Multitude Monday: Gifts 363 - 387

"If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily." 
~ Gerald Good 

I'm slowly but surely getting started on my New Year's Resolutions, one of them being getting back to my blog. =)  What better day to make a come-back than Multitude Monday & adding to my ever-growing list of thankfulness, which is actually much bigger than any number could ever reach.

Picking up where I left off......

363.  the holidays are OVER!! maybe sad, but true.....they exhaust me & stress me out!

364.  sore muscles {another NY's Resolution ; ) }......perhaps it's weird, but I've always liked the feeling of sore muscles when I haven't worked out in a while or push myself to a new level.  Makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something! ; )

365.  a new sewing machine =)

366.  chilly nights

367.  mild days

368.  healthy meals 

369.  that moment of realization that a long-ago prayer was answered, one that was prayed for / pleaded for repeatedly, over & over again until I finally gave up, stopped asking and moved on......

370.  ......and being struck with the knowledge that He didn't forget even though part of me did, that He heard my cries, and gave me double of what I asked for ♥

371. knowing that forgiveness was granted in response to the remorse I felt at not recognizing it sooner

372.  friendships that come into your life at the perfect time, bringing with them

373.  that feeling of kindred spirits,

374.  laughter,

375.  silliness,

376.  prayer partners,

377.  accountability,

378.  and someone who understands so completely that you know without a doubt that it was all His doing

379.  exasperating, frustrating, heart-breaking, hurtful, judgemental, maddening people...... because in the end, they are blessings, too.....

380.  for they send me running straight to Him, who

381.  calms my fears,

382.  dries my tears,

383.  renews a right spirit within me,

384.  and brings to a closer, more intimate walk in order to keep my 

385.  Joy,

386.  Peace, 

387.  and Faith.....regardless of what 2012 throws my way ; )

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions?  Have you started them?  If not, I'm a firm believer in the philosophy that it's never to late!! ; )
