Let everything that has breath...

...Praise the Lord!  These have been long, snowy, sick days.  But while I have breath, I will give thanks and sing praise!  I am so grateful for the word He has given me for 2011-  breathe.

Seth has struggled to breathe. Josh took him to the ER with croup Thursday morning.  And I am given fresh insight into my word for 2011.  He knows!  oh, He knows just what I need.  and I am grateful.

Counting, as natural as breathing these days... if I don't count, I might just suffocate...

#2735.  morning kisses.
#2736.  "mommy, you're beautiful."

#2737.  sunlight streaming in- illuminating our days
#2738.  brothers enjoying Christmas toys
#2739.  peace and joy

  
#2740.  glittery, snowflake centerpiece.
#2741.  beauty in the middle of it all.
#2742.  candles flickering
#2743.  snowflakes stitched and starched by hands now gone. a piece of history.

#2744.  waking to the winter white falling silently from the sky
#2745.  piles of snow
#2746.  heaps of waffles
#2747.  freshly ground coffee brewing


#2748.  lazy saturday with family
#2749.  card game while boys napped
#2750.  hot chocolate on a snowy day

#2751.  date night- a much needed break
#2752.  shower. blow dryer. make-up.
#2753.  feeling beautiful
#2754.  wearing clothes without snot or stains :)
#2755.  being in this together
#2756.  wood-grilled shrimp bruscetta- fresh and delicious

#2757.  Your Word- a lamp to my feet and a light to my path
#2758.  always spoken in love
#2759.  ever true
#2760.  life-giving

  9. Kelly I love everything on this list! ...except the shrimp :) My youngest had croup chronically for what seemed like forever. Hang in there - they seem to eventually outgrow it. Hope you have a great week. I prayed for your sweet family today :)
