Blessings this Week: 07.17.2015

I count my blessings- to remind me to be grateful, to remind me of God's kindness and grace to me, and to help me get my attitude where it needs to be- in a state of awe and wonder at His goodness.

Sunsets over this beautiful lake of ours

Supper out with friends

Tipsy Houses and people-watching

Blue Goo ice cream cone. Tastes like summer and childhood.

Visiting Venezuelans and hanging out at the beach with my parents and sister

This honey-one who's birthday we celebrate this week (and will also celebrate this weekend)

A good chat on the deck of a friend's home

A ladies' night out on the lake (and the friends who filled these chairs with laughter and community- I was too busy chatting to take many pictures!)

In case you missed it- here's what's been going on around this blog---

We started off the week with a silly post-

5 Favorite Obscure Movies

(How many of these have you seen?)

and then we had our featured post for our In Season series: Finding the Fruit of the Spirit, Right Where We Are

In Season: Kindness

in which we learned about practical ways to extend kindness to those around us.

Coming Up: 

Next week: We'll be talking about Goodness in our In Season series, and I'll also be sharing a little about our journey with infertility thus far.

And Even Further Out: We've been hard at work making our new house a home, and I'm excited to share how that's coming along, as well as what God's teaching me along the way. Lots to be looking forward to!

Have a great week- count those blessings!

  1. I was just thinking this morning how much I miss ladies night out. Everyone has been so busy we haven't gotten together in forever.

    1. Oh, I get you, friend. This was the first ladies night out that I've had since... May? April? And let me tell you, I didn't know that I'd have time... but I'm so glad I made the time!

  2. Lots of beach time...awesome!

  3. That is awesome to share & rejoice in your blessings. We all truly have so much to be thankful for. Glad you had a forfilling week!
