Good evening I hope you’re all doing well! We’ve had a great weekend and I wanted to share more of the blessings that I am thankful for. I hope you enjoy them, the little chorus that is coming to my mind is “Count your many blessings, name them one by one, count your many blessings see what God has done.”

11. Snuggle time with my kids
12. Family time
13. awesome church and church family
14. the kids in children’s church and that I am privileged to help teach them.
15. For my friends both near and far
16. For quiet time with my husband
17. Being able to hear the birds singing
18. The quietness of night
19. Peace that passes all understanding
20. Amelia’s smiley faces (she’s recently learned how to draw them by herself)
21. Good reports from Dustin’s school
22. laughter (it truly is the best medicine)

Welcome to my blog

I hope this finds you all doing well! I have been inspired to start a blog. I wanted to share with you something that we may all take for granted, the blessings in life. I hope to encourage you to see how blessed we truly are as a people. I will start today by listing 10 things that I am thankful for and add as often as possible

1. My Salvation (I am so thankful that Jesus loved me enough to come and lay down his life for me.)
2. My precious husband, Joe
3. My children, Dustin, Amelia, and Pierce
4. My Mama and Daddy, Reba and Ricky Allen, they love us and raised us the best they knew how and for that I am grateful.
5. Joe and Anita, they became my parents too when I married Joe and they have truly loved and treated me like one of their children.
6. My sisters and brother
7. My large family
8. Having a house to sleep in
9. Having food to eat
10. Having clothes to wear (and yes, I am thankful for the laundry too 🙂 )
