Whew it seems like my life has been crazy busy lately and it also seems like time is just flying by faster and faster the older I get.
As I go through each day I usually try to write down or take pictures of some of the blessings I come across so I will have reminders of all the wonderful gifts I have received from God. This evening I was going through my phone and I was amazed at all of the pictures and notes I had written down in only a week.
Here are just a handful of the awesome gifts I received this week.
This first picture is from last Saturday which was the 4th of July, we had our little grandsons Mason & Gavin at our house and to make a long story short fireworks were not their idea of a fun time so they watched from a safe distance inside the house with grandma. I just love these sweet boys so much ❤
The next day was Sunday. I arrived at church and found these waiting for me 🙂 On Monday I worked at the Compassion Mobile Experience. This is pretty cool and a lot of fun to work at and visit. Visitors of the experience get to go on an interactive tour through the life of a past Compassion child who is all grown up now. As the child tells their story through an iPod and headset the visitor gets to travel along through rooms that look, feel, and smell just like the child’s life as they grew up. As visitors move through the child’s journey they get to see how the child’s life changed from one of poverty to hope after they came into Compassion’s program.
153 children were sponsored at the Mobile Experience this weekend and these are the prayers their new sponsors left for them.If the Compassion Mobile Experience ever comes to your town be sure to take the time to walk through it, you will be glad you did.
Tonight my husband and I went on a date and we had really good conversation and some really great food… I don’t have any pictures of date night but its still fresh in my mind.
If you are interested, I try to post blessings on my gifts page (tab at the top of this blog) from time to time.
Writing down and taking pictures of blessings is something I do because if I am ever having a bad day I always know I can go to my journal or my pictures and see thousands of reminders as to God’s awesomeness and love that he gives me on a daily basis. When we really look for them we will usually find God’s gifts are always there just waiting to be opened.
I would say over all this was a pretty good week 🙂
I hope you also have a wonderful and blessed weekend and week and don’t forget to stop along the way and open all the gifts that God has left for you,
