How have you been blessed?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 
 
Dear Friends,
Have you stopped for a few minutes today to list your blessings? If you don’t have a blessing journal, I want you to start one. It will help you to see in a physical way how many blessings you have.
On the days when things are hard, you can read through your blessing list, and it will encourage you. Then you can start looking for a blessing in the trial.
Another reminder a blessing journal can be is to show you that there were blessings in the trials. We tend to focus on the trials and hard times, and blessing journal is a tangible way to remind yourself of the blessings.
Your children learn from your example. You should teach them to write their blessings down as well. It will start simple, and they may repeat things over and over. But we should be thanking God over and over. Encourage them to think of different things, but always let them list the important ones to them that they repeat.
Show gratitude to others as a part of your blessings. You can show gratitude in so many ways — a visit, a phone call, a card, a small gift, or even a quick text.
Teach your children to write Thank You notes. It is a lost art, and it is something that they will carry into adulthood.
Focus on the good things in your life. Don’t dwell on the bad things. Live in the present. Let go of regrets of the past.
You are influencing the next generation and their children. Teach them a heart of gratitude.
Today’s Zone Mission is to sweep and mop the kitchen.
Your Home Blessing for today is to take off the trash, sweep, mop.
My menu plan for Friday is take out.
Have a great day!
