count your blessings

I have just received this year’s ‘Count Your Blessings’ leaflet from Christian Aid. In case you don’t know, instead of giving up treats like chocolate and cake, you use the Count Your Blessings calendar through the 40 days of Lent to be inspired to an attitude of gratitude for what we have, pray for those who have less, and do something to help change the lives of the world’s poorest communities.

There’s a version for children, and this year there will be Android and iPhone apps too.

If you haven’t got involved and you want to, go to Christian Aid’s website

Be blessed, be a blessing.

Some one-liners from http://jokes.christiansunite.com 

Gravity always gets me down
This statement is false
Eschew obfuscation
They told me I was gullible and I believed them
It’s bad luck to be superstitious
According to my best recollection, I don’t remember
Honk if you like peace and quiet
The Big Bang Theory: God Spoke and BANG! it happened
Atheism is a non-prophet organization
Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular?
Save the whales: collect the whole set
A day without sunshine is like, night
The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese
Corduroy pillows: They’re making headlines!
Gravity – It’s not just a good idea, it’s the LAW!
Life is too complicated in the morning
Nobody’s perfect I’m a Nobody
Ask me about my vow of silence
