Continuing to Count My Blessings

As another week has passed I continue to count the blessings I receive from our good and gracious God.

61~ blue skies


62~ family to help watch my kids as I head off for my days of jury duty


63~ daily bread


64~ prayer


65~ new friends


66~ old friends


67~ quiet time


68~ blowing bubbles



69~ freedom to worship


70~ homegrown vegetables


71~ steak on the grill


72~ sound of crickets outside


73~ air conditioning on a hot day
