Endless Gifts

Daily I'm surrounded by wonderful gifts from God, yet many times I choose to see the disappointments instead of the blessings.

Today I choose to be a cheerful recipient, a joy finder, a gift counter.
#201. We've had this precious little man with us for two years.

#202. Finally posting his full birth story.

#203. He now says, "I wuv you."

#204. He's a ball of energy all day long, but when he's tired or hurt he still wants to cuddle into my lap.

#205. That he has finally made it onto the curve on his weight chart.

#206. These eyes...the same as mine...connecting us somehow.


#207. Taking him to see a firetruck for his birthday.

#208. The way his face lit up when he saw the "woo-whoo."

#209. Jonathan's shyness melting away when the firefighter turned on the siren.

#210. How Emahry stuck her fingers in her ears because it was too loud, but he wanted it over and over again.


#211. A camera to capture these moments and help us remember. (Even if the autofocus doesn't focus on what we want it to.)


#212. Celebrating with Key Lime Pie in honor of Grand-daddy, who Jonathan is named after.


#213. Remembering that this little boy is a gift from God.

#214. Looking forward to helping him grow into a man of God.
What are you thankful for today?

holy experience

I've been a follower of your blog for awhile, but haven't paid much attention to your sidebar until today! I just noticed that you have my blog button on your sidebar. Thank you so much for including me! I am humbled and honored that you enjoy my blog and find it encouraging. You've made my day! :-)
God bless you,
Mandy
