Weekly Gratitude Journal...

Remodeling, church activities, squeezing in special time with the grandkids when we can - this summer has been full!  I always want summer to be a bit more laid back than the other seasons, but I haven't been very successful so far this year in achieving that. I guess I'd say I may be more busy than I'd like to be at times, but I'm more blessed than I deserve all of the time. And so I continue to count His graces in my life...
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)


-day one of Vacation Bible School in the books
-an afternoon at the lake with the three middle grands
-a sweet talk with my ten year old granddaughter

-some quiet time with Jesus before this busy day begins
-new shower doors installed in our remodeled bathroom
-belly laughs

-my favorite time of the day-morning coffee and time with Jesus
-all of the wonderful volunteers for our VBS
-meeting youngest daughter and our two youngest grands with our two middle granddaughters
at the splash pad 

-the mechanic saying that our new to us used car was a great deal
-when not so fun errands are finished
-a "day moon" in a cloudless blue summer sky
-a hummingbird "chasing" a large yellow butter on my walk today

-a fun date day lunch out-Korean tacos, yummm!
-stopping by our daughter's to see the two youngest grands
-watching a favorite show and munching my favorite popcorn with my guy

-finishing the book of Ezekiel
-going to Chipotle for lunch with a friend
-God's help with a blog post

-God is building His church
