Multitude Monday

Praise the LORD.
    How good it is to sing praises to our God,
    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
    make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds;
    he supplies the earth with rain
    and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
    and for the young ravens when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of a man;
    the LORD delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love.
                                         Psalm 147:1, 7-11



Praises from this week and last
#192-232

how gratitude changes complaint to both compliment and complement

running one mile without knee pain
Sarah Groves singing Jesus, You're Beautiful

a morning nature walk
following a big, fat caterpillar up the bird bath

the anticipation of the spinning of a silk button








a spider in the corner
a dragonfly who seems to be observing the observers
a lizard most suspicious












monarch feeding on pink
a pollinating bee





















discovering a small caterpillar on green leaves










palm fronds swaying in the hot breeze









flowers left on the door stoop by a neighbor












a furry houseguest









checking back to see the caterpillar turned chrysalis









our seed account

eternal friendships that transcend earth

a sofa-night-talk with my hunny
him sharing 1000's of his words with me :)

strawberries, red and sweet
warm chocolate chip brownies
whipped cream

mowin' the lawn
trimmin' the hedges

our girl looking at bunny rabbits
our boy flying his most recent paper airplane

rest
sleep
time

the way children forgive- quickly and completely


checking back to find the little caterpillar, not so little









hearing her say, "Hurry! Come look: 7-5=2"  (the clock says 7:52)
hearing him say, "1-2-3-4 my favorite time!"

them saying "Please, one more chapter"
him saying, "Mommy, can I have one more hug?"

a day at the beach



it's treasures







family safely arriving at their destinations

orange Chantilly cream, prepared by our dear daughter
her first pancake breakfast (both with a little assistance)











our comfy sofa

the hopes of August
the hopes of August for Kara :)
prayers lifted up




holy experience
