Weekly Gratitude Journal...

Going to make this short and sweet since I've got a list of things to do today in order to be ready for next week's Vacation Bible School at our church. Here at home we're still in remodel mode on our master bathroom but it's coming along nicely and I'm loving it! Happily, this morning we have a brand new working toilet in our master bathroom and the new vanity is being installed as we speak! Tomorrow a plumber is coming to install the new faucet on our spa tub and after that the grout can be finished on the tile around it and the shiplap surround under it installed. Then we are just down to installing the new shower faucet and shower doors when they come in and it will all be done, except for the new blinds that are being ordered. Hip Hip Hurray! It seems like this summer is zooming by and has been full and busy. I'd love a slow and lazy August!

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)


-the beginning of our long awaited and saved for master bathroom remodel
-a nice long walk with two of my grandgirlies
-and a fun swim at the Y!

-a friend's help with a simple repair
-God answers prayer!
-a quiet evening together

-encouraging progress on the bathroom
-a visit with G.
-homemade meatloaf

-God's provision
-a field of summer wildflowers
-communion-powerful worship-praying for one another

-the adventure of taking our two year old grandson for a haircut
-a long walk with him
-trusting God when trials come

-a friend helping my husband with selling my car and buying something different
-the gift of help when I had an awful migraine
