Gratitude Gifts Today

"But when the Spirit of the living God lives inside of you, then your living is also your worship. Everything that is is because he is I Am. ”For in Him we live and move and exist.” (Acts 17:28) We are able to worship in all that we do. And anything worth doing will also be worship. What else would it be?"
(from Emily @ Chatting At The Sky)

I love those words!  Together with our pastor's question "What are you going to do with all that God gives you this week?" I am looking forward to a week of living in His grace and counting the little gifts I notice for all gifts are from Him!

#3152 - #3177

- golden leaves on trees
- bright orange Hubbards squash on the counter
- pale green shreds of cabbage fermenting
- a beautiful Morden Yellow tomato from the greenhouse
- brilliant orange marigolds lingering on in the garden

- traditional methods of making things like sauerkraut
- a birthday invitation in the mail
- turkey roasting in the oven
- simple harvest meals
- sitting long around the kitchen table

- looking at pictures we took in Europe again
- hearing about the grand adventures friends had
- cutting fabric to sew a nightgown
- finding just the right birthday gift
- staying under the budget

- stacking potato sacks in a safe, dark place
- water soaking in around the apple trees
- a counter full of baking
- pulling the last beets from the garden
- beautiful blue sky

- eating frozen blueberries
- hearing that Melinda and Samuel are on their way after missing a flight
- musical reminders of how much God loves and cares for me
- studying scripture
- looking for opportunities in everything He sends my way
