In my last post, I ended with #10 and I fully intend to pick up where I left off. While there is much swirling in my head, I’m determined not to get behind on a week of gratitude posts. We’ll ignore that I am already making up for last week. That pause and reflection is necessary and like I’ve said before, it points to something greater. Ann Voskamp is kind of a genius for recording hers and I intend to do the same…though she writes with a depth I can’t wrap my brain around. I start where I am. If that statement doesn’t sum up a good way to approach the future, then I don’t know what to tell you.
This will mostly be in photo form. I’m not a photographer. My camera is my iphone. Still, I love pictures. Sometimes they are indeed worth a thousand words.
*these are in no particular order…still using Ray’s computer. I suppose I should be thankful for having more than one. Pardon my first world problems.
#11 – Remembering babies
#12 – Freaking out when they are taller than you
#13 – Friendships that stand time change and distance
#14 – meeting new friends (thanks COTH)
#15 – The ones who you prayed for but couldn’t ask. The ones who came anyway 🙂
#16 – Three little words that won’t go away (another post all-together)
#17 – The couple that called themselves Roadies for Jesus. If they come to your church to help with setup/tear down…they mean business. What a blessing they were to us (Mary once said “oh I don’t listen to music that is post WWII”)
#18 – Preparations
#19 – a church family that defines “get-er done”…in a non-redneck kind of way. They are amazing!
#20 – A photo in a new church that was a long time coming 🙂
#21 – Silly faces who call rocks ‘bugs’
#22 – water babies…they do take after me!
#23 – Love is – you take the last one…
#23 – Pillow Notes
#24 – Divine appointments in a season I don’t understand
#25 – the smell of Hawaiian Tropics sunscreen
#26 – The abilities of others that make the world go around…and create children’s rooms and lovely women’s bathrooms.
#27 – stirrings of the heart that won’t go away
#28 – my babies in their pajamas
#29 – “Dad you are not gonna believe it. Mom bought syrup” – that my “bad mom” moments make them happier than it should.
I about drove myself mad trying to get these pictures on here. There are many that I am missing. I still can’t believe we are going into our third service in the gym…and all the hard work that was put into it. Tracy and Delaina were determined to make that bathroom a lovely place and they did! Erica does what she sees on pinterest, making our kids room amazing. I look forward to what this season holds.
What are you thankful for?
