our trip in pictures {and a few words}

We were blessed, indeed,

with the opportunity to take

a wonderful vacation in Florida.

We are so thankful for God's provision

of this time through friends.

We played in the sand

and in the sea.

We had one {very} hot day, {very} fun day

riding, seeing, surprising! {We told the kids about our day at the Magic Kingdom on the ride there.}

And this baby loved the waves on her toes.

Thankful.

Now, to attempt to catch up a little on sharing the counted gifts. Have still been counting, but have gotten behind on sharing them here, which will explain the outdated seeming parts:
  • {73} An old man asks Jonathan for a few dollars for something to eat, but we can only find one dollar between us. He makes a sandwich for the man, filling a bag with a few things. Miles comes to the kitchen with two dollars and some change. All the money he had, he gave away.
  • {74} Ella missing Miles as he attends a neighborhood VBS she's not old enough for. "He has VBS the next day adain?"
  • {74} Miles trying to encourage Ella just before her last swim lesson - she was crying and anxious and had asked for piggy tails. "Oh, you look so pretty!" was part of the pep talk.
  • {75} Miles telling me that Matthew and Luke are in the middle of the bible, then he says "some stories are still being written." {On his 6th birthday-eve}
  • {76}Rain over a thirsty, dry area.
  • {77} A cold pack wrapped around a sprained ankle, my man telling me to rest.
  • {78} Elijah and Ella sitting close, video on my iPhone, his head on her shoulder.
  • {79} Miles and his dad working on a hot wheel track together {birthday gift!} together.
  • {80} A sleeping Milla in my lap, weighty, warm.
  • {81} Beautiful, powerful heat lightning.
  • {82} Tall, puffy, cotton-ball clouds. Bright white on blue skies.
  • {83} Being in the Pike Road 4th of July Parade with Elijah, Miles, Ella, Kell and Ian {my nephews}. Fun!
  • {84} Spurgeon's words: "We have been in many trials, but we have never yet been cast where we could not find in our God all that we needed." See Isaiah 26:4
  • {85} A date with Milesy.
  • {86} Falling in love with him all over again!
To be continued. Not caught up, but still counting...

See what others thank Him for at Ann's
