Thinking on His goodness, and counting....949-965

The Lord's goodness is astounding to me.  He so lavishly loves me.  I am overwhelmed by it..... when I take in His perfection in the sight of massive Oregonian trees, or find myself swaying to soulful sounds of country folk music, or the feel of my son's hand in mine, or..........

the way her lashes curl
her infectious giggle
how he crinkles his nose when he laughs

a dark morning
books, books, books
how our house is such an imperfect mess

hot, sunny summer days
a cool lake nestled in the mountain
kids and craw-daddies
watching our pup swim like a fish, doing what he was born to do, and
loving it

free online planners

praying with her over the miles

heart-to-hearts with my girl

loving him
turning over at night and seeing his still, sleeping form
feeling my own smile

holy experience


  1. oh my gosh.
    such a sweet list.
    loved it.

  2. as i read i closed my eyes to see her lashes curled (just like her momma's) and his nose crinkling in laughter... and the thanks multiply, as i am thankful to see these visions so fresh in my mind

    and this:
    feeling my own smile

    i don't know that i would've thought of that. it's so beautiful; the smile itself an offering of gratitude to The Giver of all good things.

    I love you, Dear One.
