i won't be doing a 1000 gifts list per say but i will be more mindful of my thankfulness. i will continue to write them down as i feel lead in my own journal. while i can't imagine getting thrilled over grated cheese or soapy suds, i will make mention to the lord of his good. i will thank him for opening my eyes to even more glimpses of him and his unspeakable joy.
bringing me JOY today ~
:: sharing the story of Jesus ~ He's ALIVE! to 11 bright eyed preschoolers. many of them looked up at me with such wonder. then we did the resurrection biscuits . . . baked a marshmallow inside a biscuit. the biscuit is empty just like the tomb. "ms. skammer the marshmallow is gone . . . just like Jesus!" one little darlin exclaimed!
:: jacob calling me back to his room last night to pray with him.
:: godly girlfriends ~ their friendship, wisdom & support. one dropped afternoon plans just to *listen*
:: ben's already sporting a farmer's tan ~ i couldn't help but smile when he came down the other night; he was definitely trying to dilly dally his way from bed time but it was a reminder that summer is on it's way!
:: the words from a friend/coworker attached to a cd
:: the relief from allergy issues
:: and how can one not smile when looking at this little dude. some of those bangles & beads are soooooo old. glad i hadn't gotten rid of them!
:: in being content ~ philippians 4:11-13 ~ an ongoing prayer
