Multitude Monday 63 and 64

I have taken a few weeks away from posting my gratitude list on Monday and I must be honest, I have missed it.  I have continued to count my blessings, but there is something about sifting through them at the end of the week that helps me to re-focus on the abundant life that God has poured out upon me.

We need to talk! John and I just watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and were very convicted. We also ordered a juicer and have been eating all raw foods for a couple weeks now! :)

Wow, I really love your list this week. And your night shot is fantastic - very cool. The Williams' pic is beautiful - and done just in time :)

The Blogger's Prayer is wonderful. What a poignant reminder to use every outpouring of ourselves for the purpose of bringing Him glory.
