My Lollipop

“Count your blessings name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done…”

That is the song that awoke my heart this morning.

It’s Thanksgiving and as each year unfolds the complexities of life, I have found many reasons to be thankful. I have learned to savor God’s goodness in all of life as a child savors the sweetness of lollipop as he licks the juice off of it. That’s why I call this illustration “my lollipop.”
