17 In Faith

Multitude Mondays

Today I am linking up with the community of grace seekers over at A Holy Experience. I am counting my gifts.  I find them in the ordinary, every day, often mundane things in life.  I am surrounded by beauty.  God is opening my eyes and gratitude is growing deep in my heart.

61.  The promises of God, and the ability to “speak life” to my spirit man on hard days.
62.  Worship that makes my heart soar!
63.  Lunch with good friends.
64.  A God who delights in me, even in my brokenness.
65.  Times of laughter and shopping with my little sis!
66.  My children running to the door to great me when I come home.
67.  A husband who puts up with my mood swings.
68.  Quick healing of my youngest child from Bronchitis and Pneumonia this week.
69.  The peace of God in the midst of uncertainty.
70.  The ability to stand in the gap and release peace and healing over our land.

How about you?  What are you thankful for today?  Please share with me in the comment section or link up to a community of grace seekers at A Holy Experience.

    Wow, I love your new blog design. Beautiful. Clean. So refreshing.

    And I love reading your thanks. Thanksgiving has changed my life. I love to thank God for life, especially when I am grumbling or in a funky mood. Love Ann’s heart and site.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Switching to a self hosted site has been good, but I’ve lost many of my Blogger readers.

    Hugs from Colorado,

    I love your new website design! Gorgeous! Your thankful list is awesome. I especially like #61 and #70. I have to constantly remind myself of the power God has given us through what we speak over ourselves, and others. Thank you for sharing. You are a constant encourager. 🙂

    Always enjoy your “gift list” – such a great reminder! Yes, the gal did eat the waffles and chicken with syrup. Just not for me, but she sure did devour it. :o)

    Hi Barbie:

    I enjoyed reading your list of blessings. I like the looks of your new site…I haven’t made the decision to move to WordPress. I tried a wordpress.com blog for a while, but moved back to blogger. However, a self hosted WordPress blog would probably be a better option.

    I clicked over from Ann’s link.

    I heart picking a favorite from each list – my favorite from yours this week is: 69. The peace of God in the midst of uncertainty. (oh that peace that passes understanding – we shouldn’t have it – he gives it to us – we (read I) give it back half the time – but it’s invaluable – I heart this one – and needed to hear it today) {smile} and thank you for this.

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