Today as I sit here watching the sunrise through the fog shrouded fields I can't help but think of all the many blessings bestowed upon us.  Some little, some large but all precious just the same!

  • a husband who has served his country well and is once again able to be at home to spend this holiday with our family.
  • a son who is employed in this precarious economy, able to work today
  • friends who opened their home to us so that we might share this day with them
  • family far and wide, even though we don't get to see them often we love them dearly and cherish the times when we are together
  • a roof over our heads, small by the standard of some but DEFINITELY more than large enough for our needs... a veritable mansion by the standards of so much of the world... a place we love to call HOME!!
  • a LORD who willingly gave HIS own life as a sacrifice and rose again defeating death, ultimately paying the price for my sin and yours.... a gift, as long as we are willing to accept it.  to ask forgiveness, and have HIM as LORD and SAVIOR of our lives!
  • a country where we are currently able to worship freely and speak freely about our relationship with the LORD, without fear of reprisal and persecution.
  • for another with my family!
  • for friends, near and far... in real life and blog wide.  so many near and dear to my heart!
