1000 Gifts: Mondays

How is it that I'm not in the work force anymore, yet Monday is still my least favorite day of the week?  Monday means my extra set of hands that my husband provides with the boys during the day are back to work.  I guess it is then so appropriate to be extra thankful on Mondays - to bring praise and glory to Jesus which turns my focus off of me and on to the only ONE who is WORTHY to receive it.

In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"
Revelation 5:12 

0299.  waking up to a glorious morning of quiet

0300.  quickening

0301.  making the choice to trust
0302.  warm air

0303.  a much needed embrace

0304.  gearing up for Vacation Bible School

0305.  chicken in a crock pot to provide meals for the family

0306.  freedom

0307.  loose teeth

0308.  the dim glow of a hallway light while checking on my blessings before bed

0309.  a comfy pillow and much needed rest

0310.  a clean kitchen

0311. a handsome young man in a tie on Sunday morning becoming more grown up all the time

0312.  the generosity of a friend - replacing a broken printer

For these and many other things I praise the LORD.

Yes, I am sort of sad when my husband goes to start his work week on Monday. I do enjoy him during the weekend.
Yummy dinner!

haha - loose teeth, that rocks! I know from my 7yr old's excitement over his front 2 being "wiggly".
