Weekly Gratitude Journal

It's May! It's going to be a crazy full, busy month exciting month. It's graduation and wedding season and then May is also full of birthdays in our family, Life in general is full, busy and exciting. God is up to good things and it's an honor to be a part of His kingdom and a part of what He is doing in the earth. 

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)
