Have you been blessed lately?

“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.

If you have been blessed lately and would like to share your blessings for us to read, you may join by linking to this post using Mister Linky. This is not a contest though. I would just really love to hear and read about the blessings and miracles in your life and I am sure that by posting or writing about your blessings you have already multiplied what you have received a hundred fold.

To write about this post, please use "I am blessed" as your blog title and put the blessing avatar below on top of your post so that I will know that you are writing about this link.

"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.

Hey Sophiagurl, this is indeed a lovely layout. I'm working on a post about the blessings of my job...and had started it for a carnival at Riley Central. Would you be offended if I "kill two birds with one stone?"

Sophiagurl said...

hi shelly I really don't mind. if someone wrote about it also elsewhere then that triples the blessings somehow for me. =)

Hello there.

I'm a newbie blogger, in fact I've only posted my first post this morning. I stumbled upon your blog by clicking a chain of links. Incidentally, my first post is about a blessing I received one sunny day.

I will be visiting your blog often. Thank you for sharing inspiring thoughts.
