Multitude Monday

holy experience

62. Short weeks at work! Yay!

63. Everlasting, sung by Hillsong. I love this! And truly, THIS is why I am thankful today and all days. I am learning 'the art of losing myself in bringing Him praise'. Here are some of the lyrics. Check it out.
A thousand times I've failed
Still your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
Still I'm caught in your grace

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
In my heart, in my soul, Lord I give you control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise become my embrace
To love You from the inside out

Your will above all else, my purpose remains
The art of losing myself in bringing you praise

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart is to bring You praise
From the inside out Lord, my soul cries out
64. This dinner: sauerkraut (that Grace 'helped' make here) with dumplings, pork roast & baked potatoes. SO good! This came right out of the crock. We've had a failed attempt at making kraut before so this tasted even better after not having it for years. There was also mashed potatoes and ring bologna, but not on my plate. (Hubby and I each grew up with sauerkraut, but we each are used to it with different side dishes, so instead of one of us missing a key element to a childhood meal, we make it all! It all goes as leftovers, anyway...) Good job, hubby! You get an 'A'!
65. This girl. She ate this meal 2 times yesterday and kept telling me how good it was. Yup, I'm such a good cook, I can add ricotta cheese to a jar of spaghetti sauce and make a meal a 5 year old will scarf down! (She ate this instead of sauerkraut, AND insisted I take a photo of her eating it.)
66. This girl, again, who is suddenly SO GOOD. She pushes all our buttons, has some of the biggest tantrums I've ever seen, and suddenly, unexpectedly, a good week. Thank you Jesus!
67. Brief moments of camaraderie.
I am making something for someone I am having such a hard time with. I am trying to prayerfully, thoughtfully thank God for this person as I focus on them while crafting this thing I can't tell you about or show you until after Christmas. Here are a few thankful points:
68. The love of music, instilled from birth
69. Creativity
70. Unique style
71. A heart thirsty for God
72. A great sense of humor
73. Loyal
74. Sensitive
75. Hears God
76. Teaches me, even when I don't want to learn or change
77. Smart
Thank you, God, for putting this person in my life, their iron sharpening my iron...

78. Grace and the crown she proudly wore to church yesterday. I could learn a lot about confidence from our little princess.

79. A short week - did I mention that already? :o) 4 days off coming up!

Happy Thanksgiving! Eat turkey, love people, thank God!

  1. Don't they just exasperate us sometimes? Mine's 21. So tumbled, jumbled, shining, pushing through life like a fresh Spring bulb pushing through the earth. Sniffling, remembering, laughing, working, sinning, texting, making a home. Some of this won't be in Heaven, I surmise. Will she? I fear, no...I hope with the substance of faith in the Everlasting. She will, I will. It is His will.
