Multitude 10.17.11

Giving thanks to God in community for His gifts ...

plenty of good food in my pantry
lots of clean running water available throughout my house
being a small part of operation christmas child
the sharing of clean water
the sharing of good food

God the Father -who gives good gifts
God the Son - the greatest gift
God the Holy Spirit - who remains and keeps giving gifts like peace & joy
when children sing praise -  not hindered by hardship, not restrained by pride
when adults truly sing praise - unhindered through hardship, humbly unrestrained

Elizabeth wearing her pink Texas Rangers hat backwards
Mari Alice noticing that she and I "match both together"
Ashlin making wise choices for so many days in a row
Ardyn making lunch for her sisters...with cheer...and a great deal of butter
Luke asking me for help as he prepares to share with an atheist in his class
Landen carrying my heavy box if it delighted him

Philip choosing freedom
Friends who agree to intercede...and really do
Hugs from that kind of friend
When blessings come in disguise
