Great grace…



the birth of baby granddaughter…

the visit of youngest daughter…

the visit of second born daughter…

Christmas parties and preparations…

a wedding…

the happy mountaintops

another delay in the church building project…

a bank account hacked into…

a crunched car bumper…



the valley times

and in between, the sweet everyday ordinary moments

and all of it


Great Grace.


I continue to count my thanks

piling up gratitude day by day

in my little green journal…


-second born daughter able to catch an early flight home

-so much fun at our annual ladies’ Christmas dinner


-God’s provision for snow tires for our youngest daughter, (she needs them living in Kansas City!)

-a perfect day spent with two of my girls and the littlest granddaughters

-finally, it looks like second born daughter and her family have their target date to go to Ghana

(teary eyes for this mama/nana)

-how the “aunties” love their little nieces



-peace in His presence on a stressful day

-Isaiah 43:28 God makes a way through

-forgiveness received and given

-“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”

-He cleanses me

-His strength in spite of our weakness

-God meeting us in an incredible way as we worship together

-a former student, from when I worked at the grade school, and his family showing up at church

-lunch with new friends


Gratefully yours,

  3. It's nice to meet you! Visiting from A Holy Experience. I adore the photos of the newborn grandbaby, especially the photo of the tiny hand in the woman's hand.
