1000 gifts and then some...

Continuing the count - at least the written count (#82- #92) - 
and remembering gifts given through out time:

Breathing in the wonder of this beautiful, splendid even in its fallen-ness world...

Soft lambs ears pushing through winter's hardness
Finding plants (coral bells and calla lillies - Angel's favorite) that will work in that troublesome spot of the prayer/fairy garden...

Oak tree blossoms and
Leaves unfurling, raised palms open towards heaven
The first wild flowers of spring
Wild weather - changing 30 to 40 degrees in a matter of hours!

Bluebonnets: determinedly emerging even in drought conditions - an example for my spirit!
The Tweener:  praying for Katy Perry because her songs don't reflect the values of her missionary parents and not really wanting to go to church on Sunday...but going with a great attitude!


Thunderstorms in the wee morning hours that make us burrow deeper under layers of hand-pieced love...


Visits from old friends and reminiscing about when the children were MUCH smaller!


Joining other grateful and gracious souls at Ann's:
