heed these things

fall leaves by beth, on Pix-O-Sphere

Let the one who is wise heed these things 
and ponder the loving deeds of the LORD.

771. completely surprised, surrounded by friends on my birthday
772. at a local (completely) vegan restaurant
773. a bouquet of jewel-tone balloons just for me
774. looking back on another year of blessings
775. discussing with friends the foundations of our faith
776. over whipped cream-topped slices of pumpkin cheesecake
777. learning about owls and watching one in our backyard
778. sprouting pumpkin seeds
779. in pots handpainted by my littles
780. my handsome men and their fresh buzzcuts
781. coughs and sneezes forcing a day of rest
782. spiced up homemade lentil soup
783. my first batch of homemade Belgian waffles
784. our home filled with scents of the season
785. a community of like-minded, encouraging, online friends
786. my husband checking the storm radar for me at 2am
787. and helping me carry our sleeping babies downstairs to our bedroom, because he knows i'll only sleep during a storm if they are within arms reach
788. sitting amongst and praising God with addicts, homeless, downcast, and abused at church
789. walls thin enough to hear my kiddos singing karaoke 
790. dress-up outfits in their sizes and on sale
791. my kids wanting to wear their costumes every day
792. asking for prayer and immediately feeling peace
793. a basket full of organic apples
794. the opportunity to travel and meet other Christian women bloggers... again
795. a free movie code for at-home date night
796. siblings getting along- their belly laughs
797. the opportunity to help a friend's nonprofit
798. a hospitable home
799. dozens of children absorbed in a puppet show teaching the truth about Halloween

pondering His loving deeds in the every day...
