Count Your Blessings

Happy Tuesday everyone! Only 10 days until Christmas Eve....wow it is sure coming quickly! Thankfully I have most my shopping done :-)

So a couple weeks ago I shared that I purchase this new frame that had an amazing message on it; "When I count my blessings, I count you twice." I just fell in love with it, and decided to put some of my engagement pics in it. Here it is! 




The whole thing!



This message really hit home last night. My sister called me with some horrible news...Her and her boyfriend Jory had just found out one of their friends passed away....only 22. It was such a freak accident, so unexpected. She was suppose to be getting married next month, and will be buried in her wedding dress. I can't even imagine the pain her loved ones are feeling....why was it her time to go? 

This just shows you how fragile and precious life really is....tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Tonight is not promised to any of us....anything can happen. Please keep this family in your prayers this week.  God Bless

First of all, that picture frame is amazing... I absolutely love it. Second, I'm so sorry about your sister's friend :( That's so awful, and most definitely makes you appreciate the life and time you have. Sending prayers his family's way.
