Monday Gratitude...

(All seven grandkids together on Easter Sunday!)
My husband and our secondborn daughter are on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic on their way home from Ghana, West Africa. They will get home tomorrow morning. My daughter's husband got home this morning on an earlier flight and so the three grandkids that stayed with me for the past week are now home with their daddy. What a full, busy, wonderful week it was! 

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
-middle grandson being such a good boy for me
-the different colors of dogwood blooms

-ten year old granddaughter calling me to talk
-chatting with my oldest granddaughter before bed
-texts from Ghana from my guy
-waking up in the wee hours for some quiet time before the kids wake up
--spring lambs in the fields on the drive to the oldest grand's school
-taking a little afternoon nap while my grandson naps
-prayer and study and good conversation with our small group

-horses frolicking in the grass
-the trees with their spring green leaves
-calls, texts and FaceTime with my guy while he's gone

-a friend from church putting a new battery in my car for me
-singing with my grandson
-the sweet presence of God in our worship and prayer time tonight

-Good Friday-thank you, Jesus, my Savior, my once and for all sacrifice for sin
-going to the zoo 

-God's peace

-apple blossoms
-God's help with all the to-dos for tomorrow

-Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
-a video from my hub's week in Ghana
-God's help with my message for today
-a wonderful afternoon at our youngest daughter's in-laws

still following,


  1. I love your photos but my favorite this time is your hubby with the children in Ghana. What a blessing for them to be there together. You have a busy week that was packed full of blessings. Thanks for sharing them - they always make me smile.
