Blessed Beyond Measure Card

It has been a long time that that I have taken part in The Path of Positivity Challenges. This month the theme is Blessings. Thank you Lisa for reminding me that I am truly blessed. My body has betrayed me. I have osteoporosis and 7 other autoimmune disorders. It seems every time I turn around something else is wrong. Lately I have felt very down and discouraged. Then I read the Path of Positivity post. I sat and thought about my blessings. What are my blessings? I realized I had a lot to be thankful for. 

I have life, I can still walk, albeit with a cane, I have my parents still with me, I have a home, I have 3 brothers, 3 nieces and their children, I still can craft and paint. I have heat and running water. I have food to eat and hot tea to drink. I have many crafting friends. I have a good mind. I can go on and on about all that God has given me naturally. The best blessing is being able to serve him and his precious Son. Yes It is a blessing, a very special blessing. 

This little angel makes me think of her saying thank you for all the blessings bestowed. That is why I used her for this card. 

Hello, Today I am using a digi by A Day For Daisies called "Sending a Prayer." You can find it here

The sentiment is by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles that Lisa created for The Path Of Positivity Challenge. You can find it here http://pathofpositivitychallenge and Lisa's blog here with her store

Adore the card, but your write-up impressed me the most. We've missed you as well, Edwina! Life throws us many curves, things we never dreamed about, but it also gives us many blessings. Being able to recognize them is what makes the bad days tolerable.
