The One Hundred Blessings of God

December 24, 2013

BLESSING NUMBER 81: I awoke this morning thanking God for the day. It is a glorious day. I will cook all day…what a joy that I can! My table is set, the gifts are wrapped and we await the thunderous joy as the Castro and Hagee clan come together.

BLESSING NUMBER 82: I mentioned that the presents were wrapped…I have a friend who helped me wrap my gifts as I planned a wedding and purchased gifts for my family! Thank you Lord for those who give of their time to help others>

BLESSING NUMBER 83: As I prepared my Mexican feast I am thankful that my mother and her mother before me taught me to cook. I treasure the recipes that have been handed down to my family because of their love for family and friends. I thank God for giving me a mother who loves her family.

BLESSING NUMBER 84:  The feast is prepared; crispy beef tacos, pork tamales, chicken mole and steak ranchero…accompanied by Mexican rice, frijoles ala Charra, guacamole, salsa, and corn and flour tortillas. Tina made homemade fudge, her special carrot cake and my sister Sandy brought peach cobbler and ice cream and of course we had the traditional Buñuelos for dessert.  I thank you Lord that we gather in your Name with beloved family. What joy Your love has afforded us!

 

BLESSING NUMBER 85: It is quiet now…the family has left to gather at the church for our Christmas Eve service. I have washed the dishes and reset the three tables that will hold another 28 family members for tomorrow’s celebration. I walk through my home and thank the Lord over and over again…He is so good to us all!

 

ONE WORD EVERYDAY

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:31

BLESSING NUMBER 77: I have the privilege of caring for my grandchildren today. Oh what joy they bring to my life. I hear their laughter and I sing for joy that I am alive and healthy to enjoy them. It is a gift from God and I am so grateful.

BLESSING NUMBER 78: I went shopping for my Christmas meals this afternoon. There are small specialty stores in our city that carry the traditional foods and fresh spices that I need in preparation for our Mexican Christmas tomorrow.  I am looking forward to the joy that Christmas Eve will bring. I am so thankful to the Lord that we can celebrate His birth and our eternal salvation with family and friends.

BLESSING NUMBER 79: I have set the tables in my home for the 28 friends and family that will join us tomorrow as we begin our Christmas celebration.  I love this time of year…it is a time to remember what God, our Father, has given to His children…His only Son so that we may have eternal life…oh there is so much to celebrate….

BLESSING NUMBER 80: I thank the Lord that I am going to sleep in a warm home filled with love and peace. I think of those who lay awake in fear of their lives as bombs go off in their cities. Thank you Lord for You are good and Your mercies endure forever!

The One Hundred Blessings of God

December 22, 2013

BLESSING NUMBER 72: I thank God that He has blessed my family by allowing us to worship in church and to celebrate the birth of our Savior and Lord. I do not take this freedom for granted especially since there are people throughout the globe that are tormented, tortured and killed for their faith in Christ. 

BLESSING NUMBER 73: I am a second generation American on my father’s side. He loves this country and as a child I remember my father telling his children, “Never take it for granted that you were born in America; it is an honor and a privilege to be born in this country.” I have never forgotten his words and thank God that I am born an American.

BLESSING NUMBER 74: I went to the shopping mall today and I heard a choir singing Christmas carols in a popular department store chain. I abruptly stopped as I heard the songs of the church proclaiming our Savior’s birth. It made my heart smile and I went to the management and thanked them for taking a stand and acknowledging our Lord.  I am blessed to live in America.

BLESSING NUMBER 75: We are handing out Christmas meals at our church after evening service. I am reminded of the hundreds of families in our city and the thousands in our country who will go without during the Christmas season. I thank God for the blessing of His provision. He is the source of every good and perfect gift that comes from above. I thank God that I am part of His Kingdom.

Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 1 Peter 2:16

BLESSING NUMBER 71: Today is the wedding day of our nephew; a young man we have adopted as our own. He has chosen a beautiful woman of God as his wife and for this blessing we are eternally grateful. As their spiritual authority, my husband and I bestow the following blessing over their lives.

Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we pray that your blessing will always rest upon this sacred union. May the home of our children be filled with joy, peace and Your supernatural favor. We ask that You, Father God, abide within this marriage as they live together in divine unity. May all who enter into their lives sense the presence of Your perfect love.

May they serve you as one all the days of their lives and may their devotion in marriage be a constant reflection of Your love.  May their faithful union give birth to healthy children who will come to know You early in their lives.

May their years together be as bright as the morning star, as numerous as the sands of the sea, and may their troubles fade away in the radiance of Your unconditional love.  .

Defend them from every enemy. Lead them into all peace. Bless the work of their hands; bless them as they sleep and when they wake and may You be walk beside them in their joys and in their sorrows.

May their love for You and each other be a seal upon their hearts, a mantle about their shoulders, and a crown upon their heads.

We declare these blessings in the Name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen
