This is an amazing bit of psalm I read:
"Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation! Selah
Our God is the God of salvation;
And to God the Lord belong escapes from death."
~Psalm 68:19,20~

I think we often forget to thank God for the many benefits which he loads upon us daily. When I saw this, I thought for a moment to list all the benefits I had recieved that morning (It was not even nine-thirty yet). There were more than I had realized. But this Psalm does not just stop here. It goes on to lead us to the most blessed gift we have recieved from God - our salvation. "The God of our salvation" The Psalm leads us to Him from whom this gift comes from.
Praise the Lord!
For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever.

Thanks for posting about the blessings of the Lord. This morning I looked out the window and saw the ice crystals on the snow sparkling and thought how beautiful they look! They are like lots of little diamonds. To think that the Lord didn't need to give us such beauty, but chose to, is just such an awesome thought. He truly is glorious!
