I am enjoying the pause from everyday activities that the weather brought our way.
Today, I am singing my gratitude; you may not hear the songs, but they are truly springing up inside.
I am thankful for: (112 -120)
sounds of snowplows and their drivers clearing the roads;
smiling neighbor boy who helped me clear the one last bit of snow from the drive;
calls from Mom to see if we are okay; calls to mothers to check on them;
scarves, hats, and more scarves made from Mama's hands as she "twists the yarn";
extended time together - playing, discussing, dreaming, serving;
Lord's new mercies everyday and faithfulness always;
chatting with sisters from birth and from the heart;
friends who graciously supply butterflies for the windowsills...
"Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation."
