#2096 & #2098--I'm right there with you! I'm a BSF girl too!

Craig said...

Amber – so I get to read you second today – have I told you lately I love all this blue and how you’ve lain everything out here – beautiful.

You’re my second list I get to read today – yay.

And it was a blessing, like always. And Amen – All’s Grace. Without that there would be no way home, no forever in Bliss, no seeing Our Lord face to face. And I love your thanks notebook.

My favorite from your list this time was #2117. (and yes I’m jealous that you have so many – and the beautiful pictures to go along with them – I’ll have to work on that.) – anyway I pick “for the sun's reflection on the water” – because I love that path that leads from it – right over the water – to wherever I stand – nature’s lesson on our connected-ness with Our Lord.

God Bless and keep you and yours

Amanda said...

I love how you notice the small and big blessings alike AND write them down! I, too, have loved that first breath of fresh air after working inside and seeing my little one hug her favorite toys.

Ang said...

I love your photos, but your list as well. How wonderful it is to be thankful in all things!

Kindra said...

Wonderful week of blessings! I love all of the photos too. Anlon's looking at Bennett with complete awe :) And I really love the pics of Kensie as well as Heather and Casey - can't wait to see the others!

Cora from Hidden Riches said...

So glad I came to check out your list today!!! First thing that impressed me was the numbering -- that you have continued to find the gifts waaaaaay past 1,000! I'm just starting, but already find that the mindset is sinking in. Your post was such an encouragement to me! Thank you!

Deborah said...

New to your post. Have really enjoyed reading your list. I believe the list comes from the book "One thousand gifts". Can you tell me a little about what it's about.

Chrissy said...

Beautiful list, Amber. I love the picture of Bennett and Anlon. Isaiah is one of my favorites. Thankful for you!
