know a bunch of reasons, I just really wanted to be a home they would visit.
I was praying for it all Sunday morning.
Well they did not visit our home and I was a bit bummed over it.
But as I was watching the football game I told God I was sorry, sorry for feeling jealous over a home they did visit and sorry for being selfish, I have Him to sustain me and He is all I need.
I went to bed and went to work later that night.
I was working in the frozen foods section stocking ice cream, listening to Christmas music, thinking and talking to God.
Ken who is a guy who used to work with me and is a member of Rock Church well he  came over to where I was, we chat every time he stops in for a minute or 2 we were talking about ice cream and how good Blue Bunny ice cream is and how glad I am they make a variety of flavors with Splenda so Lee and I can have some and it's good :) and I always ask after his wife, she is in such poor health, her name is Monica, add her to your prayer list for health and healing, she is very bad off physically.
Recently diagnosed with MS and had a litany of other illness.
ANYHOW
Ken says, you know the church does this visit and pie thing every once in a while **(I did not say a word about me wanting to be a home they chose)** and he tells me the Pastor and his wife stopped by their house that morning to check on them and leave a pie. He continues to tell me Monica has been unable to use the bathroom for days and they were having to use a catheter on her and she was miserable. Well they did not tell the Pastor anything about this issue.
He asked to pray for them before they left and while he was praying he says "Lord I feel like there is a specific breakthrough that is going to be needed for Monica, I ask that you take care of that this day"
They hugged and left.
About 15 minutes later she used the bathroom for the first time in days!
And has been going ever since.
Ken said to me "See God even helps someone as mean as me" (which he is NOT) and he said it has changed how he is feeling about everything.
Praise God for miracles.He healed the problem and released the bond it was having over her.
Thank You Lord.
Ken was so relieved that she was able to go, it was so much better for her than having to use a catheter.
So my lesson in all this is God had a plan and if my house had been one they decided to pay a visit to, maybe they would not have gone to Ken and Monica and Monica would not have been prayed for and healed. 
In the grand scheme of things I guess that seems small but it was huge to them and humbling to me.
Thank You Father for humbling me before you...again.
I love You Lord. 
I am BLESSED.

Hey Y'all :)
I am so glad you are here.
Please leave a comment so I can come and visit you, just say hey, you don't have to write anything else, it'll give me a link back to you.

I am blessed today by blogland!
First I have seen so much talent and creativity, I love it all!

Second I have been in search of a Christmas background and it had to be free... I have found tons of them that are great! BUT none that just screamed ME ME PICK ME...teehee
SO while cruising around blogland this morning I visited
Susie at 1st Floor Flat she had "Retro Man" and I just had to have him :)
She has all sorts of Free backgrounds and extras.
Here is another one I really liked.

Thank You Susie!
Her blog  has halloween background, but don't let that scare you away, she has goodies galore.
So I am blessed by an act of kindness. She does not have to spend time making these and offering them for our use, but she does and that my friends is a blessing to me.
How are you blessed today?

Counting My Blessings Day 20

20 days of blessings counted so far.
20 posts in a row, which is a lot for me, I am not an everyday poster, so this has been a new challenge for me. A good one though.
Today I have 2 blessings.
First I have a friend at work,

 I love her a bunch.
She is a blessing to me and I am thankful to have her in my life.
She surprised me with a gift this morning. I have a really hard time with my hands in winter weather, they crack and split no matter how much lotion I use, she found a pair of Aloe infused gloves and gave them to me to try and help my poor hands. That was so kind and thoughtful of her.
Thanks Julia, I am putting them on before I go to bed.
Next,
I am so glad we have TV preachers and TBN.
Oh I know some of them are shall we say...extreme, but others...they are spot on, to me at least.
This morning I was not able to make it to church, so I had the TV on and I had my pick of messages to choose from, so thank you Lord for calling some of these men to your ministry and blessing them.
Because you have led them, I draw closer to you Lord.
I am blessed today!

