Multitude Mondays

holy experience

Sometimes there are no words, sometimes you just have to step back for a while. That is what I have been doing. I've withdrawn myself not only from blog-land but from friends and family. I just have not had the energy to put into anything or anyone else.
It sounds a little selfish and I guess it was. But I needed some time for myself.

God and I have been having a lot of conversations lately. I've been so focused on my sister and what was going on in her life that I forgot about all the blessings in my life.

God sent so many blessings our way during Christmas. I have a post started about all the blessings we received. Hopefully I will get it finished soon.

But for now I thought it was very appropriate that I come back to blog-land with a Multitude Monday Post.

48. All the I love yous I get from my kids throughout the day.

49. Communication skills my husband and I have learned over the years.

50. Anonymous family from our church who made my children very happy at Christmas. I had no idea that they were going to get the kids all that they did.

51. My son for always making me laugh, he opened his Nike shoes and said "Mom, these shoes have check marks on them."

52. My son's Principal has been wonderful to our family, she is such a blessing.

53. Warm blanket and gloves my children picked out for me for Christmas.

54. Heating pad.

55. Ice cream in the winter.

56. A husband who will help me to color my hair. (he may have just been trying to save money:)

57. All the "For Dummies" books they make my life easier and I love them.

58. Christian music.

If you would like to share your gifts with everyone, hop on over to Ann's.

It's always encouraging to see other's gratitude lists. Your a little ahead of me. Been writing them in a journal just slacking on posting.

Your in my prayers.

Glad to see you back! What encouraging words! Sometimes it's all we can do to do the things that must be done! I love a husband who will color the hair! Mine had to blowdry mine after my arm surgery and I know that was a stretch for him!

Love you and keep on depending on Him.

OHHH, how I love that comment about the check-marked shoes! You're such a blessing... I'm glad you're back, sweet friend. But it's OK to take some time away, to retreat a while. We all need our space from time to time. Happy New Year.

How wonderful to look back over your marriage and see how your communication skills have improved! And how wonderful to have a husband who will help you color your hair even if it's just because he wants to save a few dollars!
Cherish him!
