One Thousand Gifts (part 18)

As the seasons shift from golden autumn to pale winter, the beauty of the Lord is ever-present in both bold and subtle ways. And so I continue to the count many blessings from God above, making my way to 1000:




412. Nature crowns!







413 -419. Date night: delicious dinner, sleeping in, feeling like newlyweds, talking without interruption, going to church together--able to actually pay attention!


420. nighttime snuggle under blankets watching October snow fall with 6 year old son


421. reading Halloween stories to excited little boys


422. joy of painting


423-427. moms night out: glitter pumpkins (fun!), mulled cider, yummy treats, lots of laughs



428. homemade kettle corn


429. pinkish first morning light against rare October snow-so still and peaceful


430. warm house with electricity while many Connecticut residents go without power--ability to offer house to others in need


431. thick crusty morning frost on grass


432. husband's new job! Such a blessing!


433. warm toasted pumpkin seeds




434. jack-o-lanterns all aglow




435. The last golden colors of Fall set on fire by afternoon sun




436. October snow on holly




437. popcorn, hot cocoa and movies with cousins



...more to come
