Gratitude Photo Story

Greetings and Holykisses,

I'm counting my blessings today and thought I'd share a few random blessings through a photo story.

Thanks God for my dear FAMILY.
For the unconditional love we have for one another, and for keeping us so close-knit.

Thanks for the cooler weather, and for dazzling our landscape with botanicals once again! It's like one last "hurrah!" Thankyou for the beautiful Crepe Myrtles that have all our sinuses in an uproar and the snow queen clematis that even Katydids love! Thankyou for the wee little flowerpots from Oklahoma that make me smile!

Thankyou for providing hay for our cows, so we haven't had to sell any yet. Thanks for healing Brother John's snake bites and for the cool water in the spring that soothes his fever.
Thankyou for my birthday bear! I asked You for a bear and you gave me a bear. A real live bear! Thankyou!!! I stand amazed at your goodness!
Thankyou for sweet FRIENDSHIPS.
When I look back to all my friendship beginnings, ... I just can't get over how You cross all our paths with one another with such purpose. I'm so blessed with the gift of friends. Thank you God!!!

Thankyou for stars inside morning glories, perfume in Clematis,.... dragonflies in kisses, and cookies in milk. ;)
And thanks God for your Word.

Help me stand at the crossroads and look.
And show me the good way LORD.
I will walk in it.

Precious post, I like the last part most of all, thankful for his word for where would we all be without it.

You have been blessed in many ways and especially the animals that share your life. They make the day a bit brighter and give loads of kisses.

God walk and keep you all safe this Labor Day weekend.
