How often have I heard the term Blessing used? That’s a number I can’t count! When I hear the term the song Counting your Blessings from White Christmas immediately pops into my head.
What exactly is it that I’m counting?
A blessing is God’s favor and protection. Those who are blessed are those who “live with God in heaven”.
So, when I count my blessings… I count the many instances where things have simply worked out. Despite my fears or concerns. Regardless of how hard I try to manipulate situations one way or another… in the end they work out and often in my favor. Those are blessings and when it happens I’m blessed.
I’m fortunate. I guess one could say I’m blessed to have enough blessings in my life to be able to fall asleep while counting them.
