One Thousand Gifts

holy experience

40. 25 almost 26 years with a man who loves me, cherishes me, protects me and always gives me a soft place to fall

41. A conversation with the youngest about creation, science, and faith

42. A friend not seen for a long time dropping by to say hello

43. A daughter, grown who has become a best friend

44. Hugs from one who is normally too reserved

45. A conversation with the prodigal about future worship, a realization that even though he is not in my arms yet he is really home

46. waking up to birds in the trees of my backyard

47. quiet mornings to sit at the feet of the Savior

48. coffee waiting ... left for me by my dearest

49. warm days here at last!!

50. a week of boys home from school

Your prodigal posts brought tears to my eyes....having endured such heartache must make you even more thankful for every good thing. What a gift to have a grown daughter as a best friend. It was a blessing to read of God's goodness to you.

#40 - You look not much older then 25/26, so I was shocked to see you've been married that long.
Praise Jesus for that devotion.
#48 - One of my favorites that takes place within these walls of our home also.
Thanks for sharing!

What a blessing a strong and faithful marriage is. I pray as my daughters continue to grow, we maintain a close relationship that will blossom into an adult friendship. You are blessed indeed.
