Opening eyes to see. Intentionally tapping out a never-ending list of the gifts He so lovingly gives every single day of my life. Not for the glory of the gift but for the glory of the Giver.
"Every generous act of giving and every perfect gift
is from above and comes down from the Father
who made the heavenly lights,
in whom there is no inconsistency or shifting shadow."
#1,003 - 1,030
cloudless skies and sun blazing
quiet mornings on the back porch
fresh coffee swirled with cream
expecting to hear from You
new life sprouting in the garden
the first sweet strawberry of the season
chickens who continue to give gifts of their own
french toast with english muffin bread
fresh water, sand, and dunes so close to home
them trying to conquer the heights
the beautiful variety of plants that grow in sand!
tiny bird tracks
laughing through burning feet
her golden spirals
Holy Spirit leading in how to raise these blessings
swooping purple martins
unexpected notes in the mail
Saturday night campfire
the best gooey s'mores ever, EVER
them roasting their own dinner
his hard-working DIY handiness
his last week of teaching and home with us all summer!
firstborn's tight waist hugs
them flying on their bikes...freedom!
pricking me to recognize the miniscule moments
breathing You in deep
Praying you're awed by sight today,
