Counting 1000 Blessings - March 2013


1        181 more little rosettes and bows for baby socks! 

          182 making birthday card for my sister
          183 awesome BK toy and 25cent coffee. Plus she upsized my coffee for free! Doesn't get much better than this

2        184 this is happening. 

          185 avocado!!!
          186 #starbucks with my love. Snaps for giftcards & #vanillaspicelatte  

3        187 this boy growing up too fast, wearing my favorite lil jean jacket 

          188 felt very pulled together the day I wore this 

          189 baby booties!
4        190 a hard relationship I'm in
          191 my husband not being able to find a job that pays enough for him to quit his 2nd & 3rd jobs
          192 best friend living very far away

5        193  me & my buddy both found time in our schedules to do a long distance Bible study together

          194 found pomegranate and avocado on sale!

          195 ok. I really wanted to have something more profound for my 3rd "something found" but was *too excited* when I found these socks! They were folded and everything but got mixed up in a basket with husband-clothes. I knew I had more socks! (Clearly though, if there were this many missing, and more than that in my drawer, I have too many socks...)
6        196 my clever husband made me some bookends for the kitchen cookbooks. How cute of him to think of this all by himself-and they match the rest of the decor!

          197  the lock finally gave out. Sweet in-laws surprised us by fixing it for us. I really really love my in-laws!

          198 why hello, little bird.
7        199 stuff borrowed for my sister's baby shower 1: chairs
          200 2: red wagon for décor
          201 3: drink dispensers

8        202 vacuuming the whole house for my sisters shower. I’ve gotta have people over more often so the house gets cleaned.
          203 Fresh ground coffee!

          204 my hot pink shirt. Hot pink makes me happy!

9        205 last supper carving
          206 birds my sister woodburned
          207 and monkey spoon
10      208 Washed.
          209 Sanctified.
          210 Justified. In His precious name! I Cor 6:11

11      211 Beth Moore #Danielstudy
          212 Bible study with my bestie
          213 and super excited about my new #borntodeliver book I got today!

12      214 Breakfast
          215 my son sleeping so precious.

          216 God is so faithful. So faithful. He told me to paint again today, and this snow scene is what He came up with. Then He told me to open my Bible for His words to put on it. I had a verse in mind that would go pretty well, and figured He would lead me to it, but He led me to this one instead, and Lord Jesus, how You know your Word so intimately, and know Your creatures even more so. Ps 104:3 "He walks on the wings of the wind." Bless His name! I had no earthly idea what I was gonna do for my "wind" gift.

13      217 Binky handle

          218 my coffee cup. Can't put this book down! Born To Deliver

          219 quarters I found in my pocket 
14      220 study buddies this morning. #Danielstudy

          221 love how he sleeps. And that fuzzy hair!

          222 getting stuff done while baby sleeps

15      223 the cool print I got from a giveaway Rich In Blessings held! Finally motivated me to hang the shelf and red tile I've had for two or three years. Still need to add some greenery but the hard part is done!!

          224 flower that someone gave my honey after the play he directed last night.

          225 I guess we are those parents- the ones who give their child weird stuff to play with in the store.

16      226 1) tired most the time
          227 2) dishes stacked up after company
          228 3) laundry never ends... BUT! Thank God for the BUT. But this means my life is full of people I love.

17      229 pages turned in my new book #borntodeliver. I never ever read a book this fast. Its been less than a week and I'm already over half way through. I'm loving this honest story of Kathy Brace's journey to redemption
          230 this lovely quilt Ivan plays on
          231  I keep every flower my husband gives me. I'm such a sap I can't let go of a single one

18      232 Ivan's pandora station played his favorite This little light of mine and brought a smile amidst the teething woes.
          233 Incredibly thankful for these frozen teething keys right now!

          234 Ivan loves the Mr. Putter books!

25      253 God telling me to paint again. I love the sweet surrender.

          254 The children cried “Hosanna" (which means save us!)... God has prepared praise from the mouths of children and infants MT 21:15-16
          255 finished #borntodeliver today. I did not want it to end. "Thank You that your mercy never fails. In Your matchless grace, You have given none a life full of rich, though undeserved, blessings." -Kathy Brace
26      256 the palm Sunday snow is almost melted

          257 my coffee accompanying my Skype Bible study

          258 this bread. And I can't help but think of the Last Supper this #holyweek

27      259 me!! 1 Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
          260 these shelves made by wood saved from the garbage got their 1st coat of paint today. Soon they will be front-facing bookshelves for my baby's growing collection of books!
          261 coupon for free 8x10 at Walgreens! Love me some free pictures!

28      262 he's comfy wrapped around my leg and making funny words
          263 the oregano is back! I don't know why with any perennial plants I never believe it till I see it
          264 this blanket from my grandma. Not too many more days we'll get to snuggle under a blanket to read. The weather is getting warmer!

29      265 2Pet1:3 He has given us all we need for life and to become like Him
          266 Heb10:14 He sanctified us
          267 Jn19 Pain He suffered that Scripture would be fulfilled the right way. He didn't cut corners and did it all because He loves us.
