Multitude Monday

"The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving."
Psalm 28:7 (NLT)

- for the gentle heart that opens this quiet place where we can come and share what the Lord has done in and for us

- for cold, raw days with skies like slate because...

- they open my eyes to the joy of a shaft of sunlight across the kitchen table, my nose to the scent of coffee brewing, and my heart to the warmth and comfort of my home

- a promotion for my son

- answered prayer - it takes me by surprise - not because He isn't able, but rather because I am so undeserving of such love

- a brother slowly making his way back to faith

- a note in the mailbox from a darling granddaughter

- the way worship music cuts across every line and draws us closer to one another and to Jesus

- a new Bible Study - Proverbs 31 in the Light of Jesus - "Because of Jesus" by Connie Witter
"Realize you're already a virtuous woman in Christ"
As always - it is exactly what I need

- the unmatched creativity of the Father

- celebrating my Dad's 90th birthday

For these things and so much more, thank You Father. You fill my life with the joy and peace that can only come from knowing You.

Please visit Ann's and the others who are sharing their thanks.

  2. Your dad looks absolutely wonderful and doesn't look 90 at all...a very Happy Birthday to him:-) You have so many wonderful things to be thankful for, dear Linda. It never ceases to fill me with warmth and love anytime I come visit you, my friend. xoxo

  4. Wow! Linda. Your dad is extremely handsome. He must have been a real knockout. And he looks contented and happy.

    Notes from granddaughters--what a lovely blessing.


  5. Happy Birthday to your dad! What a blessing!

  6. Isn't a handwritten note an especially special treat in this day and age?? It just tickles me to pieces when someone actually takes the time to WRITE a letter... and then to receive one from someone so special-- what a wonderful treat, Linda... truly a heaven-sent gift!!

    Have a glorious day, Linda-- and happy birthday to your daddy! Another extraordinary gift!

  7. So many special blessings, Linda. Glad you have a granddaughter who is learning the treasure of sending love notes in the mail. And your dad looks great! Ninety years old--how fantastic. God bless him.

  8. Happy Birthday to your day, Linda.

    Ah, yes, blessings for the undeserving soul - I had many today...Especially His peace and comfort.

    Love & peace,
