Count Your Many Blessings

I love the old hymn Count Your Many Blessings. The refrain sings, "Count your blessings, name them one by one,  Count your blessings, see what God hath done!  Count your blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done."  What true words in this hymn.  This brings me to the 20/4/40 challenge.

Lenten Challenge

Jenny, at A Minute Captured, is sponsoring a 20/4/40 challenge.  You must list 20 things a day for 40 days that you are thankful for.  I am going to give this a try.  One, because it will do me good to focus on my blessings, and two, I think it is a great Lenten exercise.  So, if you would like to join in, go check out her blog.


  1. Welcome Susan, we're happy for the company in our Lenten Challenge.

  2. Excellent Lenten project Susan! I'm trying to give up making any disparaging remarks about people, and is WAY harder than I thought it would be, even though I'm not generally a negative person. Whew!

St. Therese

St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore, and tell Him I will love Him each day, more and more.
