The counting

today i continue to count blessings, and am humbled to be called His.

11. ever thankful for the grace that holds us together, like glue
12. knowing that grace for the first time in my spiritual walk as true
13. for finding my voice
14. and being left speechless (praise for the opportunity to have that HARD conversation with my mom)
15. for a husband who holds me tighter when my inclination is to push away
16. and time alone with sister
17. for praise and worship on the radio, constant reminder
18. and the stirrings of prayer inside that are new and freeing
19. for rereading words written 6 years ago as stones of remembrance from whence i came (and so far i've come!) as well as
20. wise words of counsel
22. especially from my Christina who has shared more wisdom that i still cling to than just about anyone i know
23. for learning to forgive myself and others
24. and seeing glimpses of the big picture
25. and most importantly for being reminded that He loves me, sustains me, and has brought morning from night, just as he promised.

Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever. ~2 Chron. 20:21b

holy experience

Hi Misty,
Thank you for your kind words. Don't worry about teen boys--if you stop by my place enough, I'll be brutally honest about all the things I did wrong. Maybe you can glean some wisdom from my mistakes! But seriously, remember that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, and our enemy is a defeated one. If I haven't already told you, I really like the name of your blog. It captures so much. blessings to you.

Rejoicing in forgiveness with you tonight!

Delighted to splash around with you today. This looks like a great place to slip off my shoes and wade in refreshing thankfulness.

Splashing,
Sara

That is a beautiful place to be. thankful for how far you have come... and for being able to forgive yourself. That is one of the hardest things to do (at least I think so). You are a beautiful daughter of the KING... HE loves you so very much... and HE dances and sings over you! I love to remind myself of that one! It's so incredibly freeing to know that the Lord of creation loves us that much.

God Bless,
christy
