#100. the joy of recognizing 100 precious God-given gifts in my life!

Counting gifts becomes easy, even in the midst of difficulty, when your eyes are open to the hand of God in your life. I am grateful for seeing the gifts that are all around me... daily... and naming each one. I am grateful that each gift is a gift from Him!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above"
James 1:17

May your week be blessed!


  1. Ah Joanne, so glad to hear he was able to come home on Easter Sunday!

  2. I am so glad to hear about Nolan! I have been praying for him, and was wondering how he was doing.

    I agree, never too old for Easter treats. My 15 yr old was suprised she still got an Easter basket. I will never stop giving them an Easter treat. Even when they are adults, they will always be my kids ;-)

  3. I second that Bobbi! I shopped and made up Easter baskets for 6 teenagers ranging from 14 to 19 years old. Their eyes light up just as much now as they did when they were younger.

    So happy to hear Nolan is home where he belongs.

    Hope you had a great Easter!

  4. So happy to hear your Easter miracle! Your Easter linens are beautiful. I love never being old for sweet Easter treats! We are all adults now and still get Easter baskets from my parents. ♥ Wonderful gift list!

  5. So glad to hear that Little Nolan was able to come home!

  6. Sounds like it was a good Easter! Love the pic of your son!

  7. Beautiful! So happy to hear about Nolan! (That happens to be the name we had picked out for Chloe is she was a boy!!)

    As for the chocolate - I totally kept a separate stash for Jeff and I to enjoy!! :)

  8. Such good news to hear Nolan's happy for you and your family.

  9. So happy to hear little Nolan is home now. An Easter blessing for sure. Your Easter linens are lovely too!

  10. Thank you to everyone for sharing in our happiness that little Nolan has finally come home!
