Every Single Thing

God is so wonderful to me I can't even believe it.  I have had a truly lovely couple of weeks and am so grateful for every second of them....but the last couple of weeks are just, well, the last couple of weeks!  Some of them might appear minor and insignificant to you, but every blessing listed below evokes large, full, colorful memories filled with love, and warmth, and grace, and JOY.  ...and everything I have, every pleasure I have experienced, every person I love...every person who loves me...is from my abundantly generous Abba Father.

I might have mentioned this before, but I just love Him so much!

sweet toddler singalongs (my sunshine!)

waking to daylight

sharing Christmas enthusiasm with my littles

the beautiful testimony of suffering friends and their confidence of ultimate healing

brother hugs

candy necklaces

afternoon naps

"peekaboo Christmas"

Those are wonderful. It's good, I think, that you can reflect on the so call "small" too. You're in tune girl.

Love it!
