Monday gratitude...

It's Monday! Youngest daughter has a doctor appointment this morning that will hopefully enlighten us a bit on when to expect grandbaby number seven, (granddaughter number four)! We are under two weeks out from her due date, but indications are that she might be born sooner. We shall see. Meanwhile her big brother, seen above, is almost twenty months old and is keeping his mama on her toes!

I'm going to make this quick. As I write this a bird has decided to take up residence in the vent above my stove-an unexpected Monday surprise to deal with! Ewww!

Meanwhile, God is good and I am blessed. Life always has its challenges and hard things, but the love and mercy and presence of God is ever near. I'm so thankful.
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)

-God's provision
-driving my daughter on an errand-a good chance to catch up with each other
-my Monday school pick up of the youngest grand girlies
-dinner with my oldest and her family

-a restful night's sleep
-an invitation to a lovely lunch 
-texts from my guy

-a nice walk with youngest grandson while mama gets an ultrasound
-sweet ultrasound photos of our youngest granddaughter
-a new crib for our little princess

-2 Corinthians 1:3-7 TPT
-sweet video of our grandson singing himself to sleep

-getting my Saturday chores done today so I can relax with my guy tomorrow
-so much treasure in the book of Philippians
-my guy safely home from

-enjoying a slow Saturday morning
-this beautiful cold, frosty, blue skies day
-the smell of pot roast cooking that reminds me of Sunday lunches at Mama's

-another gorgeous winter day
-the power of prayer
-some evening Bible journaling all cozied up in bed with my lap desk

still following,
