“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” - W. T. Purkiser
Blessings are miracles in itself. Everyday blessings are sent our way to help us get through our daily struggles. It may be sent through a friend, who suddenly calls you out of the blue when you feel you need someone to talk to. It may be a stranger who, by some unknown force, seemed compelled to ask you if you needed assistance. It may be a post in someone's blog that somehow seems like an answer to your heart's deepest yearnings. It may also be just anything ordinary that you did to someone that made them feel blessed.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Gospel of Matthew 5:3-10
If you are a recipient of a blessing, keep the blessing working by being the source of blessing to other people.
