Linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasure
“Gratitude helps you grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.” Eileen Caddy
This week we've been away....up north...way up...in the mountains. It's true ...the hills really are alive with the sound of music and being out in them....you can hear their song everywhere you step. This week I'm thankful for
-Mountains.....we hiked. all over them....breathing in their power and awesomeness
-Dominique....someone we met who touched all of us.Her kindness to us made the trip even more special.
-Stones - we spent time fishing for stones in the lakes - so many difference colored and shaped ones. A small thing but something that brought so much joy with each amazing find.
-Guidance -coming home we made a wrong turn and drove 5 hours before realizing we had no idea where we were. We finally found out that we were going in the wrong direction. We prayed and were led to an amazing hotel that was perfect.....the people were wonderful and it even had a waterpark for the kids.
-The beauty He provided - He made all this...the mountains....the lakes...the variety of flowers and stones.....the animals...all of it for us to enjoy. I think He knew there would be times we would become discouraged....and going outside...in His creations renews faith and hope like nothing else could.
