Posts Tagged ‘2013’

379455_469705126399165_1053964202_nJanuary 1, 2013.  That’s today.  Another year is gone and a new one is here.  I pray it’s a good one.

I noticed a trend on Facebook as we were on the downhill stretch towards the start of this brand new year.  A fairly large number of people were in agreement that 2012 was a bad year for them.  Seriously, it was a decent sized number of folks all extremely glad to see the end of what appeared to be a banner year of bad luck and unhappiness.  It seemed like people were focusing on everything bad that had happened to them over the past twelve months and only a precious few were thankful for the good things the Lord had done for them.

Thinking about this issue while browsing around some of my favorite blogs, I ran across a post with a great idea for keeping track of the blessings God gives us.  (Thank you – utesmile!)   jar Each and every time something good happens to you and your family, write it down on a slip of paper and stick it in a large jar, then at the end of the year go throuigh them all and thank the Lord for all the blessings He’s given you through that year.  I love it!

What a fun way to spend next New Years Eve!  It would be a great habit to start your children doing too.   We need to spend more of our time being thankful to the Lord for all He does for us and much less time concentrating on what we don’t have, didn’t do, or wish was different in our lives.

Ok, I’ve gotta run…. time to go find a large jar in which to cram all the blessing memory notes that I just know God is going to give me and my family this year!

Happy Beginning of 2013!!!
