Practicing Gratitude {1019 – 1028}

Still counting beyond one-thousand gifts…

Receiving info about and photos of our Compassion child Lucy in Kenya.

Living books — and how much I learn as I homeschool my kids!

A trip to the zoo!

I’ve seen elephants, giraffes, lions, zebras, and baboons in the wild.

Sisterly moments, cinnamon rolls for breakfast, a cute dog (who begs politely), and a newly rearranged living room.

Another year of wedded bliss and sweet words from my husband.

God always gives us a way out of temptation.

“…God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted [or tried] beyond what you are able [to endure], but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape…” 1 Corinthians 10:13

Homeschool moms further down the road who are willing to share their wisdom.

Spontaneous dinner invitation from good friends.

Being safe and cozy inside on a stormy night.
