We get up
We go through the routine of getting ready to send my window cleaning husband out for the day
Rags are folded and by the door
While this routine is now familiar, it still feels strange.
So different from what we once did
What we thought we’d do for life
Here we are now in this season
We have peace that for now this is where we stay
This is where we work, live and play
And there are days when we really don’t want to do this
What has come of it?
Incredible blessings – without a doubt.
Along with the uncomfortable, the sometimes painful, the weird…
There is joy
Our Father, He gives gifts – always
I don’t always see them, yet they are there
And so I count:
#1087 – Family who is there for us
#1088 – Kids growing and learning lessons not learned any other way
#1089 – Peace and freedom found in following God’s voice
#1090 – Cardinals singing to each other in the back yard
#1091 – Pink streaks in the sky as the sun comes up
#1092 – Food to eat
#1093 – Plateful of cherry tomatoes, green and red
#1094 – 4 kids sleeping in their beds
#1095 – Meeting new people
“…and it’s counting the ways He loves, this is what multiplies joy.
The life that counts blessings discovers its yielding more than it seems.” ~Ann Voskamp
