Things I’m thankful for this morning:
Trash bags– I found some biodegradable rubbish bin liners (as they call them here) and I’m happy to put them to use!
King Arthur Flour website recipes– try the cinnamon scones
David comes back to Kenya tomorrow!
Lovely memories of the birds, the acacia trees, the sunset on the lake, from a family weekend on Lake Naivasha
The many types of birds who live here that lift our spirits with their carefree flying and jubilant songs
The kindly painter who told me that I made good chai (I nearly doubled the sugar yesterday!)
The friendly joking and laughing of the construction guys working at our house
Bright fires on chilly nights
Will is content with his job and has been commended lately for his teaching
The Lord’s reminder of all the wonderful people (specifically from ACU) who encouraged us to do missions
Sibling pairs who are friends with our girls
New kids coming to school next year and all the possibilities therein
Peter’s enthusiasm for the guitar
Coco soundtrack, especially the Spanish version
Two families who visited this summer– we appreciate you!
Cry, the Beloved Country
The repetition of the phrase “I, the LORD, have spoken!”
Carol truly grandmothering our kids
Each time one of the kids says “Thank you”
Talking to Katherine on the phone
Reading this was a great way to start my day this morning! Blessings on you for your thankful, joyful hear!
