My heart is filled thankfulness...

...to Him who walks beside; who floods my weaknesses with strength and causes fear to fly; whose every promise is enough for every step I take, sustaining me with arms of love and crowning me with grace.
- Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend (I really like THIS version of this song)

Summer is winding down (WAHHHHHHHH! no, no, NO...stomp, stomp, pout, pout, wrestle, punch, grrrr...sniff).
I have three days of teacher meetings this week and a TON of stuff to do for school.
That is to say nothing of the remaining two birthdays of Summer Birthday Season which are this week and my determination to have at least ONE more summerish day, maybe a beach day if the rain will let up (not complaining at all; the rain is welcome and needed; even if it weren't, I shouldn't complain, now, should I?!?)
I'm going to continue my list, as there are so many many ways the Father shows me His love, if only I will look and notice and acknowledge Him.
