Random blessings ...Oct 10

 A few random blessings shared today:
.To see another beautiful Autumn day...

..With the sky azure....
and tepid afternoons... I give thanks.

... for fresh air
through window screens
and  an open kitchen door.

For dirty dishes to do,
clothes and laundry to wash,
commodes to clean,
floors to sweep,
pork chops to fry.  

a family to love and be loved by ...
for great friends...
and this 
 place to call home.

For a morning stroll in the garden,

and the vintage blue bowl all the way from Sparrowgrass
in which to gather 

For moments like this today ... 
around a shabby olde potting shed.
(turn music player off at the bottom of this blog to hear this video)

For the continued daily visits 
of  mother and twins 
under the  Sweet heart tree. 
For beds of Autumn botanicals,
with mattresses stuffed
with Surprises, Mums n Marigolds...
For eyes of
turquoise n lime green.

and the gift of  hearing:  "Aloha Lea," 

That my Merry Bema's  surgery was successful 
and she's now on the mend. 
Prayers....  answered.

For the glimpse of Wylie Coyote in the woods with Myguy.
We hadn't seen him in so long.  

The new birds on the ground at the feeders-
-their Penciling in rich browns.

For texting with my 81 year old Father.  
gifts I  cherish.  

The love and harmony we have with our neighbors-
and sharing roads, life, and fencelines with them for over 20 years.

The note from my loved one who said,
 "I'm a Jesus follower now." -- and Discovering she too
is now art journaling her journey.

and for...
these sweet bits of 
sugared heaven.

Thankyou Lord for all these things and so much more.
Thank you for my every thing.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Beautiful colours of nature, sounds and blessings of your day. Lovely to see Addie and Francoise in 'real life' so peaceful there I could just jump through the screen and be there. Loving it all. Jx

Perhaps one of the most beautiful posts you have ever written, Lea! I was so touched by the "I am a Jesus follower now", too! I thought of that song, ". . .but when I sing redemption's story, angels fold their wings, for angels never knew the joy that my salvation brings."

A thankful heart has a beauty about it that just keeps on spreading, doesn't it? And that verse at the end . . . one of my favorites! To think that John knew there was no way to tell it ALL!!!!
