A Cup Overflowing, 701-720

Graham Cooke tweeted this several weeks ago: "There is more kindness of God over our lives than we'll ever be able to use.  We are swimming in His love for us."  Yep...

#701  Mother's Day pampering

#702  my Mom and her prayers for our family

#703  that Jesus is the Way -- unqualified: the Way to think, act, feel, be - in every conceivable circumstance and relationship

#704  that leap that happens in my stomach when I open the Word

#705  for deeper truths learned

#706  late night texting with Traci and Julia Nell ... and the joy those amigos bring to my life

#707  Morning prayer: "Holy Spirit" by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend -- this piece demands my full attention.  HOLY OF HOLIES!

#708  34 years of marriage -- even he will tell you it has been the best 5 years of his life 

#709  the joy of seeing a little boy learning to count by twos -- his toes

#710  the fact that God writes Himself into all that's around me so that I might see Him

#711  for the people God puts in the lives of my children -- and the way they are encouraged and loved through them: Thank you, Keith, Jo, and Connie

#712  a relaxing evening spent with 2 special people

#713  the satisfaction and pleasure that comes with pulling weeds

#714  a baby shower and a room full of joyously chattering women 

#715  a milestones in a young man's life and knowing God has purpose for him -- celebrating Matthew Long

#716  for the coolness of a late May morning

#717  a leisurely evening spent with girl friends -- chicken enchiladas and back porch sipping

#718  a stolen lunch period with companions of the way -- and celebrating Retha (our first Bible teacher)

#719  A word: "Stargazer"

#720  3 finches lining a branch outside my window

Stroke .... stroke .... stroke ....
