Give thanks and discover joy!

“The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world.”  Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts

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 journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)

-an unusual 9 hours of sleep!
-casting my cares on God's capable shoulders
-knowing that God cares about those I love even more than I do

-taking the two oldest grandkids to school
-"Tell me a story, Nana!"-(my four year old grandson loves me to make up stories)
-God's peace and joy

-a very clear word to my heart from God 
-a visit from my daughter and youngest grandson-who's walking all over now!
-sweet, silly N
-dinner outside by the river with good friends that we don't get to see often enough
-an encouraging text

-a good report from my drs. appointment
-celebrating the last day of school with the two oldest grands
-God working in situations we turn over to Him

-the yummiest blueberry pancakes for breakfast
-a sweet $4 bouquet
-the sweet smell of rain after a long, dry spell

-a walk in the rain
-a painting of Mama's hometown of Bath, Maine gifted to me from my sister
-a graduation celebration

-water baptisms
-God at work in lives
-our kids wanting to meet us for lunch
