Because we are human, we are prone to experience years that are chuck full of blessings that can sometimes be obscured by the realities of life - hardships, tragedies and times of feeling out of sorts. Such was ours in 2013. I always thought Blessing Jars were rather silly, until now. Oh, how I wish I could pick up a piece of paper and read the words that were written on a particular day in 2013.... words of joy and happiness for a blessing received.
Well, I'm starting this year. Bring it on 2014!
|I have only two blessing written in my jar .... I'm sure I could have thought of more. But these two were doozies and in only 8 days!|
This is my Blessings Jar. Nothing creative here .... just got a large jar at Pier One (I'm anticipating lots of blessings this year) and attached a sweet angel ornament as a reminder that all blessings are from God.
|Isn't this the cutest thing? I adore the primitiveness of this angel and let's not overlook the silver glitter! Bling Bling!|

I thought it would be fun to show you what other Blessings Jars were being created out there but this was the only one I found pleasing. I suppose I like simple.
Listen! It's not- nor will it ever be - too late to start a Blessings Jar. Hope this has inspired you. Now go and start counting your blessings!
