It's been a while since I blogged a Multitude Monday post... not that there hasn't been a multitude of gifts, just not much time for editing and uploading pictures, typing out blog posts and making it look good. Even now, I am not sure this is the best use of my time, but I want to keep counting and sharing my gifts with you!
I find it easiest to remember when I take pictures, but sometimes the pictures are blurry... still I want to give thanks for December, for Advent, for remembering Jesus' birth and coming to earth...
