*Start Counting ☺


“I like to play with the stars.” When I was young I use to sit in front of our doorsteps at night to have a good view of the sky. I usually play with the stars while I am gazing at them every night. Sometimes I would even wish for all of my dreams to come true.

My father, curious about what I meant by that, asked. “How do you play with the stars?” I answered, “I pick out one and say, that’s my papa, mama, grandpa, grandma, my friends, my dog.” And I just keep on naming the stars after people or things I am thankful for.



Until now at my age I still love gazing at the stars every night. Seeing those stars makes me realize that even if I have gone through tough times in my life. Counting those stars I will surely count on and on. God has blessed me with my two lovely kids, quiet angel who is God’s gift to me, my parents, my virtual friends, my grandparents, how God gave me the strength to move on, and the life that He has given me.
Honestly now,” There’s just aren’t enough stars to count on God’s blessings in my life.”

Do you ever feel this way when you think about the many blessings our Lord has showered on us? From time to time people and circumstances come into our lives that made us feel loved, important and special. It is always good to remember with gratitude for the gifts that our Lord has given to us and have a promise to take care of them.

Have you counted your stars lately and realized how our Lord has showered you with blessings? Maybe you just have to sit down and pause for a while and be grateful for the persons and things you have been blessed of ♥♥♥

  1. Hi Sie, you know blogging is one of my way to remind myself to count my blessings. Maybe because no matter I feel down or good..when I pour it out on my each post, I will try my best to say something positive about it in the end. I notice..your post is the same. I mean you always ended it with positivity. It's one of a few good things about blogging..err..at least for me. :)

  2. yey! I do love stars. When I was young I usually stare at the moon and stars, and I have this favorite book about constellations. I used to read almost everyday. I keep that book till now. Every-time I count my blessings, I count twice those people who never fails to remind me that life is amazing. I guess, we have really something in common ate. hehe, I love watching stars and sunsets. I realized that the world is so beautiful and I'm so grateful for being one of it. weeeeeeeee haha! *hugs hugs*

  13. How Sweet! And it's quite funny because I used to do it too, I was imagining each start was somebody I loved but who left before I could have more time to enjoy their presence.
    I still love watching them and knowing others do so around the world, I feel we are all linked a way or another.
    Lots of love to you all! xxx
