Blessings and Treats

Thursday, April 17, 2014

A favorite old hymn of the church – “There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love; There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.”

And another favorite –

“Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God has done! Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your many blessings, see what God has done!

I am blessed every day. My husband blesses me daily, by being the Man of God that he is. My family blesses me – by loving me – even when I am at my worst. My employees bless me by allowing me to make mistakes as I try to be a good leader. My Aspire & Inspire Team blesses me with encouragement and motivation as I journey to a healthier lifestyle. And it goes on and on.

Bottom line – I am blessed beyond measure!

Now…the question…..How do I overcome indulging in Easter treats? Luckily for me this is not too much of an issue. Nobody does “Easter Nachos” or other salty type snacks..that I cannot resist. The only Easter sweet that I really like are “peeps” and if I don’t start….it is no problem.

So I overcome by not starting.

    emoticon I am glad that you are blessed with so many things that make you happy. I smiled As I read your opening paragraph where you reference the two hymns because when I read the challenge, the first thing that popped in my head was the hymn/chorus ... Count your blessings and I have been singing it in my mind over and over. Like you my plan was to open my blog with the words from that chorus. Might still do so. They say great minds think alike. Thanks jot sharing.

    I love those hymns and can remember them being sung in the little church "up the holler" when I visited relatives in West Virginia.
You are a blessing to us!

    Love the hymns! You are such a blessing to others, as you feel blessed by those around you. Totally staying away from the Easter treats works for me, too. If I have them in the house, then I am too tempted!
