Speaking of Blessings...

This adorable little chick, who is now almost thirteen, has captured the hearts of our family, as well as thousands of others, since her video, "Jessica's Daily Affirmation", went viral.

I watch this from time to time when my heart is heavy, my head is thick, and I just can't see straight.

Often that would be in the morning when I haven't had quite enough coffee and the day stretched out before me looks boring and bleak.

Sometimes I just need to remember how incredibly blessed I am, how very much I am loved by Jesus, and how like Jessica, "My whole house is great. I can do anything good."

I'll tell myself these things, out loud, as I stand at my kitchen counter and stir cream and sugar into my second cup of coffee.

Oh the power of the spoken word... of affirmation and blessing!

Enjoy this video and then give yourself a little pep talk and count your blessings like Jessica does.

I bet it would be really good for your heart.

Although, I wouldn't suggest you stand on your bathroom counter while doing so...

That might not be "anything good".

"Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on
things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—
the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly;
things to praise, not things to curse."
~Philippians 4: 8-9 (MSG)
