Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Filling Me

This counting, adding up, becoming aware of all of the blessings in my life is how He is filling my heart. Discovering that He is enough, always enough. As long as I have Him, my heart is always full. Even in the toughest of times, the most unlikely of places.

In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Giving thanks in everything, learning this is where we find more of Him. We learn He fills us up when nothing or no one else can. And in that find the gift of His goodness in all things.

This week, as we pause to give thanks, etch the moments on your heart. For He is good, always.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 136:1

An unexpected nap on the floor, exactly the same way I would find her at six months old. Sweet memories.

~That she counts my kisses, and says "only three?"
~Holding little hands
~Lunch with a dear friend
~Warm blankets
~Swinging with her on my lap
~Never ending belly laughs
~He is always, always, always good
~Watching Daddy read her books in front of the fire
~Discovering precious, precious new books
~Watching her read
~Our fuzzy Alex, despite his quirks
~Rediscovering old childhood favorites with Anastacia
~His grace in teaching me to trust Him
~Catching glimpses of the baby still in her
~Making ornaments to remember Isaac
~Family days
~Eucharist, remembering Him
~A friend to bless me with new perspective
