Gratitude Journal…Everyday Beautiful!

Deuteronomy 10:21 He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

Celebrating the Everyday Beautiful…it’s been far too long since I posted a gratitude post. These pictures are from the last month, bits of beauty hidden in the minutes and hours of life, waiting to be found and cherished. These moments, these small frames of beauty…what blessings! What a difference remembering to appreciate them makes!

176. Thank you, Lord for small bits of color in Winter’s gray 177. For a warm breakfast of oats, nuts, cranberries and coconut, cooled with cream 178. For waking up to frosted trees179. For a beautiful bag handmade by a dear friend180. For the studies inside the bag, and the wisdom therein181. For the people who join us in these learning journeys, and their spirited conversation

182. For coins of light, glinting off wet cement in a moment of yellow sun183. For hot garbanzos, steaming in the kitchen sink (and hummus, later)184. For quiet moments in the Winter light
185. For games of strategy played with siblings186. For quiet naps on the couch187. For the cross found in a sliced tomato, and for the boy who noticed it188. For a daughter’s pensive moment, watching sun sparks on white snow189. For hubby’s smile after shoveling the driveway…yet another time190. For order out of chaos!

  1. Absolutely beautiful photos. I think the nap picture is my favorite. I cannot begin to tell you how precious that picture will be to you someday. On the night before my oldest girl left for college, she fell asleep just like that on our sofa, and when I looked at her, I was distraught with the passing of her childhood. However, there is an up note to this: sometimes when she’s home now, she’s so comfortable that she falls asleep again in that same spot. So it wasn’t the last time I’d ever see that sight again, but Oh, it felt like it in the moment. Can children be any more precious than when they’re sleeping peacefully?

  2. Just beautiful. I love this idea. Count your blessings name them one by one… :-DGod is doing great things even in the tiniest of moments, thank you.

  3. This is beautiful! What a wonderful way to express gratitude. My favorite is the cross in the tomato. It takes a child to remind us God is everywhere. Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures and prose. Makes the cold of winter warmer. 🙂

  4. Love your weekly photos!! They and their subjects are beautiful. I too especially loved the tomato photo – truly God is wanting us to find Him in the daily rituals of our lives.
