Practicing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.
It seems that as the weather gets nicer, the weeks fly by even faster! Today I am particularly thankful for Sunday Afternoon Naps (although it seemed wrong since it is so nice out) but we will have family work time in the backyard when GBaby wakes up. It has been great to be able to hang the laundry outside this week and get my peas planted. Amidst these chores, I have introduced GBaby to dirt, and grass and leaves as she has been toddling around in the back yard.
Thursday was a day for errands in town and GBaby and I had a burger & fries date at the park while HandyMan was at a lunch meeting. It was so fun to watch her thrilled with the swings but so enamored with her burger that she couldn't give up one for the other. And it was a beautiful day to boot!
We continue to sift through our home and experience the joy of giving as our Lenten disciplines continue. I also received a gift of fresh eggs from a neighbor who has chickens this week which was a great blessing!
GBaby is waking up and a sunny afternoon is calling us outside -
Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
