Blog Your Blessings Sunday #12
Go here if you would like to participate: Blue Panther
Well, I think it is appropriate to ponder on my blessings in 2007 for today's post since it will be the last posting for this group in 2007. Happy New Year to all fellow bloggers and may you realize and thank God for the blessings you receive daily.
Last year at this time, I had gone to the emergency room -- not once but twice! Through all those tests, no one could determine what was the matter with me. Eventually, I found a doctor who thought I might be having trouble with my blood pressure so I am on meds for it and I haven't felt any pains like took me to the hospital in the first place. Since I take one pill (two meds in one) daily, I have taken more meds in the past year than my whole life and I am no spring chicken. So my blessing here is that I am still breathing and have affordable meds available to keep me in check.
The next big blessing is that I have a place to live and am warm inside, unlike many homeless people which I might have become if God hadn't led me to this affordable housing unit.
Good, faithful friends who are there for me no matter what are certainly on this list of blessings. I hope they value my friendship also. This includes those who live near and far and ones I have never met but know from blogging online.
The snow we had to begin this year and the recent teases of snow so far to end it. I LOVE SNOW! To me it is a blessing whether I am shoveling someone's driveway, playing in it or taking photos.
The blessings in the beauty of nature that provides postcards for me and my blog when I go for my walks are definitely on this list
I am sure there are a multitude of blessings that I could list individually but my focus today is on these. I pray that I will be blessed with them in the coming year. That is also my wish for my blogger friends: good health, warm homes, friends,weather they want or need, and enough opportunities for the thing they enjoy most of all
