Multitude Monday

holy experience




Time to continue the list. Since my last Gratitude post, I've heard from more friends about how this list has encouraged them with their own thanks to our Father!

Glory be! It really does make us different!

0095-0111

0095
time away to learn the teaching craft; it give me great joy

0096
apple picking with friends; an autumn tradition continued, this time in the lovely mountains of New Hampshire

0097
Oldest son waving to me from across a field with an enthusiastic, "Hi, Mom!!!" So glad he still likes me. :)

0098
church retreat and living our lives with these dear friends

0099
our boys sitting at lunch table with a bunch of single friends from church, chatting and laughing together

0100
amazing foliage colors in NH! Glory!

0101
gospel teaching over the weekend and great discussions afterward

0102
stars...you can see so many of them when you leave the city!! I had forgotten.

0103
anticipation of a few days away with sweet husband! Fancy hotel, here we come!

0104
remembering God's faithfulness as I looked around at church friends over the weekend. He has done and is doing so much in our midst.

0105
time on my drive to Maine to really pray and sing and admire the creation

0106
sweet memories of our early years of marriage and living in lovely New England

0107
this morning, I woke up for a bit and then was allowed to go BACK TO SLEEP. It was that deep, sweet, relaxed sleep that I don't feel that I get very often. Mmmmmm.

0108
laughing with son #3 and seeing him grow in confidence

0109
holding Lucy, my sweet baby. The way I yearn for her is just a little picture of how the Father yearns for me. Can you believe it?!?

0110
thinking about the story of the prodigal son, and how maybe he felt when he saw his father RUNNING down the road toward him, all dignity and caution thrown to the wind. May I feel THAT love as I learn to authentically repent and move on in Christ's life.

0111
apple crisp from the fair and our SWEET friends who brought it to us! What did we do to deserve such a gift?

Thank you, Lord, for your goodness to us! You whisper your love in so many ways.
