Dipping My Heart in the Stream of Life

"All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the Fountain
Dip your heart in the stream of Life."
  

"My soul thirsts for God,
For the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?"
Psalm 42:2



#53. Michael pulls me into him, wraps his arms around me, and says (as he has every morning for 14.5 years) "I'm so glad you're my wife."  And I believe him.

#51. The hum of the lawnmower. 

#44.  Enough $ for groceries.

#41. Time to refill. To listen to the wind howl outside, to read from the Good Book, to ponder, breath in and out, to be still and know that He is God. 

#39. That a freshman in college, Taylor, is not too old to play (build igloos) with my kids. 

#27. After 6 months, finished reading Little Women with the girls. The books ending is bittersweet- I am so grateful for this memory made with my own "Little Women."( A memory I set out to make when I read it in 1987).

#24. Noah's hand running through my hair as we prayed.

# 19 Josie nestled into me as I read. 

#10. Emilie and Josie squealing as they swing.

#8. Laying in the sunshine streaming through the window.

I’ll be reading these thank you lists all week, so much good stuff. So sorry I’m late, it’s Wednesday, but I made it to yours and I know there’s a story – and I missed it somewhere – it’s my first time here – but I have to say that is some very original numbering on your list :)

and as for your thank you’s, this one is my favorite from your list this week: #8. Laying in the sunshine streaming through the window. (Laska the love kitty seconds my vote for this choice – he will search for just the perfect beam of light in which to sit)

Thank you for your list. It was good to read it this day. God Bless and Keep you and yours.
