simply thanks

No lofty words or insight to share today...


simply thanks.


"And whatever you do,
whether in word or deed,
do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks
to God the Father through Him."
Colossians 3:17


#175. tender shoots growing in the garden
#176. reminding me of the tender shoots growing in this household
#177. daily grace given to me
#178. these children....HOME...with me


#179. potato peeling...skins flying
#180. snowy white mashed potatoes dripping with butter
#181. freshly vacuumed carpets
#182. sunshine bright through bedroom windows early
#183. soapy, clean-scented sheets


#184. TWO! hyacinths from one...their sweet swell
#185. the cheery enamel coffee pot found at the garage sale for $.50!
#186. the detritus of play finally put back in it's place in the basement
#187. husband filling up on fishing love...putting this to good use
#188. Dad pursuing his fishing love, too
#189. Mom here with us!
#190. bringing the kids to see this and being dumbstruck by the work of His hands! (How much more has man never seen?!)
#191. Lucy's, "I'll be sad when you go, Mormor," to my Mom


#192. on our rainy Sunday afternoon, everyone together working to bring 1,000 pieces back together again
#193. oh, isn't that what He does for me?
#194. anticipating flying out to this this week as He wills
#195. anticipating the kind of broken-heartedness that leads to change...aligning my heart with God's...."Speak, O Lord"...


#196. sitting at my new-to-me, garage-saled, happy, little desk...typing away....reading this and this and that (+many more!)...in the heart of this nest
#197. most of all at this moment, I'm thankful that His mercies are new every morning....oh, thank you, Lord



holy experience
