There is no deep thought here or great spiritual revelation, just a question, “How blessed are you?” Sitting outside, I’m watching the trees blow lightly in the breeze. I’m listening to one of my favorite sounds of summer, the locusts in the trees. I feel the warmth from the sun while watching the birds busy on the branch across from me. My mind asked me, “How blessed are you?” It’s kind of a rhetorical question, because we are soooo blessed. Not with great material possessions or new positions of honor, but with life. Every day we are living is a blessing from the Lord. Every day we breathe, no matter the outcome, is a wonderful gift of God. Every moment with our families are to be treasured no matter how much they can pluck your nerves sometimes( 🙂 ). Every day we get to experience is a day someone else didn’t get to enjoy. Every book we get to read is a story that’s something special. Every blog we get to meander over is a joy of fellowship bringing together people from around the world. Every moment, every second of every day is God saying, “I’m still here. I still love you. I’m still in control of it all.”
“How blessed are you?” I’m very blessed and I don’t take one day God has given me for granted. Everything He pours into my life is a major blessing. As I said, no deep revelation, just a question from a very grateful heart today. Enjoy your blessings today!!!
