July Gifts {Day I’m-behind-and-that’s-okay}

Fallen a bit behind on the gifts posting. That’s okay. There are still gifts being realized and received even if they’re not recorded. Grace is enough gift for today and the days I missed.

July Gifts {Day Ten}

Three Gifts in Weakness Again, looked at this first thing in the morning so that I could be on the hunt for weakness.  Thought about several things… when Rachel broke her arm a few years ago and how the bone was ultimately… Read More

July Gifts {Day Nine}

Did you notice that I didn’t really do a “gift” day yesterday?  True story.  And, that’s okay.  Three gifts of water seems easy, but when you live in Texas, and it’s July, the only thing I could think of was the pool…. Read More

July Gifts {Day 3}

A gift in FAMILY, FAITH, FREEDOM.  Just one?  Ugh.  Too many that I love.  🙂 It’s hard to catch this boy being still… but I love this picture from a family worship time.  Pajamas, loud praise music, laughter, dancing.  All in the presence… Read More

July Gifts {Day Two}

This morning has been a Romans 8:26-27 morning for me. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words… Read More

good gifts

Ever read The Five Love Languages? Years ago, when Matt and I were engaged, I read this book.  And, it made total sense.  All people show and receive love in different ways.  Some people love it when their main squeeze holds their… Read More
