Tender Mercies

The days pass and the joys mount higher ~
reflection is often necessary to really appreciate today.
Oh that I would slow down long enough to drink it all in!

"The LORD is good to all:
and his tender mercies are over all his works."
Psalm 145:9

Continuing to number my days and His tender mercies ~
grace upon grace...

436. Endless supply of flowers for my little vase ~
lovingly picked just for me!



437. Little helper ~ eager to be of use!
Remember that my dishwasher is broken? :)



438. Soap bubbles...



439. School project ~ a tiny glimpse into the
sheer magnitude of our Great God's marvelous Creation



440. Neighbours willing to fill in on the paper route
and collect mail while we were away

441. Safe return of my Mom from Egypt

442. Imaginations of a child

443. Chocolate Molten Cakes

444. Bald eagles soaring overhead ~ three of them!

445. Little girl who keeps up as I "power walk"

446. Reading about our niece's adventures in AFRICA!

447. Ability to pray for loved ones far away

448. Our hearing and answering Heavenly Father

449. Fresh spring breezes filling the house

450. The gate slamming shut ~ boys live here

451. Empty fridge ~ boys live here

452. Full fridge ~ boys live here and God provides!

453. The "shhh" of little (and not so little)
boys in a bunk bed waiting for Mum to say goodnight

454. Little girl reading "The Bobbsey Twins" in bed
as she waits for Mummy to tuck her in

455. Oldest son who quietly goes to bed and still allows Mum
to kiss him goodnight

Many Blessings,
Camille

Camille,
I started mine!!! In my prayer journal, but then it hit me, I should put it in the journal my sweet husband bought me while we were in Italy...the journal I can't seem to bring myself to use because it's so beautiful and I love it so much! Anyway - thank you for living out your example. I love you and appreciate you!!!

PS LOVE the pics of Emma at the sink!

Little things we take for granted but when counted, they seem sooo priceless... things we'll miss when they're grown.
