1000 Gifts: Mercies new every morning

The LORD'S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
         For His compassions never fail.
    They are new every morning;
         Great is Your faithfulness.
    "The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
         "Therefore I have hope in Him."
    The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
         To the person who seeks Him.

Lamentations 3:22-25

363.  a hard pouring rain as we leave church - reminding me of the precious washing away of my sin

364.  a son taking punishment for his brother - willingly - God's demonstration to us of what Jesus has done.
365.  anticipation of seeing life and discovering how God has chosen to bless us 

366.  a fishing trip with dad - a morning of fun with friends - just a boy and his dad

367.  a walk to get a donut - a mom and boy - spending time together - one-on-one

368.  purchasing a pool membership - our "vacation" for the summer - and all of the fun it brings
369.  an opportunity to go to a convention with a friend - after previously thinking I wasn't going.

370.  laundry folded
371.  Sunday afternoon naps

372.  bills paid
373.  trips to the library for new books 

374.  God's constant provisions
Great is Thy faithfulness
Oh God, My Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
All I have needed Thy hand hast provided.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

I join you in gratitude for time spent with eating a do nut, too!
A Sunday afternoon nap and trips to the library.
Enjoyed your blog.

Oh, those daddy/son moments are simply the best! We're so blessed to have hubbies who see the value in such outings... shaping godly men-- what a gift they give their boys!

Hope you're feeling well today... hope the boys are all well, too... hope you're having a super week thus far!! Can you believe it's almost June?? My oh my... missing you... as always!
