linking up to Sweet Shot Tuesday... can't choose just one! :)


  1. What a great list of things to be grateful for! I just recently started making my own list. Isn't it amazing how God blesses us beyond our comprehension? Have a blessed day! And btw, your pictures are lovely!

  2. Gorgeous barn and frosted trees!

  3. the barn is fabulous! I just started reading "One Thousand Gifts" bawling!!!!

  4. I’m here from Ann’s – and it’s Thursday – but you know how many there were to get through – and I love reading them. It just took me this long to get to yours.

    My fave from the list by the way - and a bonus picture to show that I was having fun, too... although the sun wasn't in a good spot! :) (because I’m sure it’s one of the rare times that you get a picture taken – because if there’s one taken – it’s usually you taking it – right?) {smile}

    Your list was contagious, and I’m more thankful for having read it.

    God Bless and Keep you and yours

  5. I love the photos to go with you list. You and your children had a marvelous day to revel in the snow. I relish brisk days with icy trees and sledding involved. The barn photo is beautiful. I'm a country girl stuck in the city, so I look at it a bit envious. {wrong I know, but I do so love the country.} I love the picture of you and I think the sunshine adds to the photo, really. Thanks for sharing from your heart. I always enjoy reading.

  6. Another great list and I love your photos. I have never scrapped booked, but my Sister and Nieces do and the things they create are just beautiful.


I would love to reply to your comments, but I can't unless you have an email available in your profile!
