I am so grateful for blessings, so many blessings. We humans take so many things for granted. We just think they’re going to be there, the same as always. I just have to thank the Good Lord for as many as I can think of.
Living in America while it is still, for the most part, free and while it is still America.
Having plenty of oxygen to breathe. I see so many people that have to have an oxygen tank to help them breathe. And I read something once that said there is very little oxygen in hell so people who end up there will struggle for eternity to get their breath. I’m not going there because I have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and Messiah. Those who haven’t believed in Him will end up in hell. There will be no blessings of God in hell, and oxygen is a blessing. There will be no rest in hell either.
Light is a blessing. Did you know that when God created the heavens and the earth, He created light before He created the sun. Genesis 1:3, Genesis 1:16. I can’t imagine and don’t want to know what it would be like to live without light.
The shower and plumbing. Imagine what life was like back 150 years ago before indoor plumbing and showers. Yuk.
Christian TV and radio. As I said, we still live in a country that we have the freedom to have Christian TV and radio.
Plenty of food. A lot of countries do not have local grocery stores full of food, like the U.S. does.
Water. Clean, drinkable water.
My dear, precious, wonderful, hard-working, diligent, Christian husband. (This list is not in any particular order ’cause he’d be second on the list, after God.)
An electric iron. Convenience is wonderful.
Pinterest. I’m hooked. Enough said.
Family. Mom, sisters, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins. And friends.
The Bible. We are blessed to have several translations. And a Strong’s Concordance. There was a time when “common” people didn’t have access to a Bible. Only the priests/preachers had them and they didn’t preach the entire Bible, so the people didn’t get the entire truth of God’s Word. My new translation is the Messianic Jewish Family Bible. I love it. It puts the Bible in the original Jewish context.
Scented candles. A small blessing but I like scented candles. Hazelnut Cream. Anything autumn scented.
Autumn. My most favorite season.
Rain, nice gentle rain.
White puffy clouds.
Hot cocoa with miniature marshmallows.
Books, mostly Christian books. I am so blessed to have a small library of books.
Sudoku. Keeps my mind somewhat sharper.
I know there are a lot more things I am grateful for that I’ll have to come back to.
I am truly blessed, mostly because I know God loves me and takes good care of me and protects me and pours out His blessings upon me, especially since I also know that I don’t deserve them. He gives His blessings because of His great love. He sent His Son to pay a price I couldn’t pay and then He raised Him from the dead. His work is finished and I can have the promises He gave Abraham, when I believe. Jesus came to restore what we lost when Adam and Eve sinned.
I truly am grateful for my blessings.
