I decided for the month of December every day Stephen and I will find someone to be a blessing to in some way expecting nothing in return. But more than that I want us to count our blessings. So I decided we would make a blessings jar to count them and on days when we are down we can go back and pull them out and remind our self how blessed we are. We are making our jar later today so no pictures to share yet. I am sharing this with you so you could make one for yourself or your family if you want to.
First you need a jar, box or some type of jar or container. I like using a clear jar so you can see the blessings as they grow. You could paint the lid, cover with paper, cloth, tie a ribbon on it or leave it plain, that is up to you.
Then cut some strips of paper, we are using white but you could do any color you have on hand. You will use these to write your blessings on each day. Then you fold them and add them to your jar. At the end of the month you will have a jar full of blessings, a heart full of blessings and memories.
So are you up to the challenge? Let me know if you decide to make one for your or your family? Also this would be a nice gift for someone else if you made them one to be a blessing.
PS I am linking up to a 31 day generosity challenge this month and this is my entry for them, if you would like to join in go to
