the blessing box

Blessing one--Contentment.  I've seriously felt God's presence this year in how He has given me contentment with my job.  To be honest, teaching is a struggle for me at times as far as trying to figure out if it's truly my calling.  It's mainly an emotional and spiritual struggle because I have felt so natural at it and things have gone so well as far as feedback on my teaching.  However, that's where the battle comes in.  In the past, I have wondered fiercely why God would have something seem so natural, yet be so not at peace within me.  Well this year, He has gifted me with contentment.  I hope it lasts.  I pray it lasts.  I just want to be in His will...wherever it may be and I want to be content.  Thank you Lord for answered prayers.

Blessing two--My mom and dad.  My sweet momma commented sarcastically the other night that they haven't been mentioned as a blessing yet.  I was getting there.  I know she was joking, but I wanted to make sure to mention how much of a true blessing they are in my lives.  Oh my...every child should have parents as supportive and caring as mine.  I can't even express how grateful I am to have the relationship I do with my parents.  (Hope this shout out suffices, Mom...you know I can't put my gratitude into words....it just doesn't do it justice.)

Blessing three--Time to clean my house and catch up on life.  What a wonderful refreshment to be able to have ample time at home to catch up on cleaning, laundry and organizing.  This weekend was just what my heart and soul needed.  Nothing's better than time at home.

I've mentioned a few times about the blessing I have in my husband.  I'm blessed right now that we both have some time together at home, so it's time to wrap up computer time.  So, this week's post is short, yet the list of blessings in my life sure aren't.  God is so mighty and so good.  I pray that you're able to find blessing after blessing in your life this week that reminds you of His passionate love for you.

Now, go join the lovely Natalie and share your own blessings!
