I was catching up on some blogs today and I realized I need to take a moment to thank God for all the blessings in my life.  Ash Wednesday is right around the corner. I have never been a big believer in giving up something for Lent. To me, giving up ice cream or chocolate or something like that just seems a little frivolous considering what we are supposed to be contemplating. Instead, I try to add something to my life like making an effort to study my Bible every day or making a bigger contribution to my church or other charities even if it hurts.  When I read this today, I was reminded about how very very blessed I am. My family, my job, a roof over my head, food on the table and my health. Thank you God for the health of myself and my family.  Thank you thank you thank you.

Thank you also for the blessing of the inspiration and friendships that have come out of my (almost) seven years of blogging.

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.

---Meister Eckhart

I hope today your life is filled with recognition of the many blessings in your life!
