Count Your Blessings Sunday - 7 Year Old Edition

Count Your Blessings Sunday

It's Count Your Blessings Sunday again and this week I decided to get my kids in on it! Elisha is our special guest, uh.... counter, yeah that's it. Elisha is my special guest counter for Count Your Blessings Sunday. Here are the things he believes God has blessed him with this week.

1) I'm blessed with video games (his oh so favorite that he only gets to play on the weekends)
2) I'm blessed with a TV (only the essentials here folks!)
3) Food (he's eating right now)
4) I'm blessed with my sister and mom and dad (now we're gettin' somewhere!)
5) I'm blessed with Star and Sky, our two cats.
6) I'm blessed because we live in a house.
7) I'm blessed with my dogs, Tonka and Koda.

Not too bad. I do like to remind the kids of the things they do have, especially when so and so from there class gets a new __________ and now they want one too. We've actually been talking a lot about the ways we have been blessed lately so I thought they'd get a little bit excited about me listing the ways they are blessed too. Stay tuned, next week Count Your Blessings Sunday - 6 Year Old Edition!

Tell Elisha he's a blessed kid indeed. How sweet and such an important lesson to keep teaching our kids.
