We are surrounded with an abundance of small gifts everyday.
Abundance- a Large quantity of something, plentifulness of good things (according to Webster)
We are surrounded by lots of small gifts and that makes us have a very Abundant Life, indeed.
Even in the midst of chaos, trials, and storms we can still find small blessings and we can cling to the hope of the fact we truly have an Abundant Life.
Here are some little snippets of our Abundant Blessings today......
Oatmeal Cookies that were so divine put smiles on my family face and made the home smell cozy.
A finished puzzle that I challenged myself to do. I haven't done a puzzle in years. This made me smile at the patience God gifted me through the process and the reward at the end.
Apple Pie....my VERY FIRST FROM SCRATCH PIE CRUST AND PIE FILLING!!!!! I can not tell you how pleased I was to accomplish this. It wasn't the prettiest but man it was wonderful and warm.
Which led to a TEA TIME with reading aloud to the kids. Little House in the Big Woods and our Bible passages in Exodus. Seeing them smile, smack, lick lips, and laugh was worth the mess from pie making.
A new contact book filled with precious friends and family. What a blessing to have loved ones and friendship in my life.
I said a spontaneous yes to my son when he asked if I would play basketball. I stopped what I was doing and went and played with him. We had so much fun and giggled at me trying to make hoops. The kids pulled out a very messy game but we had fun!
Loving my apron! Means I am blessed to be a homemaker of this home and my wonderful family.
Hand picked flowers and sticks made into a little bouquet by little girls. They were so proud.
Driving with my teenager today! This brings smiles and well fear. Hahaha!
No picture of that one because I was trying to guide him and pay attention. *Smiles*
I am blessed with Abundant Gifts all day. Guess what you are too!
Oatmeal Cookie recipe is here. I halved this recipe and put raisins in some and chocolate chip in the other half.
Apple Pie crust recipe is here. Apple pie filling here. I just used the directions for the filling not the crust because I made that from scratch.
