Multitude Monday......on Wednesday: Gifts 335 - 349

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. " 
~W.T. Purkiser

335.  VBS

336.  Really good, perfectly sweet, perfectly crisp apples {my breakfast today ;) }

337.  Really cute fabric on sale

338.  Text messages that inform me of things/events that my children forget to tell me about ; )

339.  Email reminders from those who know me so well....and that I'm likely to forget certain obligations w/out them!!

340.  Those that aren't easily offended by my busy-ness and don't judge me as unfriendly or uncaring by my lack of time to do some things I'd like to do

341.  Friends who make me laugh.....because they are awesome ♥

342.  My children who think that I am so much more & so much better than I am

343.  Random "I Love You's" when I least expect them ♥

344.  Things to look forward to... (a trip this weekend!)

345.  Chance meetings that are anything but chance

346.  My Sweet Savior, who makes those things happen =)

347.  A song to sing..... every day ~ to praise, to worship, to cling to, to rejoice in.

348.  He always gives me one that expresses my heart's matter the circumstance

349.  How deep His love is for us...every day, every moment, every season.

♫How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom ♫
