Multitudes on Monday – continuing in gratitude

 Joining with Ann Voskamp’s Monday gratitude group
(although I cannot for the life of me copy her button – 
it just doesn’t paste when I hit the key!)
Last week’s photo list proved to be a really positive way for me to list my thanks – it colored how I looked at each day,
lending an extra set of eyes in a way.
(And caused me to make sure a camera was nearby.)
God is good, life is good (even when it’s hard),
and I am grateful.
So, it continues…
11. My baby with his baby on birthday #39 – 
such a good man and good daddy;


12.  Grandgirl number one’s first tooth gap – so proud!
 13. ah, a trial run for the wedding day – 
so happy for our girl to have found happiness after loss;
14.  Our birthday gift veggie garden flourishing – 
and providing fabulous beans/zucchini/crookneck 
for dinner each night this week; 
 15.  This face – what more can I say?
 16.  These two – enjoying each other on Friday;
17. These eyes, windows to heaven;
 18.  Getting this guy up and running for the summer –
love the sound of water splashing as we fall asleep;
 19. Silent Saturday – 1st Saturday of the month –
3 hours of silence and prayer;
 20.  The scent of jasmine as we took our silent,
slow-stepping walks between centering prayer sessions;
 21.  practicing discipline, even with each step;
 22. Discovering a splashing stream on my way back to my car;
 23. Continuing the silence in my 2nd office – at the beach,
on a rainy June Saturday;
 24. Still too much stuff – BUT – the 2-offices-into-1 are finally organized – thank you, Jesus!
 25.  And it will be a perfect space to meet with directees
and the Holy Spirit;
26.  A desk surrounded by pieces of my story –
a story for which I am so grateful!

  1. Such beautiful photos and a lovely family. Your prayer walk was precious too as I walked with you. I too have trouble getting the buttons to paste, and I have not quite got the swing of this. I am following a friend who reads the posts on either side of her entry and you are to my left and I did enjoy your post. I began my blog a year ago to write down my stories about my childhood so my children would have a record. Then I discovered others enjoy real stories too. 🙂

  2. What great photos and I love your list.
