Catching up on blessings

They’re gifts…placed in every day. Laughs. Provision. Sometimes they are beautiful from the start and sometimes they start ugly or painful and transform into things of beauty at a later date.

Blessings.

Have you counted yours lately?

2260. Prayer….the ability and privilege to talk to God.

2261. …and the blessing of a response.

2263. A fabulous Christmas card from an equally fabulous family- all “ducked” out in their Dynasty finest.

The beauty of old things. Craftsman took pride in everything from the frivolous to the functional.

What a blessing to see these things so many years later. Sharing pieces of our country’s history with our children.wpid-20131230_113553.jpg
