1000 Gifts: Spring... outdoors

"This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Psalm 118:24

Rejoicing today... because He has made all things new...
because He has brought beauty from the ashes...
because He has put a new song in my heart...
because in Him, all things are possible... my Rock & my Redeemer.

red tulips

garden helpers

the scent of freshly mowed grass... my eldest son-- now pushing the mower

flowering trees... all the colors of the rainbow

this friend... this companion... now well and medication-free

hubby home after a week of travel

childhood delights

open windows & lovely fresh breezes

the pitter-patter of raindrops on the patio

bare legs and flip-flops

hubby's college roommate, in town for some schooling-- our dinner guest on Saturday night...
and stories upon stories, laughter upon laughter... memories of days gone by

"Mom, will you ride bikes with us?"

children's voices... joy & happiness-filled... thankful to be outside once again

the opportunity to savor it all


"You are my God, and I will give you thanks;
you are my God, and I will exalt you."

Psalm 118:28

Join the Gratitude Community--

holy experience

and the list continues....

Cute pics, and of course, I love your list - as always! ;)

I bet your hubs is soooo glad that your son is finally old/mature enough to help mow! Scott is counting down those days!! ;)

oh your pictures are so good! The list, it makes me happy.
Your blog name makes me laugh. So many things in my life are "brought to you by Google". Just recently I had to google "how to make a ribbon bow". I would have been sitting there for an hour messing around. I'm going to have to add Google to my list now!

You always draw me in with the evident warmth and love in your home. It's so good to be outdoors - isn't it?
It has been a busy time for us - so post up today. But Mom is home from the rehab center! She still has a long way to go, but she is doing very well. We are all, especially Dad, so thankful!
