forever thankful

i am forever grateful, forever counting His gifts (in my 1300's)

receiving His gift of opportunity, saying yes

the bunkbed ((thank you, Jimmy))

Wycliffe, ice cream & coffee with The Party of Five

that work brought her here. the conference was really good. and better yet we had the opportunity to share an evening with her

her story of Loraine, Ellen, MaryElle, and the Kenmore sewing machine - and the fun in awaiting the rest of the story

talking. praying. trusting. listening
a meeting bringing better understanding

the way the light falls,
shadows cast

dark blue curtains with purple lights shining up from the floor and white Christmas lights hung vertically in front - the way it looks like a starry night

a Christmas celebration get together
sweet, sweaty kids. a baby girl. fried gator. homemade chocolate icing. and an advent wreath made with infant socks (:

Sea World during the Christmas season

gratitude & praying away the grumps {:

joyfully joining Ann and the community of thankful counters

    I cherish these words and pictures of yours. They make my day. I'm glad you took the time to post this. What an encouragement it is to see you give thanks in the big and the small.
