Multitude Monday the gifts #619-635

It doesn't happen that all of life is great... all at once.  There is always some cloud darkening the sky some where.
In Eucharisteo, we feel the sun's warmth.  Our paths find light.  We recognize it's effect even in the reality of complete cloud coverage.  In the Pacific Northwest, there are many overcast days... often forming quite a long strand indeed.  Yet, there is light.
Even though it be obscured, the sun still shines.
Yes it does.

Yes, He does.

Counting my blessings:

His blood was shed
I was justified

He was crucified
I died with Him

He was resurrected
I now live

A miracle I don't understand
A gift I gladly take

Grace I don't deserve

The hunger nothing in this world can satisfy, but
He does
He feeds me from His hand, and
I am full

The crucifix my mother gave me,
how it reminds me of what He's done

my mind serves me to remember

Oh, the story I have to tell....

14 For by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First He says:
 16 “This is the covenant I will make with them
   after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
   and I will write them on their minds.”[b]
 17 Then He adds:
   “Their sins and lawless acts
   I will remember no more.”[c]
 18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.

The Book of Hebrews, Chapter 10

  7. Hi, I just discovered your blog. I just started blogging a thankful list too, though mine is more basic in context to parenting toddlers, but I like to get ideas of how others are responding to the Multitude Monday and meet more in the Gratitude Community. There's so many bountiful blessings from our wonderful Lord Jesus that we can praise Him for...thank you for expressing them so beautifully! :)
