Count Your Blessings

Welcome to the weekend!  Today is Saturday... the sunset of our week.  Here's what our sheet says...

Saturday - Finishing my work to His glory... 
preparing for Sunday!

The weekend is a perfect time to look both backwards and forwards.  Are there any tasks from the week that we could finish completely?  How about a run to Goodwill to get rid of the bags you filled?  Or spending time on a project on your list that you keep pushing off to do later?  What about looking forward?  Do you know what you are having for Sunday lunch?  Are your clothes laid out?  Have you looked over the week ahead with your husband?  All of these things are wonderful weekend projects.  But let's focus on one other project for TODAY'S CHALLENGE...

During the 28 Day challenge we worked on writing down a blessing or lesson for each day.  Let's take some time this weekend to review those blessings we recorded and then praise the Lord for His work in our lives over this past week.  Did He show you something you should be working on?  Make a note of it on top of your daily or weekly pages for next week as a reminder.  So often we forget our blessings and lessons as soon as we've jotted them down.  By reminding ourselves of what the Lord has taught us in the past, we can take steps to be "doers of the Word, and not hearers only" this coming week!!

Have you been continuing on with the challenge?  I'd love to hear how it's going for you!
