Multitude Monday - 1000 Gifts

Quickly typing today's gratitude list - we've got visitors... keeping very busy... overwhelmed... and very thankful!

Tim showing Pam and Grandpa Gene the beginning foundation work on our new house - they should start laying bricks tomorrow, I think!

No rest for the jet-lagged... Tim put Larry to work right away. Pray with us that they will be able to accomplish all that is needed at the studio this week!

#828 visitors from our home church

#829 seeing Grandpa Gene holding his grandbabies on his lap

#830 listening to the kids holler for their grandfather to come see this or that

#831 seeing Tim introduce his dad at our English Evening fellowship as "my dad!" with a huge smile

#832 having to stop for photos - something we need to do more often

#833 brave boy mks

#834 silly girl wearing an ugly nightgown over her school clothes

#835 friends flexible enough to cover for my forgetfulness

#836 french crueller donuts - the recipe was not "exceptionally easy" as claimed, but definitely a thumbs up, try again... in a few months!

#837 Casa del Burrito - best Mexican food in Niamey!

#838 catching up with our Norwegian friends, who are also in town for a short visit

#839 raspberry chocolate torte - and a recipe that worked almost perfectly the first time I tried it

#842 hand carried birthday gifts waiting to be shared

#843 help around the house this week which will allow me to better prepare for ladies' Bible study this weekend

#845 strange fevers that hang on for 24 hours and then go away, without becoming anything more serious - one "side" -benefit? They force me to slow down and rest for a bit as I snuggle a sick baby.

#846 patient and gracious African friends - when we forget to follow through on one of our committments

#847 looking forward to chatting with my mom after missing the past few weeks

#848 doing something special for those I love and seeing their thankful smiles - even when they forget to whisper the words

#849 super-scrubbed sparkly clean kitchen floor, thanks to my 2 big girls

#850 my niece - officially approved to come to Niger as a short term misso next year... let us know if you'd be interested in contributing to her support for the trip.


  1. I’m here from Ann’s today – I know it’s Tuesday – reading lots of lists takes some time :)

    Of your “thank you’s” this week my favorite was: #849 super-scrubbed sparkly clean kitchen floor, thanks to my 2 big girls (helping hands – friends, neighbors, family, all so important – as iswhat you do where you are – I’m inspired)

    And it looks like an archaeological dig going in the picture – I guess a foundation for a house is even better !!

    Thank you for this – it all just made me smile – and smiles are important.

    God Bless you and all of yours

  2. I don't know how I missed this post! What a list of blessings you have! Praising God with you!


Stop in for a chat! I love to hear what you have to say ~
