At the start of the year I decided to record my blessings, viewing everything good as a gift from The Lord and thanking Him for my gifts.

Instagram is a great record keeper for when i do stop in a small awe and decided to capture the moment, the gift. I want to share some of my gifts on my blog. Below is what I have so far..
