Practicing Gratitude... 2.01.12

-Yet another family portrait... a priceless one at that

-This legacy that Papa's building... love, love, love and WHIPPED CREAM

- Star Blazers, a new bond for Hud & Daddy

- Pretty eyes, pretty hearts

- That your presence, Lord, in the present is an endless source of joy, a continual feast. The soul-satisfaction I find in you helps me relate to other people. As I enjoy your abiding presence, I can bless others with my gentleness."  Adapted from Treasury of Praise. Thankful, thankful for His abiding presence.

- A particular nursing home spy

- To get to have this one to be in our home, along with his brothers...

- That these notes appear in multitudes, and I can't get enough of them

- Mornings when Corbin drives kids to both schools... his generosity is not normal

- Celebrating Todd's 40 years- foundational friends in our lives - grateful for so many great years of friendship with the Brogdons

- That Basden gets Daboo for her science teacher (and that our school makes this an option)

- Matthew 13, when rocky ground becomes fertile

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles...   1 Chronicles 16:11-12
