1000 gifts and then some...so many bluebonnets {Smiling}

So much to be grateful for this week, things that produce joy, deep unspeakable joy - joy that has more depth than the reality of a grief that constantly makes itself known, that engulfs the truth of a diagnosis that is progressing, a joy that wells up during praise, that quiets the soul when the unknown comes knocking, that stills the heart to listen for His voice, that opens eyes to His gifts...

...The bounty of blooms
 

...sweet tweener getting to spend time with her best friend...
...renewed enthusiasm for school...





...did I say bluebonnets?














...the fragrance of bluebonnets -
    heavy in the morning air...







...looking across the property and the carpet of blue coming into view...

...blue in every direction...

...walking through knee high perfume...


 
 ...learning how to put a frame around all that blue easily...

...blogland friends...(each and everyone of you!)

...photoshop...

...the abundant rains that ushered in
    all this beautiful blue....


...grace that is the soil for all these seeds 
    of joy being planted...

...an empty cross