I count among my many blessings all of my brother-in-laws.
I have 5 all together.
3 are my sister's husband's and 2 are my husband's brother's.
They are all good men whom I love dearly. I could call any of them and they would be there for me in a minute.
Most all of them are Saved by God's grace and I take comfort in knowing we will spend eternity together.
 The one's that aren't know all about Jesus, they have to come to him in their own time.
We pray for them, well I pray for all of them all the time, but extra prayers for them.

Steve is Beth's husband.
He is holding Layden the day after he was born.

 This is Jay, he is married to Joanne and the father of Colby and Shelby.
 This photo was taken on the day of Laura's wedding, such a handsome pair :)

This is Patrick, Laura's husband.
This photo was last summer at mom and dad's house.

This is Curtis and Angela
Curtis is Lee's younger brother.
I don't have a photo on my computer of Lee's youngest brother Danny.
I love all these men and I am blessed to have them in my life.
You are all good men and I love you all bunches and bunches.
Curtis and Danny I miss y'all a ton.
Thank You Lord for giving me such great men to have as brothers.

Counting My Blessings Day 16

Counting my blessings has been so good for me.
Thank You Lord for leading me everyday.

Today He has led me to Angela.
 My sister-in-love. She is married to Curtis, Lee's brother.
The day I met her 4 years ago was the day we were leaving Arkansas (where they live) to go to Texas for Lee's Mother's burial. You could not have picked a harder time to meet. We clicked as soon as we met and have loved each other every minute since :)
Let me tell you, I am BLESSED beyond measure to have her in my life.
Her Faith amazes me. Her love is unconditional and her heart is as big as all outdoors.
She gave me another niece and nephew. .
In their family we have Blair, (Curtis' daughter)
 Kameron,and Alana.(Angela's kiddos)
(I am missing a photo of Blair on my computer)

                                       Kameron  love that boy!
Alana she is beautiful inside and out.

Her kids are great and her daughter has her heart.
I love them all so much.
More than they know.

                                         Curtis and Angela

She loves her Lord, her family and birdhouses, Jeff Gordon and motorcycle rides with her husband.
I want to ask all who pray to include her healing in your prayers.
She was injured in a fall a few weeks before we met 4 years ago.
She lives in such debilitating and excruciating pain, there are no words to describe what she has lived with every day for years.
 I pray daily for healing and full restoration of her body.
We are BLESSED to have these lovely people in our lives. I love them all.
Thank You Father for bringing us all together.
I wish we lived closer, I miss them all so much.

Today I am blessed by my little fur baby.
We can't have children, so we have Cody.
He is really Lee's dog, he adopted him from a shelter for my Christmas gift
6 years ago, Cody likes me, but he ADORES Lee.
He will sit on the couch and snuggle up to Lee and gaze up at him.
It is so silly.

My little pup in my Hosta bed. His hair IS out of his eyes now :)
He is terrified of plastic bags and cardboard boxes.
Why? We have no idea.
He loves to chase a ball inside, but will not chase a ball outside.
He likes pickles and cabbage.
He hates to be left alone.
We love him and we thank God he blessed us with the little guy.
He brings us joy everyday.

Counting My Blessings Day 14

My favorite Blessings are my nephews and nieces.
This one here is my Squirt.
I held him when he was 30 minutes old and it was love at first sight.
He has held my heart ever since.
I called him little squirt that minute; he was "little squirt" until he told me he was not little anymore, he was about 5 when that happened, he is now  7.
 So from then on  it is just "squirt" :)
This is us last Thanksgiving making his Christmas List.
We do it together after dinner at "pie time".
He has such a heart for Jesus.
I pray he always will.
One night during his prayers he prayed that his cousin "baby nugget"
(other wise known as Layden)
"Would grow up to be a strong man of God."
That took my breath away.
I love you with all my heart Squirt,
may you always know that .
May you always walk with God.
I love you infinity + 1.
You are my blessing everyday.
I thank you Lord for giving him to us.
Blessing.

Today I am blessed to be able to spend it with you.
God has blessed us with another Pink Saturday with Beverly.
For my Pink today I made these little lollipops. I made them as part of my gift for a baby shower. Chrissy is the mama she is a lovely lady I work with.
I could not find any baby washcloths that were solid colors, the only ones my store had have polka dots and stripes, not nearly as cute, the last ones I did were blue and white very cute these not so much, but they still turned out ok.

What a blessing this little baby boy will be to his family, he has 2 sisters and a mama and daddy who are waiting for him. He is due to arrive at the beginning of January. I can't wait to meet him.

Thank You to all who serve and who have served our country.
You are a blessing to me.

Counting My Blessings Day 10

I am blessed to have the ability to read.
I LOVE to read.  My love of reading began when I was very young, my mom tells of me coming home from school in 1st grade and sitting her down to read to her. I remember when I was small (under 10)  we ALWAYS had a bedtime yes even in summer WHEN IT IS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE! Talk about torture!  Well my mom and dad did have 5 kids and they needed a break at night :) at any rate, my mom told me I had to go to bed but I did not have to go to sleep, I could read until it got dark. What a world was opened to me then. I read Freckle Juice and The Hardy Boys, Fudge, The Wizard of Oz and The Secret Garden and my favorite was always Nancy Drew!
My love of reading continues today.
I just finished reading this book, oh my it was wonderful, I loved it!

                                Photo from Amazon

Ronda Rich wrote a book that spoke right to my heart! I laughed I cried I learned a lot, and I related to this book a ton, it really is spot on about Southern women.
So I am thankful to God for my sight and the ability to read and I am blessed to have parents that instilled such a passion for reading in me from an early age.
They are both readers too.

Counting My Blessings Day 9

Today I am blessed to have Leigh in my life. She is my best friend. She is also my cousin though we may as well be sisters. I got a card she sent me in the mail today. It was just what I needed. She is a wonderful woman with a kind heart and lovely laugh. We have known each other all her life. I miss her since we don't live as close as we once did.
This is Leigh and her husband James.
I am blessed to know her and will be thankful for her all the days of my life.
Love you!

Hey Y'all.
Today and I blessed to live in a country that gives me the right to vote!
I am thankful that I have the ability and privilege to vote in any election in my city and state.
I went today to the little box and cast my votes.
I know in this day and age a lot of people think that one vote won't matter.
I still think it does, so I cast mine every chance I get.
Thank You Lord for giving me parents who taught me the responsibility of being an informed and involved citizen.
Have you voted  in your area today?

Counting My Blessings Day 7

I almost missed today.
I have worked 6 days in a row, I came in this morning and crashed!
I slept all day!
So today I am thankful for and blessed by rest.
God set aside one day a week for us to rest.
Our bodies need to be still from a week of work.

Image from internet search
...And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it... Genisis 1:2-3.
We forget that sometime don't we.
So today I am blessed to be rested.
Thankful for a husband who knows I need to rest.

Today I am thankful for my husband.
Lee is a good man and I love him so much.
The other day we were talking about how we met. We both remember the day exactly. 16 years together 15 years married.


Things are tough for us right now, and they have been for a few years now, BUT through all this mess God had brought us so much closer together.
Lee will be the first to tell you that we are stronger as a team.
I could write about him all day, but I won't :)
So today I am thanking God for bringing us together and blessing me with a man who loves me just as I am.
I love you....Always.

Counting My Blessings Day 5 on Pink Saturday & A WINNER

Hello All, How are you today?
I am loving the cool weather we are having here in Virginia. FINALLY!
I am NOT a summer girl at all I love the fall and winter.

