Thanking God this week for...

5083. Elijah's first Vacation Bible School experience
5084. fond memories of my own summers of VBS
5085. husband pursuing my heart
5086. a game of dominoes with Steve and Elijah
5087. Jude singing "Twinkle, twinkle, little Scar..." --a lullaby for the villain of his current favorite movie?

5088. orange lilies
5089. water flavored with lime
5090. this testimony from a woman whose husband cheated on her and how He restored their marriage
