Have you actually ever sat down and counted your blessings? What about the simple things we take for granted? A full belly and a warm bed are prayed for by many. Healthy children? What about the woman who has tried for years to conceive but is left with an empty womb? The bondage of addiction? A child abused and forgotten? My heart breaks for humanity with the endless struggles of this sin filled world.
This year at our New Year’s Pink Zebra party, our amazing upline, Dana, gave us each a mason jar to take home and decorate. The jar is to be filled with all of the blessings over the year! What a cute idea! New Years Eve of 2015, Kenan and I will open our jars and count our blessings!
I challenge you to make your own blessing jar! Write down what God has given you throughout the year. When you think God is being silent, look at the jar. We tend to focus way to much on the bad and overlook the good. This is a great and easy craft to remind you of the good in your life like a warm bed and a full belly.
Here are a few pictures of our blessing jar.
I would love to hear from anyone who has done this before in the past! What was it like when you opened that jar on New Years?! Were you amazed to actually have God’s blessings written down?
Blessings to all!
Kenan and Emily Dibrell
