A Heart-Swell of Gratitude

*Apologies for the lateness of the post.  Computer/internet issues in play.  I'm using my husband's laptop and wireless modem.

Any complaint, any grumbling, any why-me-ing....seems unbelievably shallow and childish this week.  This blessed week of Easter.  This week, when I remember, oh my Lord, all that you have done for me....

216.  Love.  Unconditional.  Unlimited.  Unfathomable.  Unending.  Undeserved.

217.  Sacrifice.  Father, you gave your Son.  Son, you experienced what I never will....the turning away of the Father.

218.  Example.  How to live.  To love.  To die.  To hope.

219.  Peace.  Found at your feet.  In your Word.  In prayer.  In fellowship.

220.  Grace.  Over.  And over.  And over.

and the small things, too, I remember and count....

221.  Supper with parents.

222.  Green, green, green grass after winter's gray.

223.  Fuzzy-headed yellow dandelions.

224.  A book that makes me laugh.

225.  A new notebook, blank, empty, waiting to be filled.

Yay, finally. I was like where is Stacy, all day. Clearly I need to a client, job or to focus on writing that thing I am supposed to be writing! Hooray for a blank notebook, too! Praying gremlins leave your computer!

I also like the feeling of a new blank notebook. It feels like new creativity waiting to happen.

I feel appropriately chastised! :) beautiful post, Stacy! Healing prayers for the computer.

Maggie Ann said...

Beautifully put and oh so true.

Stacy said...

Dawn...Still using the hubby's laptop. May have to get Comcast to pay a visit. :( I am ready to link up when you post.

Simone...I know! The only comparable thing is a new box of crayons. LOL

Beth...Wasn't chastising anyone but myself.

Maggie Ann...Welcome and thank you!

Just beautiful... and I am glad you were able to post :)
