Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I enjoyed your ongoing list. It's always fun to read and is a good reminder for me to think about all those little blessings in my life too.

Ah, yes. I was expecting those oreo cookies. Enjoy those all you can! (as long as you have those lovely kids around to help eat them.)

Hay, you are half way home. I am so impressed yet realize if we all took time to look around, we would have so many things to be grateful for. Thanks.
479. A clean house
Why is it that no one drops in to visit right after you clean instead, they come right before you should?
