One Thousand Gifts 341 - 350

The gentle beauty of snow

For apple trees that stay strong in winter.

For beautiful sunrises on the way to work.

for early morning coffee together
for glowing lights in the wintry snow

for incredible family fun!

for joyful moments at work

for patience at work when things are not so joyful

for a patient husband who waits

for a sister who listens

for peaceful sleep at night.

For these and so much more
Thank you

So very grateful for #335 & 336

This Friday my son Jason was in a car accident.
He's okay!
Thank you Lord!
A woman driving excessively fast swerved into his lane
causing the car ahead of Jason to drive off the road
and Jason's car to be side-swiped all the way from
the front of the car to the back.
He has a few stitches on the side of his head and arm.

# 336Family Gathered.
It was a confirming weekend.
A Confirmation of Love.

...A Still Retreat ...

I dream of Pemberley.
...A Jane Austen retreat waiting for me up on a hill...

"Every disposition of the ground was good; and she looked on the whole scene, the river, the trees scattered on its banks, and the winding of the valley, as far as she could trace it."
Jane Austen
 *  *  *
I remember that my Heavenly Father
prepares for me
a Glorious Kingdom retreat
every time I meet Him. 

 *  *  *
And now,
. . . Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett . . .

~ a humble retreat ~

...look up and see...

Be Still and Know
Be Still
