Blessing Jar

What a wonderful idea.  A Blessing Jar.  

We keep an active altar in our home.  A space to burn candles and incense.  To put flowers or seasonal offerings.

I love the  idea of adding a Blessing Jar to the altar.  What a great way to commemorate all of the wonders throughout the year - all of the thank you's, the aha's, the memories, the gifts of a moment.  I also like the idea of being able to pull out some of the blessings in the not-so-wonderful times.  What a great way to get myself back on track.  Or give myself a reminder.

I have the perfect mason jar...


  1. What a lovely idea! A few years ago, a friend gave me a jar full of affirmations and encouragements, and while I loved the intention, the preprinted sentiments didn't quite resonate. I really like the idea of having a way to capture joy and positive energy as it is experienced through the year. May have to go dig out a Mason jar or two...

  2. We also put a swear jar up. I'm trying to keep the two balanced - more blessings than curses. :)

  3. What a great idea, I think I'll do one for the mantel!
