Multitude Monday, Take 349

"...keep your eyes open, your heart broken,
and the words thank you always on the edge of your tongue."

Thanking God this week for...

7333. Steve's healthy view of his job--not having his identity tied up in his work
7334. supper salads
7335. hydrangeas blooming in the neighborhood
7336. the privilege of spending a morning studying Scripture

7337. our turn to be family of the week on our church's prayer list
7338. being able to go to Wednesday night prayer meeting since school is out
7339. the beautiful, earnest prayers of brothers and sisters
7340. hearing them pray for our family
7341. time to chat with our pastor afterward

7342. boys sitting and reading with me first thing in the morning
7343. friends coming over after VBS
7344. an encouraging note from a friend
7345. double-batch of strawberry-rhubarb jam
7346. opportunity to serve a friend by babysitting her boys before VBS one day

7347. houseful of boys, having fun and playing together
