count your blessings

Count your

BLESSINGS,

name them one by one,

Count your blessings,

see what God hath done;

Count your blessings,

name them one by one,

Count your many blessings,

see what God hath done.

From the hymn, Count Your Blessings

(Here are just a few of mine…)

This Thanksgiving as you count your blessings, may God remind you of His goodness and faithfulness to you in the past and His many exceeding promises for your future.

And may you always remember that:

YOU are one of my special blessings!

hugs and blessings for all He has given to us, both big & small!

You have multiplied, O Lord my God, Your wondrous deeds and Your thoughts toward us; none can compare with You. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted.

Psalm 40:5

Wholly relatable

“I know well that the greater & more beautiful the work is, the more terrible will be the storms that rage against it.”

St. Faustina

O my Lord, although so many things occupy me, although I have this work at heart, although I desire the triumph of the Church and the salvation of souls, although all the persecutions of Your faithful ones affect me, although the fall of each soul is painful to me, yet, above and beyond all this, I still have a profound peace in my soul which neither triumphs nor desires nor adversities can disturb because, for me, You are above all dispensations, my Lord and my God.
