Such a great list today! Felt a lot of that building stress, then the release God gives. Isn't His grace just wonderful that way??? Love that little thingamagig your little one is sitting on with the water spray. How cool is that????? Thanks for posting your gratitudes again this week. It was great to have been here!

That boy of yours just keeps getting bigger and broader and bigger and broader – WOW. And my fave from the list this week Amber? 2358. for bright spots during days when I feel overly stressed (and know that I just finished praying for you – we all need those bright spots – like floaties – or those lane dividers in the picture – something to hang onto when we’re sinking – I hear you – and I am really thankful for the chance to pray for you!!)

God Bless you and Sam and the baby.

beautiful post!! Baptisms are such powerful events, not just for the one being baptized, Such a privilege to witness God's power in another person's life. We have a baptism service planned for this sunday. I'm so excited. How cool to be baptized on Easter?
