Sunday Sunshine

sunflowerPracticing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.

HandyMan has been off work this week and we have filled up week one of ourstaycation.  The weather has been beautiful! I have taken time to work on a number of projects in my garden, in my candle shop and in the kitchen.  We have been blessed by the help of friends as we both work on our respective projects.

At this point in our two week respite, HandyMan's project is well underway thanks to the help of a friendly neighbor visiting across the road.  A framer by trade, the neighbor helped HandyMan get all four walls framed out in one afternoon.  This skilled tradesman could breath the measurements, flick a pencil and everything was marked out in a matter of seconds - work that would have taken us much longer!  Such a surprise and a HUGE blessing!

We were able to spend a relaxed evening with friends and visit over dinner and watch kids play in the cool evening.  It was very nice.

Today is a wonderfully rainy day. One of the first we've had in a long while.  It is good for the farms, for our garden and for a nap!

I hope you can look back, and forward, to find the joy dotting your story!

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 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
