As we round the bend to 2012 we look back on a myriad of blessings and good things here at Christianbook.com. We’re up in the top corner of the states, close by the coast, and not too far from Boston. Our customer base extends around the world and semi tractor trailer trucks loaded with packages have rolled out of our driveway on their way to our wonderful customers; customers like you… and you are a blessing we are thankful for every day.
Thoughts on blessings:
- Not only is it a smart spiritual discipline to make a list of blessings, but it’s therapeutic as well. Months later when you flip back and re-read your list, you’ll know that your cup is overflowing.
- In a prayer group one night we all were asked to write down and share three things we were thankful for. We piled them all into a box then drew out one slip of paper at a time and read them aloud. Soap and hot water. Shoes. Eyeglasses. This sounded more like my take-it-for-granted list. Other women had listed health, forgiveness of sins, heaven ahead of us, the Holy Spirit. From the everyday basics to the glorious future, we specifically gave thanks for it all. We went home feeling rich and contented and even spoiled.
A New Year’s Eve tradition of counting blessings is an exciting way to close out the past 12 months. And then keep on going in January….You’ll be so glad you did!
