Multitude Monday

forever counting, forever gratitude #680-695

the laminator they gave us all those years ago,
purchased from that office supply store on the corner of Blanding and Kingsley
just laminated bookmarks, wordstrengtheners, and geography games (Northern Europe this week :)

that girl love is taller daily (or so it seems to this 5'3" momma)

enjoying every moment of January
that February is coming & bringing many wonderful celebrations with it (If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4 :)

girl love excitement for a long awaited pet
lying next to her in the stillness as she thinks of names
laughing with her over silly possibilities

the gifting of this book
the reading together
laughing and eyes brimming with tears (gratitude, silliness, brokenness, Hope)
a new fun favorite for us too

the joy of meeting together with neighbors & friends as we ponder our learnings,
seeking to hear all He has for us
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10: 24-25

a 'just because' gift
bestowed by a cheerful giver

a pastor who loves the Lord and likes people :)
who preaches Truth

being told that it is OK to feel inadequate, because
we are inadequate. and, thankfully, it isn't about us -
it's about Him, Him alone
and again i am remembered of these things and in Ann's whisper: i can hear the Barn Babe, “Apart from me, you can do nothing…”
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5

holy experience


  1. This is a lovely list. I, too, am looking forward to February celebrations...our daughter's first real birthday party, to be specific. :)

  2. loving your list. I must ask about the first book you pictured!

    I can't wait to join you and your friends for the Bible study! :)

    It just sounds so fun to say that!

    Loving you from the west....
