Multitude Monday

holy experience

Here are some of the things I was thankful for this week:
  • 597.  Learning to believe and speak
  • 596.  His prayer also that God would help him help any kids who were nervous at VBS
  • 595.  My six year old's spontaneous prayers for a friend who is anxious about VBS
  • 594. Celebrating the life of mother and grandmother we lost one year ago
  • 593. Feeling more blessed than anyone we "served"
  • 592. The opportunity to bless by hosting, serving, feeding
  • 591. Church family gathering at our home for baptisms
  • 590. Watching the kids savor their time with their (now) faraway friends
  • 589. Spending time with friends home from overseas
  • 588. Getting ready for a blessed gathering- errands, organizing, praying
  • 587. Learning the songs and signs for VBS- can't wait!
  • 586. Still getting dinner on the table despite the unexpected and lengthy errand
  • 585. Remembering to take care of an important task for church just in time
  • 584. Quite possibly the funniest interest my boys have ever gotten in to- mastering step aerobics on the Wii Fit! Laughter is medicine for the soul!
  • 583. Watching them freely pile toys on the giveaway pile until it covered the whole playroom rug!
  • 582. No complaints from my little workers!
  • 581. Working alongside my 3 to get the playroom cleaned out and organized
  • 580. A productive planning meeting
  • 579. Special aunt who lovingly cared for my little girl while the boys and I were out
  • 578. Fighting not to let the inconveniences and the lack of grace in the world take away from a beautiful day
  • 577. A day of fun with friends on our day trip
  • 576. Peace during the "looking for tickets moments" because I know He has the best plans for us
  • 575. Ticket lost then found in time for our day trip with friends
  • 574. Watching little boy learn to ride a two wheeler- his determination and courage
  • 573. A perfect Sunday- church service, fellowship and breaking bread together, playing outside with our children, a simple, delicious meal, lots of love
You can find my running list of 1,000 gifts in the sidebar and read why I got started here.

Don't you just love impromptu prayers from the heart of a little one?!! So sweet!

No complaints and learning step aerobics! As a mommy of little princes in our castle, I can smile with you today.

As always a joy to splash around in thankfulness. Your blog, simply delightful.

Splashin' in His goodness,
Sara

Ugh, that e-mail fiasco was so stressful, Mary. We were going to a National Monument and I was finally like, "Ok Lord are you trying to keep us away from there to keep us safe? If that's the case, prevent us from getting there!!!"

Yes, Michelle, I LOVE to hear sincere prayer from my kids and their voices lifted in worship just melts my heart!
