Multitude Monday: Still Counting

In a season of transition, 
I know the response of my flesh is panic, clinging to what is familiar with my fingernails. 
 I get angry
 and lash out
 and feel the tears rising--
which is why this response shouldn't surprise me in my teen.  
It came to me yesterday in a moment of conflict that I need this infusion of gratitude
 because I need to model something different 
than what I have taught in my weakness. 
 I  want my children to respond in thanks to the myriad of graces.
  So must I.
51. Saturday sunrises
52. a true cold snap
53. air in my lungs as I walk
54. frost
55. sapphire sky
56. orange leaves and light reflected on water
57. a good word from the Word
58. our house
59. early oranges
60. gluten-free pumpkin-chocolate-chip muffins that make me happy
61. a whole Saturday at home
62. a productive day at home
63. boots
64. a mustard yellow scarf
65. going to work
66. a good, free, online commentary of the Bible
67. knowing He fills my hunger 


  1. Seasons of change are never easy. Praying God will make Himself very evident in this one for you.

  2. I love your lists!!

    I need to starting counting again - I am almost to 1,000 - well I have surpassed that but I haven't actually written them down!
