Abundant Blessings



Every day there is something to give thanks for

something that brings joy to our souls.

Some days these joys

small or big

just have to be consciously  looked for

other days they over flow from the moment we awake.

Continuing to count God's gifts to us...

Warm days
Watching the kindness of strangers to other strangers
Falling asleep to the sound of rain
Colour!! It's everywhere now -- inside and outside
My new stove top and ovens (yes ovens plural)
Two cakes baked by Peach
Nesting robins
The little finch that serenades us off and on all day. Talk about put her heart and soul into song!
An encouraging phone call from our adoption agency
Big kids playing with little kids
Our plumber who goes above and beyond the call of duty to give us a working kitchen sink on a Saturday
Pizza night with my brother and family
Sleepovers
Jump rope songs being sung constantly around the house
Various coffee dates with various friends
Awesome neighbours
Weekends with blogging friends visiting
Sermons that speak to our hearts
Nursery duty for sweet baby fixes
A house that is beginning to look like a home again
Safe travels for the Engineer
rhubarb pie
modern medicine
easy clean floors
rubber boots
umbrellas
fantastic teachers and coaches
flannel to cotton sheets
productive days
learning of the call to travel for another adoptive family! So excited for them!
curling up with a good movie to watch
sleep -- sweet blissful sleep

Counting our blessings #'s 1138-1173

May your week be filled with abundant gifts too!

  1. Love your list! I love falling asleep to the sound of rain too... brings back the good childhood memories from the Philippines. :-)

  2. Deborah,
    That cake looks so delicious! Notice that of all the lovely items on your list, I gravitated directly to the food, right???
    I also enjoy falling to sleep to the rain and believe it or not we have had cool days, too.

  3. A lovely list! The one that stuck out for me right away was "Big kids playing with little kids." I love that, too. I especially enjoy when my older son plays with visiting toddlers. It's very sweet!
