These are 3 (of many) blessings in my life.
God – He has been there to rescue me in times of need, through divorce, death, and broken-heartedness. He is the Great I Am, the only source of truly unconditional love. I don’t always feel worthy, but I know His love and forgiveness are given to me freely, if I will just accept, and trust, and rely on Him. That is a blessing. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV)
My Children – I don’t think I have completely explored the gift that my children are. Through many years of trials, an ectopic pregnancy, several miscarriages, fluctuation in hormones, endometriosis, an ovarian tumor (benign), and an endless array of medical professionals, and most important of all, through prayer and faith, my children were conceived and born, 7 weeks early, yet healthy and breathing on their own from day one. I am blessed with a beautiful set of boy/girl twins who are 13 (and a half!) years old now.
The Internet – Yes, the Internet is a blessing. Why, you ask? It brings me closer to people. I’m a social person, and I enjoy talking to people, both in person and virtually. I am blessed to know people via my blog, facebook, and other forums such as book clubs and scrapbooking sites. These friends have enriched my life immeasurably, and the Internet made many of my friendships possible. Before the Internet, how did we connect with like-minded people? Before the Internet, how did we become friends with people who are different from us who make life so much more interesting? We didn’t. Knowing friends via the Internet has blessed my life.
