Splashin’ in the puddles of His abundance…



When God pours out His blessings

sometimes the most appropriate response is

to dance in the rain of His goodness

splash in the puddles of His abundance

and simply enjoy Him

and all of the many gifts He gives.




I continue to count my thanks

piling up gratitude day by day

in my little green journal.


-a sleepover with baby granddaughter

-a wonderful couple from our church stopping by the house just to have coffee and encourage us

-time studying the book of Colossians

-all appliances are working thanks to a dear young handyman friend! YaY for dishwashers and washing machines!

-God answering a prayer for wisdom for my Hubs in a specific situation

-meeting sweet blog friends face to face


-the Hubs helping me as I was getting ready for our church’s annual Ladies’ Retreat

-a flare up of back/neck pain better before retreat

-an awesome, amazing ladies’ retreat…God is working in me and in the wonderful women of our church



-a day of healing and reconciliation

-seeing the Hubs obey God even when it’s not easy,

then God speaking to me about a specific act of obedience too

-first meeting of our church’s new youth outreach an amazing turnout…over half first time visitors
