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,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

I've been a little under the weather over the last few weeks...feeling bummed at times that the recovery process has been a little slow...especially during the time of year when there is so much to do. But as a friend reminded me, I need to remember God's blessings.

I am blessed with an amazing husband who has had to do so much more over the last few weeks and has never complained once.

I am blessed with an amazing church family which has provided meals and even cleared snow too.

I am blessed with an amazing Heavenly Father that knows what his daughter needs....

Last Friday I was feeling really cooped up and wanted to get out for a walk. With the nasty weather, snow and being unsteady on my feet, I thought a walk at the mall would be perfect...but had no one to take me. As I humoured options of who could take me and whom I would feel comfortable taking their arm for support, I thought..."I want my dad". I knew my dad would be the perfect person to walk me around the mall...but I also knew that it wouldn't happen as he lives 45 minutes away and would probably be working. I decided I would just have to get hubby to take me after he came home from work.

But God had another idea.

At 3 pm, the door bell rang and when I saw whose face was pressed against the window, tears welled up in my eyes. I flung the door open and said to my dad as I gave him a hug..."Oh dad, I'm so glad you're here. I wanted you to come." I had not called him to come...but my Heavenly Father knew I needed my dad and had him come. Isn't that cool!
