Counting Blessings - day 23

  1. Puzzles - this afternoon the children and I tried to make enough puzzles to go around our living room rug.   For Christmas they were given a mega puzzle box containing 12 puzzles.  We managed to get 11 done!  :O)  Was a really fun afternoon just being on the floor playing with my kiddies.
  2. Beth Moore - I have a little book called, Praying God's Word Day by Day and it's written by Beth Moore.  It's a lovely little book.  She has written some very encouraging works.  I am thankful for her.
  3. Playmobil - I absolutely loved playing with this when I was a kiddy and my boys really enjoy it too - can be source to hours of imaginary play.  
  4. A Ladies Conference - In just 3 days I'm off on a weekend retreat to be encouraged and inspired.  I'm really looking forward to it, although will miss my little family.
  5. Bananas - I think bananas are just marvellous!  They are already packed ready to go if you're on the run, they are perfect baby food and when they're old you can bake with them. O and they're cheap nutrition! :O)
  6. 27 Million song - LZ7 & Matt Redman are doing their best to raise awareness on human trafficking. Our world needs people like these doing all they can to make a difference.  I have downloaded a copy of this song from Amazon to show support and to help bring this song to the UK charts top 5. Would you show support for this cause?  help us reach the top 5!  It costs less than £1 to download. Click HERE to download from amazon.  You can also download from itunes but I cannot provide a link for that as I don't have itunes downloaded on my computer.
  7. Diary - I've kept various diaries over the years, but recently I started one where I write a brief summary of things, listed not even in proper sentences.  It is proving a blessing to look back at these 'notes' and see what I and the kids have been up to.  We forget so much don't we!!
  8. 30 minute head start - Today I had 30 minutes before Rosina woke up.  I managed to have some time reading the Bible and even shower before my mothering duties called for me.  
  9. Toaster - I'm sitting here crunching on some toast to satisfy those late night munchies!  I'm so thankful for the ease of cooking toast with a simple push of a lever.  
  10. Taste - have you ever wondered what it would be like to not be able to taste?  Can you imagine the bore and chore it would be to eat if we couldn't taste!?  And the sense of taste and smell are linked together so imagine not even being able to smell that gorgeous cup of coffee brewing away or that freshly baked loaf.  These are pleasures in life we take for granted.  Aren't we fearfully and wonderfully made!!  Thank you God for the gift of taste and smell.
