There are not enough numbers, but still, I attempt to count...
#381 my Christmas cactus's virgin bloom
#382 not too busy to sit -- in this season, what a gift!
#383 for the mercy of God in a friend's son's life -- that the glory of the Lord might be revealed
#384 a Sunday morning cardinal that reminds me to choose joy today
#385 sitting with my husband and parents in morning worship
#386 that Joseph (Mary's husband) would allow his heart and mind to be shaped and changed -- even though he had made up his mind "to put her away privately" -- what integrity!
#387 morning peace
#388 how a young woman who lived over a hundred years ago can still speak volumes to my soul and challenge me to holy living
#389 testimonies from perfect strangers that can't be kept quiet
#390 Christmas hospitality given (again) through Di and Randy
#391 the deep love that is alive in my heart toward another
#392 sitting in the dark on a quiet Advent Sunday morning
#393 for a pastor whose heart is both tender and sensitive
#394 to hear for the first time the name of Jesus formed on and spoken through my grandson's lips -- Yes, when he ran into the den and saw my nativity, he pointed at the baby and said, "Sheshush!" Oh, God, may he always live to exalt Your Son's name!
#395 Christmas eve testimonies
#396 rocking and loving on this year's baby -- my great-niece Moriah, to be exact -- and realizing just how appropriate that is on Christmas eve
#397 being soaking wet after a playful bath time with a certain little fellow who found a great thrill in splashing his G-Nan
#398 early Christmas morning peace
#399 that Light came into the world -- and darkness cannot over come it
#400 for the Word made flesh
Just very thankful indeed...
