I am blessed beyond measure.

I am grateful for the simple things in life--streets decorated with colored lights, the night sky ablaze with a thousand tiny stars. I am struck by the beauty that is mine to enjoy.

During a meal with friends, I notice the many ways I am nourished, body and soul. When the sun warms my face or I pull a coat around me against the cold wind, I feel enfolded in the love of God. Lending a helping hand to a stranger or sharing a word of encouragement with a child, I am reminded of all that I have to give.

I count my blessings for the small things, and I am grateful for the abundant good in my life. In large and small ways, I am blessed.
Joseph stored up grain in such abundance--like the sand of the sea--that he stopped measuring it; it was beyond measure.--Genesis 41:49
