Recognizing the little gifts...

holy experience

Nothing deep today...just posting additions to my list of 1000 gifts that I've learned to recognize over the past week--many of which are little things I have too often taken for granted.

116. My bread machine paddle being found (in the compost heap in the yard!)

117. The crocuses on the side of the house

118. Moose tracks ice cream

119. Pizza

120. Mozzarella cheese

121. Cheddar cheese (yes, I love cheese)

122. Robins in the yard

123. The mirror reflection on the neighbor’s pond.


124. The wonderful, inspiring, and confirming series of messages I listened to last week.

125. A free downloadable copy of A Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research

126. Learning about how George Washington Carver walked with God

127. Buds on the lilac

128. A family picture that is newer than 10 years old.


129. And 2 Corinthians 2:12 - And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness."

    I would never even go looking in my compost heap for anything! eugh! Glad you found it though.

    Hahaha, Zoe! I actually didn't. I had wondered, over the week it was missing, whether it had somehow landed in the compost bin before it went out...but I assumed it would be impossible to find, if that had happened. And I wasn't sure how it could have happened. So I didn't look. I suppose I was ignoring God's leading there....but He honored my requests anyway! My son went out to bring some more out...and just happened to spy it half-buried! God is so good!

    I love new buds I see in my yard. Robins too.

    I love the family photo you shared on this post. Is that you? This is the first time I'm seeing you after over a year of just reading you and "hearing" what's on your heart.

    Lovely picture.

    Haven't been around on blogworld much... but it is always good to drop by your place.

    I also loved the photo of the reflection on the pond, and the buds!
