Multitude Monday ~ 1000 Gifts: Thankfulness and Trust

"...We have a strong city;
He sets up the walls and ramparts for security.
Open the gates,
that the righteous nation may enter,
The one that remains faithful.
The steadfast of mind
You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust int he LORD forever,
For in God the LORD we have an everlasting rock..."
Isaiah 26:1b-4 (NASB)

In a heart where thankfulness is chosen,
trust thrives.
Thankfulness and trust travel together, hand in hand ~


meeting with both joy and sorrow,
relief and suffering,
ease and hardship,
courage and fear,
delight and irritation...
but regardless...

perfect peace reigns!

this week's gratitude list
(#s 1201 - 1223)

the end in sight

finished finals

all day Friday at the pool

watching the kids' faces as they received their awards

the thrill of victory

the fun of congratulating a friend's great performance

competitive water polo games

daring dives off the platform

the satisfaction that comes with pushing yourself to a new height... trying something that is new and scary and finding it fun

friends who pitch in and serve... taking photos, tying plastic bags filled with Koolaid or cookies, bringing peanut butter covered crackers for a much needed snack...

new friends

oversleeping... and finally starting to feel rested again

looking forward to literacy

ladies who want to learn to read their Bibles

metal trusses and looking forward to seeing work on the roof start

shared chwarmas and conversation in the AC

getting ready to move

packing and finding things that we thought we'd lost

songs about swimming and summer time hanging out at the pool

looking forward to free afternoons and time to take my kiddos to the pool

anticipating visitors... and being able to actually see target arrival days on the calendar without flipping too many pages

yearbooks, sparking wonderful memories, for sale... now!
