Here are more blessings I am adding to my gratitude list:

13. Zachary with silly putty stuck in his pocket (only Zach!).

14. Children playing—just playing and laughing with no hidden agenda.

15. A hug from Rachel and an enthusiastic “mama” when I get home late.

16. An “I love you” from Joseph—every night.

17. The smile of the moon in the early a.m.

18. Lunch in a quaint coffee shop with my husband.

19. Precious reminders of grandparents already Home.

20. Moms and Dads.

Keep noticing the little as well as the big!

By His Grace,

      Thanks for the welcome, Dena! There are endless reasons for gratitude if we can just clear away the fog. Being on The High Calling network will be one of them I’m sure. It will be exciting to meet like-minded bloggers.

Hello, I'm Julie, an imperfect wife and mother of four. Life in this broken world is not always easy. Yet, joy can be found in each day through the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I find it's easy for our day's blessings to get lost in its happenings. But God's "mercies never end" (Lamentations 3:22) and His "grace is sufficient" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

May the posts and pages on this site offer you a measure of peace and encouragement.
