“One, two, three, four count my blessings! One, two, three, four count my blessings!” I love this song by Hawk Nelson called “Thank God for Something.” Whenever my family is struggling, I like to put this song on and play it loud. It’s a great reminder of how important it is to count our blessings.
Many mornings it’s a struggle to find time to spend with God. I wake up late, my sons wake up early, I’m sick, or for some other reason, I’m short on time for my quiet time than I would like.

When I was little my Mom had us memorize many, many verses, and I hated it. I told her when I grew up, I wasn’t going to do it and for years I didn’t. It wasn’t until several years ago, when those verses I’d memorized as a child would come back to me in moments when I needed them, I realized the value of memorizing God’s Word.

Praying while doing chores has been an attitude changer for me. I’m not a fan of chores. I know, who is, right? Praying is one way I’ve found to give me a better attitude in the midst of them and invite Jesus in, instead of complaining to myself about the fact I have to do them.
