I've always admired those faithful people who are counting a thousand blessings. I thought about attempting it from time to time. But, recording 1,000 blessings seemed a little overwhelming. I'm good at accepting blessings, but to write them down was another story. That's why when I saw the idea behind 21 Graces, I was excited to jump in. Everyday I note three things which blessed me. That's it, just three things. At the end of the week there are 21 Graces. So simple. God always blesses me with far more than three each day.
