Today is Scripture Thursday linky party over at Little Birdie Blessings blog. I thought this piece would be perfect to share there today. Abby is a real sweetheart and is always an encouragement and a blessing. She regularly exhorts us to count our blessings daily. There are many small things in each day that bring me joy and I am going to take Abby's challenge and start writing them down! I'll share my notebook soon on that. For today I can't think of anything better to rejoice over than the freedom in Christ! I also want to share here my favorite modern hymn In Christ Alone. It is the gospel sung so beautifully and brings joyful tears to my eyes each and every time I hear it! I hope it will bless you too. Thanks for those who stop by and esp those who regularly encourage me with your gracious comments :0).
