The old hymn tells us to count our blessings, and in doing so we will be surprised to see all that God has done in our lives. It’s true. God is at work in our lives, though often we focus on what is NOT happening, complaining rather than noticing all the ways God is working in our lives. When we focus on being grateful, suddenly we see the tiny miracles that happen everyday. We see the many kindnesses we are shown and coincidences that work out for us. Plus, we feel better, living in the goodness rather than disappointments of life
