Gratitudes 38

Greetings and Holykisses,

Sharing a few random blessings...

The "Mooo Bar" Myguy bought me at the gas station this afternoon.
I'd never even heard of these before but how especially wonderful it was 
on a day like "today."  
(having  sold all our moocows just this morning)

For God's provision.. no matter what and always.

Foglifter coffee,

And for a sweet Aunt who thought of me and phoned-

For a new phone as well... 
and this  cool app I'm using  to count my blessings every day.  

For technology and 
a son who helps me figure all this stuff out.  

Seeing  birds in the backyard drink water from antique china.
They  love their sugar- bowl with pink roses on the sides. 
For Myguy,
our Strongheart, our Musicman...
- and for their sweethearts: dearKayla, and Meeshell
we are so blessed.

for the sweet gal who  insisted I go first in line at Atwoods. 
How sweet she was.

that we get to have air conditioners and box fans.
I know I've gotten very  spoiled.

For our shabby olde farmhouse.
and  this bit of earth.  
For so many moonflowers
- and catching hummingbird moths with Max.  

For catching yet another groundhog Monday morning.  
And for my  friend who I  stopped and picked up without any  warning,
She  rode with me down to the river  to let groundhog go
and  even held a long handled garden tool to protect me...for just in case.
What a  friend!   
For the ever growing moon and stars melons....

and bounty of cukes, zukes, maters and candylopes, 
now that the groundhog population is being reduced at
the shabby olde potting shed. 

For seed.  
And having a bit of soil to plant.  
I am so very blessed. 

Thank you Lord for this and so much more.
Thank you Father for all these things..
thank you for my every thing.

Dearest Lea, Such an awful day for you and you are finding gratitudes. You are such an inspiration.
I wish I could send you some rain from Scotland to water your fields.We have had heavy downpours and then it dries up again but it is worse in England, they are having floods.

God Bless You and your family.

Oh, Lea. God is so good and I love reading your gratitude posts. I am still reading "1000 gifts" and trying to appreciate Eucharisteo... I have so much to learn. My faith seems so small at times, but I stumble upon beautiful reminders of all I have been blessed with when I see things like this post. Thank you my friend. Still praying for the rain and trusting that He knows what He is doing. xo

You are the happiest person I know and whatever comes your way is a blessing or it just doesn't matter.
We should all be like that.
Be blessed, my dear sweet friend.
