Like Counting Grains of Sand

Have you ever wondered how many grains of sand are in one cup of sand?  (Yeah, I know, you’re probably thinking, “Are you nuts?  I’ve got a lot more important things to think about!”)  Jochem Hendricks, along with twelve assistants, spent one thousand hours counting 3,281,579 grains in one cup of sand!  The object of his efforts are now on display in Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts.

Imagine man trying to count the number of grains of sand on a mile long stretch of beach.  Impossible!  Of course!  But not any more so than trying to count the blessings we have received from God.

“How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee” ~ Psalms 139:17-18.

Today, I am thankful for God’s innumerable blessings!
