Gifts This Week


Gifts that make my life worth living,
gifts that make my moments holy.
Not gifts that I wish for
but gifts that I have received.
Gifts that bring me back
into Joy and Gratitude.


sunshine filtering through the pines
taking an unfamiliar road, then winding over a hill to be surprised by an absolutely breathtaking view!
red flowers spilling over their basket
tap dancing
a cat nursing her kittens
coffee with hazelnut creamer
wriggling my toes down into the sand
two old men with a fiddle and an accordion making everyone’s toes tap on the street corner
God’s constantly-changing brush splashing out a beautiful sunset
sailboats on the lake
long conversations over lunch
the giggling of young girls
dark curls ringing a round four-year-old face with laughing, mischievous eyes
saxophone music


Thank you for another beautiful week, Lord!

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    Perhaps if we (especially myself) took more time to recognize the small things in life, the little things that touch our hearts, yet we barely know it, then we would be less stressed all the time, and more capable of giving God the glory He deserves.

    I loved the last one – Sxophone music.  That’s me, I have played the sax for many years and really enjoy it everytime I get it out.
