One Thousand Gifts 7.25.11

138. I just looked at my calendar for last week to make sure I didn’t miss anything.  It was quite full last week, and I would like to first of all express my gratitude that I was able to meet my heavy load of commitments without losing it.  Not a joke.  Thank you, Lord.
139. a houseful of men praying
140. quiet prayer times with my journal
141. the Word — living, active, sharper than any two-edged sword
142. renewed commitment to staying accountable, striving towards self-control and discipline
143. a great week at camp for the boys — Ben went down the zipline even though he was terrified
144. Cameron’s steady progress in piano, and a wonderful teacher who is worth the drive
145. Cam’s striving to understand the sermon better. On his own. Without me pushing him.  (when will I learn to just calm down and stop freaking out about things?!)
146. Air conditioning in the ugly-hot days of July
147. a new trampoline
148. our pumpkin is turning orange
149. enough basil for bi-weekly pesto
150. time playing with little Haddon…he is so sweet 🙂
151. watching Maddie go out of her way to get a laugh out of Ella…it doesn’t take much
152. the gift of time…right on time, never late, and learning to trust God to provide it

    I love your last one.Perfect timing."He will not be tied to a place, to a time, or to an instrument, which were to limit Him, and then He would not be infinite. ""Expand your thinking to understand that there is that which exceeds; it is an infinite fullness. He blesses us abundantly, above all that we can ask or imagine ( Eph. 3:20) God can give us more that we can ask , nay , or imagine , because He is infinite. "Thomas Watson, 1620 – 1686
