I've Made Up My Mind

Well, I've finally done it--made up my mind that is!

There is nothing on God's green earth that moves me like the dogwood tree.

It's beauty and grace are unmatched--in my humble opinion.

Give me a camera and a few blooms and my day is made!

Thanking God for all of his many blessings this past week--
among them this beautiful tree growing in my front side yard.

Their beauty is breathtaking to me--

Exquisite--as much as I love that word, it is not good enough......

Thank you, God for all the blessings--

Really too numerous to count--

The week at Mountain View with the guys from Renewal Ranch--

Ronnie fixing our car while there--

The six men who came to chapel on Saturday wanting to have their lives restored through
Jesus Christ

The incredible service we had--

The voices of Dean, Chance and Ed as they blended together in perfect harmony--

The fun, food, laughter and fellowship--

That Abel returned from his grandfather's funeral in Texas

That Atlas came home--

That Kim gave her testimony Sunday night--a year clean--how awesome!

I love the dogwood trees too. When we lived in Washington the park there was full of them, many streets lined with them. It was quite beautiful.
I love keeping a gratitude journal, have for many years. I can't imagine starting or ending a day without giving thanks for all the SHINY moments the Lord filled the day up with. Take care, my friend. Love you much.

The dogwood was always my mother's favorite. I love it, too, and although we don't have one in our yard our next door neighbor has a beautiful pink one that I am enjoying even now as I type this. I love all that it represents. Yours is beautiful, as is your thankful heart.
Love you~
