A Cup Overflowing, 861-880

Contrary to what it may appear from the lack of postings, I have in no way fallen off the gift-counting bandwagon.  In fact, not only did I hit #1000 in mid December, last week I passed the 1,100 mark. But I do want to be faithful to my posting of them, and thus I continue...

#861  homemade strawberry cream pie

#862  fresh pears picked from a tree my grandfather planted decades (if not a century) ago

#863  fig season ... complete with beautiful beetles

#864  summer's last attempt at green

#865  rays of hope in difficult seasons

#866  a "light" rain

#867  generations

#868  that during hard seasons, God's grace is enough and His power is fulfilled -- 2 Cor. 12:9

#869  for the consolation God brings through nature's waking -- the morning's sun, the bird's song, the cicada's humming, the squirrel's play, the tree's green

#870  a reuniting after a season apart

#871  a small sparrow braving breakfast in the rain

#872  a glistening web

#873  random outdoor church service under the shade of an oak

#874  living in a small town

#875  experiencing much needed Sunday community while standing in line for lunch

#876  morning light high in the pines

#877  that I said "yes" 35 years ago

#878  hearing "G-Nan!" again after such a long span of not

#879  rainbows -- does anyone ever tire of such?

#880  a break in the storm -- and light shining forth

Just ordinary moments .... all worth counting.
