Endless Counting

The month of November brings cooler weather, vibrant leaves and the gentle nudge in my heart to have a spirit of Thanksgiving. With the abundance of blessings that I have, I am joining Ann Voskamp for Endless Counting of 1000 Gifts.

Today I am Thankful for...
...early mornings with Aves, sipping coffee with peppermint mocha creamer and her asking me to read to her from her Bible...
...a kitchen that begs to be cleaned from last night's homemade pizza feast...
...fantastic results on Reecey's genetic testing, and the sleepful nights that accompany...
...being out of laundry detergent all weekend, a perfect reason for keeping the sabbath holy from dirty clothes...
...Audrey's pigtails...
...a drop of Oregano oil, a shot of organic apple cider vinegar, and three vitamin C pills, to knock out a cold faster than it can knock me out...
...McClaine's late night bathroom escapades have lead to a clean bathroom sink, and a dirty toothbrush (he took it upon himself to clean the sink and counter with mommy's toothbrush)...
...my new nephew and his perfectly round noggin...
...Avery's quality time with her great grandma and great grandpa (Granny and Gramps) this weekend...
...roses in full bloom in November...
...the promise of a great mystery, "Christ in me, the hope of glory" and the opportunity to live it out (Col 1:27)...
...Oma's yellow cake with seven minute frosting and coconut...
...my Aunt Janice's birthday, and celebrating the Lord's redemptive work in her life...
...Opa playing guitar and singing with Reece while I bathe the big kids...
...the laughter of the kids as Caleb pushes them around the yard in a big orange wheelbarrow...
...another Monday, a chance to live in the Spirit, and not in the flesh, giving thanks throughout the day...

Will you join me?

holy experience

That's perfect, Tyne. I love it. AND I have been laughing at the toothbrush mohawk endlessly since I watched it the first time. So dang classic!
