a heart to praise

O for a heart to praise my God! by lacybekah, on Pix-O-Sphere

i worship the One who sends the blessings. everything and every moment comes from His hands. and i am thankful. so thankful. for the gifts He has trusted me with....

131. my husband's safety in a could-be-worse car wreck.
132. a little boy who is just as sweet as he is tough.
133. {almost} 6 years of this miraculous gift called motherhood, the gift that fills my heart and keeps on giving.
134. a kitchen conducive for slow dancing to The Platters.
135. jeggings.
136. my big, red, safe, reliable truck.
137. a room full of long-time family friends, even grieving.
138. discipline to endure the Daniel Fast.
139. step-stools in the public bathroom at church for little ones to reach the sink.
140. French coffee.
141. easy transitions, peaceful bedtimes, and restful nights.
142. words of wisdom, that don't seem like mine, that help my children understand.
143. a team of mighty prayer warriors who will read an email, stop whatever they're doing, and pray.
144. the droves of people who bid, generously, on Mercy Benefit Day.
145. more life for Grandma Jewel.

there are a Thousand, Endless Gifts... i count them one by one, with a heart of praise and thanksgiving for my Jehovah-Jireh.
