I love Tuesday mornings. There's nothing that gives me more perspective than to count my blessings. To focus on that for which I'm thankful pushes my ever-present tendency to complain from view. The clouds part. And the glorious wonderfulness of my life is revealed. I am truly blessed.
When I came downstairs this morning I noticed that the lettuce and spinach seeds we planted on Saturday night had begun sprouting.
After putting coffee on, I started a fire in our wood stove and it caught right away. More importantly, smoke didn't billow out and fill the house like it did yesterday morning -- a long story not worth telling or complaining about. :)
Our chicks are now five weeks old and thriving in the brooder my amazing husband built.
We had a dusting of snow last night. Nope, I'm not complaining about it because I love the way it looks outside when it snows!
My first Etsy sale to someone I don't know! These "boots" were a custom order by a sweet grandma for her grandson who will be born later this year!
My industrious and handsome 12 year old who loves to eat.
My artistic and beautiful 10 year old who loves to cook.
An incredibly tasty new soup we had for dinner last night. (Jess, I will be sharing the recipe soonish.)
A new recipe to try for Easter: Resurrection Rolls Yep, they're made with refrigerated crescent rolls and marshmallows, but sometimes you've got to compromise. Besides, the kids will love making these!
And above all, looking forward to celebrating Resurrection Day this Sunday!
And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
What are you thankful for today?
