The Praise Pot

There is an old brown pot on my dresser that used to contains sweets (lollies) for visiting children, then grandchildren.
We don’t use it any more, they are either too grown up or on diets, so it’s time it was used for something else.

That something else, just occurred to me today.
I don’t give God enough praise for all the blessings he has given me.
Not just the big ones, like my family and my friends, my home, my health, my senses, (well what sense I still have left. That is a moot point.), but the little blessings and sweet surprises He sends at the most unexpected times.

So I have cut up strips of paper, and every time I receive a blessing or I think of one I have already received, I will write it down and put it in the Praise Pot.
On my ‘blue’ days, and we all get them, don’t we? I will tip the pot out and read them all and then I will be praising again in no time.

I haven’t decided what to do when the pot is full. You can help me with suggestions nearer the time.

I’ve two praises in the pot already. The first one is that Jesus loves me. That is a miracle in itself.
The second one is for loving friends. I just couldn't do without them.

Now I’m rambling on.

I’ll talk to you all again when my pot is filling up!
God bless you.

Jeff is right, it is a good idea:D
My opinion is when is full to put them together and from all make some good poems or songs like the ones you wrote until now:)
