  1. love your list... I love how reading our gratitudes brings the blessing back time after time.
    blessings as your find your rest in Him and wait on Him, who alone knows us and yet 'loves' us.
    He showers us with good gifts! Love your sunset and your dripping leaves!

  2. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    I loved especially #419, 427 and 432. I am SO happy you are in the Photo Scavenger Hunt. It blesses my heart. #427 - Sleep is always welcome. I didn't know you struggled with that, but I'm glad you got some. # 432 - That picture is incredibly beautiful. As Susan said, "He showers us with good gifts?"

    Counting down the days till surgery with you,


Thanks for stopping by . . . appreciate your comments.
