Ennumerating Providential Provisions

Otherwise known as Counting Your Blessings.

However you refer to it, it's something I don't do nearly enough. During recent explorations in the blog world, I've come across Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts dare several times. And when a former neighbor gave me a lovely journal for Christmas this year, I knew exactly what I'd use it for.

Perfect, no?

I don't know exactly what the details of the dare are, but my version consists of writing down blessings. I aim for at least three a day (some days end up with more!), and I date my entries. That way I'll have a sort of journal of the little everyday blessings that God gives so abundantly. The more I do this, the more blessings I see!

It's hard to be discontent when you're grateful, and I can't help but be grateful when counting my blessings. So maybe I just need to write in my journal all day!


  1. Oh, Shannon, it is perfect! What a wonderful idea and how beautifully executed.


  2. Any day can be a wonderful day when you are counting your blessings. It is such a blessing to me to come here and read your blog!
