Gifts of Grace

With a full week and a growing "Do-List", I should not have been surprised when God gave me the following:

 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.  John 14:27  

 Also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will,    Ephesians 1:11  

We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,  
2 Corinthians 10:5  

 Deep Sigh...

  1. Teacher's answer books
  2. Sleeping all night
  3. Microwave ovens
  4. college scholarships
  5. Sturdy board books for little ones
  6. Public libraries
  7. Homemade chocolate cake with homemade whipped filling
  8. laughter at the dinner table
  9. Dandelions - sign of Spring and fun for little ones
  10. Dimpled grins
  11. Mops to clean up vomit

I wrote a comment and then lost it!! Sorry for the "vomit" ...that is a mom's life. I do love the picture you included and the verses you shared brightened the overcast day after a night of hail storms (and children joining us in between the "comforters"). Hope you have a day of great joy in Jesus!

You are so blessed...vomit and all! God is so good!! Ck this out!!


Love your list, Lynnet. Was your "deep sigh" one one relief or exhaustion?

Praying for you today . . . for some surprises to lighten you to do list.

Wow on the last one! Hats off to you. And great verse.

And on the detergent, someone gave me a sample of Crunchy Clean detergent. I would like to make my own some time though. Do you have a recipe?

I’m here today from Ann’s Multitude Monday link.

First of all – welcome to the community of counters. I’ve found the counting of the blessings to be a blessing of its own. And the reading of the list – love that! And “my peace I leave you” I heart that verse!!!!

Of your thank you’s this week the one that is my favorite is: Dandelions - sign of Spring and fun for little ones (because although I appreciate the last one – I really couldn’t make that one the favorite – I’ll settle for the scourge of lawns – but those puffballs are ingenious – and the flowers are pretty – and you have to give them credit for deep roots!!) (◠‿◠) My heart is glad I stopped by to read this.

God bless you and keep you – and all of yours.