You know since I started on the 1st counting my blessings everyday, I have felt so peaceful even with some of the really hard times in life we are having, I really do have that "peace that passes all understanding" the Bible talks about.
Today I am thankful for Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.
I am blessed by Beverly because she had the idea to host a weekly party called Pink Saturday.
About a year or so ago I stumbled onto her site and loved all the fun found there. In fact one of the reasons I started my blog was to participate.  I have met so many wonderful women through her idea. I love all the creativity I find there. I look forward to it every week and when I come home on Saturday mornings I get my drink and settle in to head there and start checking out all the wonderful things that  everyone decides to share.
I can honestly say it has been a blessing to me to have my little haven to visit every week. Thank You Beverly. You are a blessing to many.

Now for the winner of my little 'ole give away thank you all for your comments. I wish I had a gift for each of you.
                                              
                                                          TRISHA!

PHOTO FROM TRISHA'S BLOG

I love Trisha to bits, she was one of my first followers and she is so beautiful inside and out.
We have a lot in common, and I am so happy the random name generator had her as #1.
Trisha look for my email.
CONGRATULATIONS!

Counting My Blessings Day 4

It really is better to give than to receive.
Oh don't get me wrong, I love to be the recipient too :)
But there is such a good feeling that comes from making some one else feel special.
Jesus does that for me. He gave the greatest gift of all. He gave himself for you and for me.
I forget that sometimes.
I have been blessed to have been given some great gifts by some great bloggers this year, I have made new friends all over the USA.
I have had such a good time getting to know some very talented and creative women.

I know my little give away is small, I wish it could be so much more, but I hope the person who gets it is made to feel special.
You still have time if you would like a chance, I will pick a "winner" tomorrow morning when  I get home from work. Just leave a comment here letting me know you would like to win it or on my October 29th Pink Saturday post.
I hope you have a great day.

Counting My Blessings Day 3

Today I am blessed, because I have a job.
I work for the worlds largest retailer, you know the one everyone hates, but everyone goes to...  the one Sam Walton started.
I am a Customer Service Supervisor, so my job is loads of fun! (insert sarcasm)
I am thankful to God that I am employed. I am glad it is in a place I have made friends and have met many people of great Faith. We talk about Jesus often and I love that I can do that.
Oh don't get me wrong if I could find a job out of retail, I would be gone in a second. But for now, this is where God put me, so this is where I am thankful to be.

My Blessings Day 2

Today I am thankful and blessed.
I am thankful today that I am saved by grace.
I love knowing Jesus as my savior.

Image from google
I love the knowledge that no matter what He is there for me.
My dad told me once that when times are so tough, if you just imagine sitting with Jesus and talking to Him it will get better.
I often picture in my minds eye sitting on the beach with Jesus on my right and my dad on my left and my husband behind me. He holds my hand, sometimes He holds me and just listens. Sometimes we just watch the waves. It comforts me and refreshes me beyond all words.
I am Blessed to live in a country where I can freely practice my Christian faith, without fear. I love my Jesus, My God, My Holy Spirit.
My 4 year old niece said it best "Jesus is my favorite."
If you need Him and think you can't find Him, just look into your heart, you will find Him waiting there for you.
Thank You Jesus for loving me.

Thanksgiving

For the month of November, I am inspired to count my blessings.

I am gonna try to post my blessings and thankfulness every day this month.
The song from White Christmas comes to mind..
"...I fall asleep counting my blessings..."
Today is a hard day for me, so I am gonna try to turn that around by counting the good and not dwelling on the hard.

I am Thankful today for getting to spend last night with my family.
We took the kids out and had such a good time.
Mickey Mouse and Waluigi.
They were so excited and had such a good time.
All the grown ups did too.
we had good food, a great walk around the neighborhood, happy smiles and sugar highs.
How can one not be blessed and thankful for that.
Thank You Father for my family.
I love and adore each of them.
Thank You Father for each person reading this too.
Let them all know they are loved by You .
