One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"Jesus said, 'I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full'" (John 10:10).

Living life to the fullest... that's what we sure did as we basked in His presence with beautiful waters, hot sand, relaxation, fun activities, and family and friends.

Continuing to give thanks...

-the much needed rain
-staying cool in the heat
-safe travels
-friend's mom is home from the hospital
-Jesus- our champion
-camp chapel
-the huge amount of fun the children had while camping with their cousins

-beautiful waters    -gracious brother giving boat rides
-a fun pastime (countless hours of golfing)   -Deborah having fun following her cousins
-family vacation   -pizza at the beach with all 15 grandkids

-Curtis' big catch  (and trying new things)

-sleeping on the beach
-soothing sound of the waves

-excited about new adventures
-patient cousin driving the boat for a swarm of eager children

-76 years of health and happiness

-reading time with her cousin
-a love for sports
-brothers bonding

Nice to meet you.

I'm stopping by from Ann Voskamp's blog link up. I'm counting those gifts with you...

and also thrilled about your adoption story. I have relatives who are adopted too, and my mom lived in Ethiopia for a while.

Have a great week.

Yay! We're both back. Now time for tea :) Did she really fall asleep on you? I bet you soaked that one up! Debora, save some of those snuggles for Auntie Heather!
