I am Truly Blessed!

So as I sit here in my dorm room, waiting for my last class, I've been doing a lot of thinking.  I was going through some of my "junk" and trying to organize stuff and began to get really frustrated with some things.  These past few weeks I've been a bit of the "depressed" side, extremely homesick, and just not happy.  I miss being home and seeing all my friends and family.  Yes, I have friends here, and my soon-to-be brother-in-law is here as well (which, by the way, Is sooooooo amazing and great to have here!), but I just really miss the familiar faces from home.  Tomorrow will be February 1st. That means only 3 whole months and a few days 'till I'll be back home!!!! I guess it's not to much longer??????
The other day I was reminded of a song and just simply can not get it out of my head. "I Have Been Blessed". I think God is trying to send me a message ;) as I walk around campus I find myself thinking over the words to this song over and over again.  This past week I've been doing a bunch of focusing on all of the negative things in my life right now, but what I need to do is think of all the many blessings I have from God!
I've been trying to think of a way to help myself with my negative attitude.... and I think I've got it! Every time I catch myself dwelling on the negative, I will praise God for 3 blessings in my life!
I have a feeling this semester will be a great time to start this!!! I will be tough, but with GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!!!!!!

Please pray with my that I can have a God honoring attitude and not let the Devil win!!!

1st Verse 
When He walks among us, all that He does, All of His mercy and all of His love.  If the pen of a writer could write every day even this world could never contain just how I've been blessed / The warmth in the winter, the flowers in spring, the laughter of summer, and the changing of leaves.  Food on my table, a good place to sleep, clothes on my back and shoes on my feet.  Oh, I have been blessed. 

I have been blessed, God's so good to me, precious are His thoughts of you and me.  No way I could count them there's not enough time, so I'll just thank Him for being so kind.  God has been good, so good.  I have been blessed. 

2nd Verse 
Arms that will raise, a voice that can talk, hands that can touch and legs that can walk.  Ears that can listen and eyes that can see, oh, I've got to praise Him as long as I breathe.  Cause I have been blessed / Father and mother, nurtured and raised, my sisters and brothers, memories made.  Our pastor to lead us, this altar to pray, Stripes that can heal and a Blood that can save.  Oh, I have been blessed. 

3rd Verse 
We live in a country, the greatest on earth, our flag stands for freedom and what it is worth.  She stands in the harbor, Ms. Liberty calls, all have gave some, but some gave it all for me to be blessed / A shoulde to lean on when I am down, a rock where He leads me when I'm overwhelmed.  The place where He hides me under His wings.  He's not just a song, He's the reason I sing, Oh, and I have been blessed.
