My word for the month...

My word for my life is faith. Everybody that knows me usually knows that. My word for the year has been BELIEVE. But my word for the month is going to be BLESSED. God has blessed me in so many ways. A wonderful family, supportive friends, a great job and a very happy, contented life. I don't have great wealth or fame. And I don't need it. I have what joy and peace and love. And it doesn't get any better than that. 

One of my favorite bible versus that I live by is found in Philippians 4:11 (NKJV). Paul describes my life when he says "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content"

We have probably all heard the words to that old hymn "Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings, see what God has done."

My sisters church sings a song I am Blessed. It is kind of the churches signature song. I love it and the lyrics go through my hear at random times. I was able to find someone singing it on You Tube. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you so much for entering my little give-a-way. Although you weren't the winner, I think you will appreciate the comment that the winner, Ms. Gayle, left. Also, as I'm doing my devotionals this morning, I was led to Hebrews 11:1 - Faith is the confidence that what we HOPE for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. As Ms. Gayle said, faith and HOPE go hand in hand! HOPE you have a wonderfully blessed week!!!

A timely reminder that we do need to count our blessings - "thank you"
