[Chilly] Gratitude Monday









#184... restful sleep
#185... Cody on his bed, curled, with nose tucked beneath his tail
#186... feelings of expectancy
#187... reading in John 1 how Jesus didn't just call the 12 disciples -- He already knew them
#188... being more than 29 weeks pregnant!
#189... the rising sun's light touching only certain mountain peaks
#190... showering
#191... buying tables at Wal-Mart with the Best Husband Ever
#192... Lio stretching tall against me for petting
#193... playing cards with loved ones when it's cold outside

On Mondays, I catch you up on the beautiful gifts -- both large and small, hard and comfortable -- that God has been throwing my way.  Read more about my gratitude adventure here, and start your own One Thousand Gifts adventure by clicking on the banner below.

    Aww... I love the paw prints in the snow! Restful sleep is such a gift. #188... yay! Playing cards when it's cold outside is so much fun. :)

  2. Today I've been grateful for having a nice safe place to live in.. and appreciating more and more a person whom I met some months ago, who moved across the country to be with me and who's made a huge difference in my life <3 And I'm grateful for finding this new blog of yours, Beth, you always inspire me one way or another!

  3. Thank you so much, Bhakti! :) Safe places for living in are good.

    Thank you, Jennifer! The cold makes all of the indoor activities that much more fun.

  4. Snow snow looks so pretty. If I want to see it I have to look at pictures. We only have the warm, white stuff here. (beach sand..hehe) Your photos are the one with the tiny foot prints.

  5. Thanks, Regina! I know what you mean -- sometimes, I wish the only snow we got was in photos! :)
