Multitude Monday



"For the Mighty One is holy,
and He has done great things for me.
He shows mercy from generation to generation
to all who fear Him."
Luke 1: 49-50


Giving thanks today for:

- the opportunity to serve through music this weekend; our Christmas Program at church was such a blessing

- our annual Christmas Bingo party; time spent with precious friends - great food, lots of talk and laughter, praying together

- Dad's "4 star" report from his dialysis doctor - her very best patient. How we thank you Father.

- the hope, joy and love that permeate this season

- the house all dressed up for the birthday of all birthdays

- houses twinkling with beautiful Christmas lights

- memories of Christmas past

- Christmas music

- a husband who willingly does the grocery shopping for my Mom and Dad while we girls baked cookies

- the gift

I am thankful for all of you - for the beautiful, encouraging, uplifting posts you've been writing. How you bless. You add so much to this Advent season.

Blessings,
Linda

I have been feeling that I need to spend less time on-line over the next few weeks. There is that tugging on my heart - urging me to slow down and savor these days. I will still write a bit (because I just need to), but please forgive me if I don't visit and leave comments for just a little while.
