With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Count Your Blessings

Count Your Blessings

I saw this great idea on Julie's lovely blog Less-Than-Perfect Life of Bliss and knew I wanted to follow her instructions to make one too.
Instead of using letter and number stickers, I simplified my project by printing the words on some pretty paper. After carefully lining the three pages up, I taped them together to get the length I needed to fit the frame.
I inserted the pages into a frame I got on sale (Julie found a great frame at a thrift  store)
Then I attached a few very pretty paper flowers that a kind blogger named Sandy @Quill Cottage sent to me this time last year.
Using Dry erase makers, I can write directly on the glass the many blessings that fill my days.
Praise the LORD, my soul;
   all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
 Praise the LORD, my soul,
   and forget not all his benefits—
 who forgives all your sins
   and heals all your diseases,
 who redeems your life from the pit
   and crowns you with love and compassion,
 who satisfies your desires with good things
   so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5
