Multitude Monday: 1,000 Gifts 144 - 156

holy experience



For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

144.  Finding someone else's Thankful List ~ this particular one was prompted by my husband as behavior modification for a bad attitude, thus his ranking further down the list than he would normally be ; )

145.  Hearing "thank you" from my children

146.  Overhearing giggling and happy chatter while my children dust and sweep each other's rooms.....thanks to our variation on a cute Valentine's idea





147.  My daughter waiting for my hair straightener and upon seeing her little brother's clothes for church sitting on the ironing board, gets to work.....without being asked ♥

148.  A butterscotch oatmeal cookie on the counter, wrapped with care ~ the helpful daughter from above had an all-day middle school event at church yesterday, and thought she'd help her crazy-rushing-around-mother get her lunch started.  She didn't make her sandwich, didn't put her Chex Mix in a zip-top baggie, and didn't get her water bottle......but she DID get her cookie.  Priorities are everything ; )

149.  Bartering talents & services : )

150. "Thank you for posting that...." ~ after a post I almost didn't post

151.  Two hours of a blissfully quiet house with the soothing sound of rain on the windows

152.  Long, hot baths at the end of long, hard days

153.  Swiss Miss DARK hot chocolate ~ BOGO + coupons : )

154.  The way He has of sending someone to lift me up just when someone else has let me down

155.  His Word.....full of promises

156.  Hymns and songs, that reach past the walls I sometimes put up and remind me of those promises.......so that my heart is ready to receive the Truth in His Word
