Gratitudes 39

A few random blessings....

I'm thankful for....

my baby boy turning 26 years old this week!
- for time with him and his Meeshell... and for Trentobean- his Kayla and cute kidlets....

the little rain showers we've gotten!  -One was today!

for the glimpses and hope of green grass that's trying to grow now in the  pastures...

-- thee inspired word of God....
... my bibles and
the message in church Sunday to take up my cross DAILY and follow him...

for  texts from family and friends that are little rays of sunshine throughout my day... and week!

vine ripened tomatoes... tomatoes and more tomatoes!

...still more GRACE...

and cooler temperatures

for my romantic husband... and how our love keeps growing bigger somehow every day.

blooming purple coneflowers.



...the many  goldfinches visiting and watching them dine upside down on the sunflowers!

dragonflies darting EVERYWHERE!  -- and feeling so much  angelmomma love all around me. In me!

Playing frisbee with a 6 year old and hearing his laughter

Pumping my legs on the swing at the park and going all the way across the monkey bars.  The memory of it still tickles my inner-girl.

Riding my new horse Bella and connecting a little more with her.

Zucchini bread coated with extra cinnamon sugar.

for daydreams....

meeting Miss Wanda and seeing her paintings of Jesus.

for little Addiedoodledoo

getting to see the beautiful coyote next to the road the other night...
and further down... a raccoon!

the sweet fragrance I kept smelling last evening near the barn although  I couldn't see any flowers...

for some solitude... - and  being just ....content!!  Right here

A visit from one of my oldest friends and chatting over coffee ...just like we did in the good old days!

Thank you Father for all these things.....
Thank you for my everything.

"My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise."
Psalm 57:7

A fixed heart! That really struck me, Lea! It just seems that when our heart is fixed on Him and we praise Him no matter what, we begin to see all the little blessings in our lives, don't we! And when you get as old as I am, somehow we finally learn that life is made up of a million little wonderful things and when we gather them up in a basket like you did here, it's even more special. I loved your list today. I'm listening to some gentle thunder and rain dripping off my new roof and I'm thankful, too, for showers. I know how you've waited and waited for these showers and so glad you seeing some green stuff. Bless you, my friend!!!!
