Spirit Of Heaviness

"the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness... " (Isaiah 61:3)

Needing to find some things to be thankful for this morning...

733. the movement of treetops in the wind

734. everlasting life

735. decorating our Easter tree given to us by Molly's Sunday School teacher

736. Passion Week

737. watching Meg's bulb grow in the warm, bay window

738. Molly's excitement over her homemade mini-ecosystem

739. babysitting a niece today

740. how my sister joked about half-price pedicures when they mentioned amputation for her leg

741. how longing for heaven in the midst of trials actually puts into perspective the reason we're here

742. finally... flowers

743. the ballet moms

744. cancellations... right on time and part of His plan

745. eating "clean" again and the start of each day--a new beginning after failure

746. how deep the Father's love for me--repeating it over and over today

Praying for you and your sister...

I found #741 so compelling. When God enables me to have that perspective it really helps change my perspective on trials and hardships in this life.

(btw, if you all EVER make it down to the southwest US, we'd love to have you stay with us for a few days!!! We'll give you the grand tour of our desert home! :))

740- "How my sister joked about half-priced pedicure when they mentioned amputation for her leg."

For the time i've know her, Auntie Hilary's always been very wise and takes hard things in a way we don't expect, and she doesn't really take the yucky things in life seriously. She knows that being a worry-wort all the time won't get you anywhere.

Good night!

Bliss and Bless,
