Thousand Blessings

This year will be the first year that I am going to name.

I was thinking about it, and praying, and this year will be the year of gratitude.

“Give thanks in all circumstances…”

It’s hard. I’ve come to realize that already.

Like the last nights of 2 am and my eyes open wide…

learning to give thanks in the dark when you are tired is hard.

And in the good things, too. Simply remembering to give thanks for them all this year.

So I’m starting over, counting endless blessings again.


1000 Blessings Recount….

The uncountable, continual blessing… #1 to #1001….

Christ… What you are… who you are… thank you….

. Awed by God at working in wondrous ways- finding us a new house!

R, L, M dancing around in cowboy hats

Betsy’s laugh in the living room

Mamo’s candle log in the fireplace

God’s clear guidance

Lightsabers and star wars reenactments

Packing boxes to move

Apollo 13 and Andy Griffith on New Year’s Eve with Dad

dreaming big about the big house

K’s Reepicheep moves

Christmas and Peace


(I’ve counted a lot, so there will be multiple posts under this title…)
