"Oh my words could not tell, not even in part Of the debt of love that is owed
By this thankful heart" - Matt Redman
Counting My Blessings One by One to 1,000...
#77A Thanksgiving meal that was a true feast. Smiles like this one were my reward:
#78 A perfect bird
#79 A Thanksgiving that was far more than a meal, but a weekend of love, laughing, cards, shopping, and cousins. Memories-
#80 Seeing the big kids learn Pinochle with Grandma and Grandpa:
(And wondering when they become the BIG kids?)
Beyond the Holiday:
#81 King Charming telling me I'm beautiful and laughing at me when I say my face is aging. : )
#82 God's gentleness when He is disciplining me and shaping me. We've been working on something lately, and I keep failing. So thankful He doesn't fail me and doesn't quit on me.
Clinging to this verse:
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. - Philippians 1:6 (NLT)
#83 Family friends who surprised us and visited our church Sunday morning. The joy their surprise brought my kids. (and me)
#84 Whispered conversation at the coffee pot in the back of the church with sweet friends (When we should have been sitting down and listening). Trying to squeeze in everything I wanted to tell them into a few quick whispers before we became a distraction.
#85 Reading, reading, reading- every chance I could steal this weekend. Books that made me cry at the end, but smile at their beauty.
Above all else, I want to please God, know Him more, and make Him known.
I love being a wife and stay-at home mom.
I have two beautiful daughters, and after four miscarriages and two failed adoption attempts, we welcomed our miracle baby boy into our family in August, 2008.
