Naming the graces of today

Name the Graces...seashells that my husband I have collected from many beaches over the years.
First cup of coffee in the morning (in Bethany's red mug)!!
Stillness of the water reminding me that God is creator of all things beautiful.
Candles illuminating
A new day of life
Robert's Visa - provisions from Jehovah Jireh
Pictures of time spent in Kenya displayed throughout

This is such a simple, yet beautiful post. It's so important to remember and be thankful for the little things we take for granted so many times

Hey, Lady, I have been negligent in coming around to your place to see what you have been up to. But here I am now.

Right now the Rolling Stones are singing "I Can't Get No.." and that is pretty hilarious in reflection of your post about gratitude.

Denine, I am a dichotomous sonofabitch. I worship daily; maybe Karl told you that I consider myself a brother of Christ and that is heady stuff, but I can't do anything about it. He is right here all the time and it is how I became me: He is right here and it is cool with me and when Jesus is always present it is hard to do a lot of stuff ya might otherwise do but whatever, since He is my brother I go ahead and do it and thus the dichotomy of being me.

But He is right here and that is pretty cool. I don't know why, but I got Him. I didn't even have to ask.

Peace, Sister. This will all work out. I look forward to meeting you. I'll be as normal as I can, which ain't much. But no animals will be harmed and everybody will get a T-shirt.

yer pal, tj
