A blessing is said to be a favor or gift bestowed by GOD, thereby bringing happiness or the invoking of the Heavenly Father's favor upon a person. Some text also says it is the Lord's favor, wisdom, protection, abundance, ability, grace, joy, freedom, peace - all resting upon you and whatever you put your hand to.
