Count Your Many Blessings

Have you counted your blessings today?

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ.” Eph 1:3

There are so many blessings around us that we often take for granted. We forget to take the time to look around. No matter what circumstances we face in life, there is always something to be thankful for. If we start counting the blessings that surround us, there isn’t time for discouragement. I have been greatly blessed this month.

Family News

I want to combine Nana’s Treasures with the inspirational portion of my blog. I am so thankful for the family the Lord has given us. Our family was all together, except for our daughter-in-law, Joice. (Wish she could have been here.) It was wonderful to have all our grandchildren here. Kelly, Sonja, and Carenza were visiting from SC. Erik, Holly, Gabby, Rylee, Sophie, and Dani have recently moved to Missouri. We are also extremely blessed to have Michael, Janna, April, and Michaela and Andrew, Annette, Isaiah, Aiden, Ridge, and Blakeney near us. 

Our family was all together for the first time since 2015.

Kyle, Kristi, Anna and Abby Hoffman, our longtime friends from Coldwater, KS also visited us while Kelly was here. We had a houseful and lots of fellowship. We had 22 around our table. We were also able to go to Silver Dollar City while they were here.
