Gratitude Challenge

I’ve been meaning to sit down and write a blog post for some time now. In fact I have sat down at my computer several times with the intention of writing.For one reason or another though a post never got written! Sometimes it was the kids interruptions.Sometimes there was just nothing in my head to write! That's why I am so glad I came across  the Gratitude Challenge over on Garden of Learning.

In life we too often focus on the negative.We are so focused on what we don’t have that we miss seeing just how  blessed we are. So the basis for the challenge is to post every day of November.Blog about what your thankful for. I think this is a great idea and I’m hoping it will help me get past my bloggers block! :0)

Today is day one and it took me a minute to decided exactly what to write about.Kids,family,hubby.All of these came to mind. Then I decided that I wanted to start at the most important place.


I am thankful for the knowledge I have of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am thankful that through His atoning sacrifice I can be forgiven of my sins. That I have a loving Savior always looking out for me.Always waiting to welcome me with open arms and forgiveness.

I am thankful that I know I am a daughter of God and that He loves me. We all have  days when we feel like we  are not pretty enough,thin enough,smart enough,organized enough,crafty enough,lovable enough or any other. When I am having one of those days it is such a blessing to me to know that I am the daughter of a King. A Heavenly King who made me in His imagine. I am weak, I am not perfect.But I am loved and I am worth while.

I hope you all will join in with me this month on this challenge. How have you been blessed today?
