Joys of the Journey

We need deliberately to call to mind the joys of our journey. Perhaps we should try to write down the blessings of one day. We might begin; we could never end; there are not pens or paper enough in all the world. George A. Buttrick

holy experience

It's Monday, and I continue to name and count them one by one.....

35.  faces of those we love and don't see often
36.  getting life out of gratitude
37.  photos shared
38.  safe road trips for antique shopping
39. delicious lunch in a small town
40. wonderful gently used chair at a great price
41.  a healed wound
42.  beauty of canned banana peppers after the smell of hot vinegar
43.  no set alarm clock on Saturday morning
44.  coffee cups and husband on weekend mornings
45.  a husband with an open Bible
46.  thoughts that can be placed on paper
47.  observing a true worshipper in Sunday morning worship service
48. looking at Mr. Earl's treasures and some of his memories shared
49.  my mother came home from the hospital
50.  phone call from our oldest telling of his plans for a visit

Faces we don't get to see as often as we would like.

As I head to work this morning, some items on your list make me stop and reflect on things I hadn't thought of which I should be thankful for too...."a husband with an open Bible" is one of them. I'm making plans to go visit my eldest and I can relate to how excited you must be to see yours soon. Have a great day!
