Tiny grandson growing in my daughter's womb
All these blessings I don't deserve
Nana-one of my favorite things to be called
Kisses and hugs
Yahweh - You are the great I Am
Omnipresent-I'm so glad you are everywhere!
Understanding-there's nothing like knowing that I'm fully known and understood by You
One True God
Daughters-thank You for our three girls!
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my little black journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)
