A week full of reminders...
from God's always & forever faithfulness
to the abundance which flows from His hand.
With a cup filled to overflowing,
I offer thanks~
I Love u Mom written on the bottom of my grocery list
a play date to the roller rink & a pizza lunch afterwards... with wonderful friends for my entire crew (thank you, Lea, for the photo!)
girlfriends... to counsel and encourage and uplift and commiserate
girlfriends... who appreciate a steaming mug of chai tea, just as much as I do :)
birthday celebrations & birthday presents, too... and these... her new favorites.
"Beeps," she calls them... because they squeak :)
new life-- fearfully & wonderfully made, and 2 very special friends-- parents a third time around
more snow... and then some more... and still more to come
safety amidst the storm
the prayers of loved-ones
a well-stocked pantry
hats and mittens... ski gear for all
tunnels and piles and mounds of snow... to climb in, to climb on, to jump in to, to jump off of
and brothers who share... even their hide-outs
a little girl who longs to be just. like. them.
a driveway-- shoveled clean, and cars-- no longer buried three. feet. deep.
my eldest son's mealtime prayer, "...thank you for the beauty of the snow..."
my heart convicted... for grumbling about the inconvenience instead of praising Him for the beauty of His hand
two boys who worked diligently to help dig out our neighbors... two boys who learned well the value of a job well done
(not to mention the treat of monetary rewards :)
His presence... always
and His gentle reminder... new life-- true life-- is forever found in Him
likewise, persevere: spring. will. come.
Join the Gratitude Community~
and the list continues...
