One Thousand Gifts - 4



We are on Spring Break this week. The girls are enjoying a week with their grandparents and Chad and I are home preparing for Friday's move.

Our house is quiet. So I sort, wrap and place our belongings into boxes in quiet. It's a process I do not like. But at the same time I love that this process makes me purge and toss out the clutter. It is somewhat refreshing.

This week my heart is full and grateful for so many things.

53. Rain
54. Emma. (Who turned 10 on Saturday!)
55. The family that spent the weekend celebrating Emma with us.
56. A little over 100 children I was privileged to direct last night in our Spring Musical. ("Happily Forever After") They make my heart so happy.
57. Chloe's text messages to me.
58. Simple dinners with Chad.
59. Toile
60. The things God is teaching me during the moving process.

Thank you for stopping by today. You have been prayed for!

Blessings,
stephanie

Happy Belated Birthday to Miss Emma!!

Happy packing! I've always said taht everyone should move every 5 or 10 years. It forces one to clean out the junk.

Love ya,

I’m here from Ann’s, I know it’s Friday – but there are a whole bunch of thank you counters.

From your thank you’s I especially liked: 59. Toile (because before I began blogging in this community I didn’t even know what this was – no I know too much [my man card is in jeopardy]) (◠‿◠) I enjoyed this.
Thank you.

Oh, and "spiritual lessons from packing": sounds like great blog fodder :)

God Bless and keep you and your family
