"The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes,
and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the true life lies."
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
So once again I give thanks for the everyday things and the incredible gifts of His hand~
our very own beds
a roof over our heads, a kitchen full of good eats
the reminder that we are RICH while millions are not...
and the burden to give, to do, to offer something more
answers... whenever they may come
this sparkling brood... my nest of four
and their constant chatter, their endless mirth, their childlike faith... their joy
a fun new toy and the music he creates :)
plus a turn or two for his favorite little protege
with summer's end, her very favorite possession (at least for this moment in time)~
this end-of-the-season find... her very own flops
a weekend with my folks and Saturday picnic fun
and charming results
a special someone to share it with
a morning in the church nursery, my boys-- helping-- at my side
an afternoon nap
and then "Sunday School Musical"-- a production written and choreographed by a favorite 14- yo friend
the ministry-- the faith-- of the students involved
and His ways... so much higher than my own
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endures forever."
1 Chronicles 16:34
and the list continues...
