I am counting my blessings today because whatever happens in the world, in Washington, in our lives....God is still on the throne! So today I celebrate life, and our God who loves life too.
Ever notice how perfect strangers will crowd around a newborn or new baby animal with Ooohhs and Ahhhs? All divisions are melted away when we gather around a life that is new, vulnerable, that needs protection....only the most disburbed and hardened soul could not soften a bit at images such as these.....
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
"And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:24,25
"He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young." Isaiah 40:11
I am thankful today for all things new and wonderful, as I continue counting I am focusing today on what is good: "Finally, brothers, whatever is true#248, whatever is noble#249, whatever is right#250, whatever is pure#251, whatever is lovely#252, whatever is admirable#253—if anything is excellent#254 or praiseworthy#255—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
Also thankful for flowers in spring#256, newborn babies#257, all baby animals#258, the hope of a new day#259 and all the promise and wonder that comes with spring#260!
If you want a dose of extreme cuteness see this movie, it's been out a long time but worth watching with your little ones, and yes there is a happy ending!
Continue counting with Ann, myself and others....
