Give Thanks . . . . With A Grateful Heart

73. Celebrating Mummus 92nd Birthday with her ~ what a blessing she is

74. Watching my daughter decorate a cake for her great~grandmother and the time and love she put into it ~ and all of our boys going and buying their own sweet cards for Mummu, and watching them give them to her so sweetly

75. Shopping for a long~awaited vacation ~ and an afternoon with my daughter ~ and Starbucks:) Dunkins Vanilla Chai for her, her favorite:)

76. Some more sap running for our sweet syrup

77. Kids who are responsible in their decisions

78. A Macro lens for my camera and lots of experimenting to do ~ and being able to capture the details in life that so many people don't notice

79. A new Bible Study starting

80. All of the snow is melted from our deck, the sap is running, and the frost heaves are UNBELIEVABLE! ~ Spring is coming!

81. Singing one of my all time favorite songs at church yesterday . . . "See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown?"

82. Opening the window before church yesterday, and a bird singing in the tree below

83. Our healthy family and so many reasons to rejoice

I came over from Ann’s linky today.

I remember that song from when I was a baby Christian. “give thanks with a grateful heart – give thanks to the holy one – give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ his son.” It was on cassette :) And now it’ll be in my head all day – thank you.

And my favorite from the list: was 82. Opening the window before church yesterday, and a bird singing in the tree below the last one (just because the thought of it made me smile – probably the same way it made you smile)

This was so good. Good for the heart. Thank you.

God Bless and Keep you and yours

Thanks for visiting:)
It's a great song, isn't it? Haha, it is a catchy little tune!
Yes, I openend the window and we have a Japanese Maple just below, and all of a sudden I heard a bird . . . looked out, and one bird sat singing just below the window. First time I've heard the birds since winter began. Lovely sound!
Thanks again for visiting:) God Bless You.

I love your Monday morning lists. Causes me to stop and think about what I should be thankful for.
What study are you starting? We have yet to find someone to step up and lead...

Thanks, Lyan:) Maria said it's a study on Daniel. Will know more tonight and let you know. Wanna come?? :) They said invite friends!
I wanted very much to start another one when we got home from vacation, but then they announced this one, so going to see what it's about.
