gazing at the sky, cloud formations, different each day, the moon in all it's phases, the sun (what would we do without it),
the air we breathe, the refreshing summer rain, every first snowfall of every year for the rest of my life, the ocean breeze,
sand between my toes, the amazing vast view of the ocean
changing seasons - the colorful array of leaves by October's end, a blossoming, budding, blooming variety of flowers each spring, along with their unique fragrances
summer evenings spent catching fireflies -
tickles, giggles, laughter -having fun with my kids
a great children's book from the library (as long as it's returned on time)
the body you were born with
the family you were born into
being who you are, who God made YOU to be.................
best of all, the gift of salvation, -God's love and grace to all who are in Christ!!
"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ - by grace you have been saved - and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." ~Ephesians 2: 4-9
