gifts and giving… and a freebie for you!

It’s late… but it’s still Monday… still the day I have chosen to be my “counting day.”  I join in with the gratitude community at Ann’s to count the grace gifts that the Great Gifter bestows upon me… without prejudice to my failures, my unfaithfulness, my blemishes.


… and my forgetfulness.  My soul forgets much!  So often, I think “this, THIS is a gift!” only to forget in the next moment.  I forget and never remember again…. 


…so I list those I remember, lest I forget.


… for a friend who listens without judgement
… for accountability
… for “so, what are you going to do about it?”
… for open windows in an empty parking lot on March 19
… for the bugs that kept flying in the open windows


… for the color of new green
… for sunrises and sunsets
… for new friends who generously share their front row seat to the sun setting
… for following the signs of a bonfire and surprise visits
… for adventure


… for mid-morning texts “can I take you out to lunch today?”
… for a marriage that has weathered much
… for quiet conversations amid the noise of life
… for a man who knows what I don’t say
… for the ways he answers without words


… for children who love me, who love him, who love each other
… for those who say “he’s such a good kid!”
… for others who say, “she ministered to me today!”
… for the compliment of “I love that girl!” 
… for family laughs and family fun


… for the quiet whisper tonight “how long will you listen to his lies?”
… for the taste of freedom
… for redemption
… for resurrection
… and new life in HIM!


…. He is faithful and gifts and gives and gifts some more.  More than I could ever ask or imagine.  He is that good… all the time!

  1. I was late with my Multitudes on Mondays post, too, but got it in before midnight (my time). I absolutely loved all of these…… for a marriage that has weathered much… for quiet conversations amid the noise of life… for a man who knows what I don't say… for the ways he answers without words

I'd love to know what you think...
