No Vacation From Gratitude

I think I could have come up with my one thousand gifts just in this past week alone. Here are some highlights.

106. The quiet hours of the morning. Time with Jesus.

107. From the rising to the setting sun, His love endures forever.

Delight mingled with terror as small ones watch the crash of ocean waves from the safety of Daddy’s arms.

The deep sleep that accompanies a fruitful day.

Playing in the “big sand box.”

The Lord inhabits my praises.

Naps on the beach drenched in sunny warmth.

Red-checked swimsuits with DAISIES!

God’s hand brings us safely through.

New phrases lisping from sweet Audrey.

Cousins!

Grace abounds over my sharp tongue and irritable side effects.

Full moons. Glowing orbs over calm, dark seas.

Heavy sighs as red curls tuck under Daddy’s chin in peaceful slumber.

He is the Beautiful One!

Snuggling with Bri on dark balconies seeing only the white caps of breakers hitting the shore. Surrounded by ocean breezes.

“This has been the best day of my life ever!”

Micah-land.

My Pap. Bible in hand.

Building sand castles. Dreaming of knights and dragons and somehow volcanoes and lava got in there, too.

Boogie boards in hand…but not in water.

Long walks on the boardwalk. The bustle of crowds and smell of fries. Huge eyes taking it all in.

Brothers.

Grandaddy’s hands.

That smile.
