However, right now it is time to reflect on the blessings this past week brought.
1. Sometimes, it is the little things. My vincas looked so pretty in their bucket planters. I knew you'd want to see them!
|Still loving my Welcome Bench - a yard sale treasure!|
2. Saturday was a good day: Lunch with our youngest and things accomplished at home. I love days like that!
3. Monday, of course, was Labor Day here in the United States. I was off work and spent the entire day at home. We grilled out and had our oldest daughter over for dinner. One of my favorite kind of days!
4. Thursday was our middle daughter's birthday. While we didn't get to be with her, I enjoyed pictures of her and the babies. I am thankful for the wife and mother she has become.
Sometimes it is hard to believe that this girl:
was once my little girl!
Well, she will always be my little girl ...
5. Quote of the week:
I love Zephaniah 3:17 where it talks about God singing over His children with joy, but it also says this:
"... He will create calm with his love ..." Zephaniah 3:17 (Common English Bible)
What a blessing that whenever all seems chaotic we can focus on His love and we will become calm. After all, we know if we are His child, He loves us, everything will work out.
