Blessings in a Bottle
At the beginning of every year people are always trying to list out new things to try and do for the coming year. I don’t do resolutions but I do try to implement things into my life that will make it better and make me a better person. This year I saw a post regarding a jar of blessings. It may have been around for a while but this is the 1st year I took notice of it.
The idea is to take a jar and fill it with little notes about blessings that take place in your life; little things that happen throughout the day and big things that occur on certain days. Well, since one of my wife’s motto’s is “Let’s not put things on display, they add to clutter.” I decided that instead of a jar of blessings I would keep an online notebook. This way I have access to it no matter where I am and no matter which device is nearby. I can also look at the blessings that occurred within a given week, month, or other specified time frame.
To date, I’ve filled it with some funny stuff, some light hearted stuff, tiny things about people I’ve met and other things God has blessed me with; some pretty huge.
If there was an app that would let me tweet these things out that would be even better; if anyone knows of one let me know. Until then I will just have to keep blowing up my notebook because God is blessing my pants off.
How about you? Anything special God is doing in your life? And when He does do something do you share it with others?
