Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
~ James 1:17
Quiet time at dawn,
My skinny, cranky little Bud-Jack.
Unexpected visitors who want to go to the library with us,
Christmas music while I fold towels,
Power outage in the living room – sometimes it’s nice to sit a spell in the dark.
Spring-like temps with rain that makes it feel even more like spring,
An Advent plan ready to go,
A day with nothing to do but homeschool, cook and clean (finally!).
Books with kids,
Handwashing the floor (must burn more calories, right?),
HUGE rainbow out front – SO beautiful.
Kids-eat-free at Chick-Fil-A on Tuesdays,
A husband who takes me there instead of making me cook,
Lights back on in the living room.
My Grandma’s Crumb Cake recipe (espe.cially convenient when I have no eggs),
A very pleasant trip to a library with pleasant librarians and my library buddy,
A relatively cleaned out car that Bud-Jack helped me with .
A God who loves my kids even more than I do – a perfect, loving Heavenly Father.
Brothers riding bikes together,
A bit without the internet.
Mini M&Ms and Wilton’s food coloring markers.
Just one thing to do today. . .
Grab your journal or a piece of paper or a computer and jot down this wonderful day of Advent every small and big gift God gives you today – thank Him for each and every one. And consider blogging these gifts and sharing your list at A Holy Experience.
