It's really a great thing to do; a matter of counting your blessings, so to speak. I'm always able to find at least five - and sometimes more.
First on my list: Enjoying a week of stay-cation. There is nothing I like better than days filled with small to-do projects, trips to the lake, and let's not forget sleeping in. I could live a life of retirement very easily! (I mean, if we don't think about money ...)
Secondly, it's been beautiful around here since the rain has stopped. We had some anxious days watching the flash flood reports and observing the stages of the rising Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. Thankfully, all is well, and the by-product of all this rain are some gorgeous roses!
Number 3 on my list is dozing in the sun lakeside. I've been able to do it three times this month!
Fourthly, Mother's Day was a lovely day with all my kid-lings. I couldn't have asked for a sweeter time.
Finally, a scripture that has been speaking to me recently:
Praise be to the Lord, to God my Savior, who daily bears my burdens. Psalm 68:19
Some translations say He "daily loadeth us with benefits." Either way, doing the daily with Him is so comforting ...
And that's a wrap on recent doings on the Journey. How was YOUR week? I'd love to know! Leave a comment, or consider linking up and sharing your 5 favorites at Susanne's space, Living to Tell the Story.
