Counting My Blessings

Today, as with most days, I am counting my blessings. I have had a lot of friends share some pretty bad news with me lately. A former Stamp Club friend has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She is only 33yrs old and has 3 young children at home. My SU demo and good friend, Joanne, had her basement flood. A fellow A Muse Instructor had her basement flood. Linda posted about the store flooding. My husband saw his neurosurgeon yesterday who says there is new damage to his neck but it is minor and will not require surgery, just rehab. I am thankful. I am truly thankful and I am humbled that God continues to bestow his blessings upon me. Lowly me.

For those of you struggling today I share with you this message:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:6-7 NIV

Give thanks today. Count your blessings today.


Now for stamping, I recently purchased this Little Bits kit from All That Scraps cuz the puppy is so stinkin cute! They also just released another set, which I've already ordered. I'll leave you with two samples I made using this set.
