Multitude Monday, Take 207

“There is one thing we can do, and the happiest people are those who can do it to the limit of their ability. We can be completely present. We can be all here. We can...give all our attention to the opportunity before us.” (Mark Van Doren, quoted in Getting Things Done)

Trying to keep my eyes open to the gifts God gives here and now, the blessings before me every moment—including...

1707. cabinets and drawers reorganized
1708. squirt gun fights

1713. big red and blue plastic balls – best $5 I've spent this summer
1714. sidewalk chalk
1715. Steve's gospel insights
1716. Jude covered in avocado

1717. singing songs with my boys
1718. the fact that our patio/deck are almost totally shaded all day
1719. time to write thoughtful emails during naps
1720. Steve's offer to give me a mental health day
1721. a morning of praying and writing and reading at Starbucks

1723. a little shopping, a few good deals
1724. bluish purples and purplish blues
