Multitude Monday - #51-66

Gratitude - a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation, as for gifts or favours;
the state of feeling grateful

Thank You, Lord for.....

~51. a day filled with laughter and shopping with family (twice in one weekend!)


~52. the fact that my family was "ALL together" this Christmas....every single one...parents, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmother, grandfather, and even every single married/grafted in ones -- I am blessed!!


~53. the big beautiful snowstorm that dumped 12 inches in a routinely non-white Christmas area that I live in

~54. my mom, a eating healthy expert, who is helping me detox this week to shed those unwanted pounds that have creeped in over the past few months

~55. giggles with my girlfriends -- Mom & Kasi -- great times, remembering & reminiscing


~56. a new year to draw closer to, to be loved by, and to walk in grace with my precious FATHER

~57. my dad, who gets us firewood, puts the lights on the Christmas tree, and even goes and gets us "another" size in the dressing room without complaining



~58. the cozy fireplaces during our winter snowstorm/blizzard

~59. discovering new music like that of JJ Heller....spoken to my very soul in a moment of sheer agony



~60. watching my husband sport his new "style" today -- that man is just so adorable!


~61. visiting with my besties last week -- one of us just had a baby, one is going to get married this year, and one of us is embarking on some new twists and turns this year

~62. beautiful words from incredible bloggers out there that just blow me away with their insight and wisdom


~63. although the snow has melted, the world still looks so beautiful and fresh this morning

~64. having heart-to-hearts with Mom, Sis, Tricia, Alison, Stacey, Arno

~65. His Word - like honey, like manna, like fresh running water to my heart and soul

~66. making me me -- even though in this season, I have found myself finding so much fault with myself, I see HIS precious hand drawing me in and molding me and using the ME that HE created me to be....He is faithful to complete the work He started in me....

I have joined The Gratitude Community -- a place to be inspired by others and what God is doing in their lives, a chance to share my own journey of gratitude, and an opportunity to REMEMBER to be grateful in ALL things. So on Mondays, I will add to my list of 1000 gifts of all the graces God has provided in my life. Would you consider joining me? Even if you don't blog, you can join the gratitude community by starting a gratitude journal, mentionning your gifts on Facebook, or sending e-mails to your friends. Let's work together to help in creating a more thankful, joyous world!!
