monday gifts

thankful for… 
A little creativity, just for fun, it had been a while and I missed it.
When burdens get lifted from shoulders, responsibilities that should never have been shouldered in the first place, it’s such a relief.

Sore arms. I spent what felt like hours scrubbing the carpet where I spilled a drastic amount of nail polish…ugh! I gave up several times but it did all come out and I’m thankful!

The gigantic ego boost of having a 4 year old girl be obsessed with me and play with my hair and say things such as, “I like your glasses, Frances.” I felt taller and more awesome after all that. Haha. I’ve switched to helping with younger kids at church and it’s just real fun.

Quiet, cool mornings.

Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings. -Psalm 17:7-8 ESV

  1. Wow, Frances, I’m loving your photography! I love that first picture of the apple and the last of the pine branch…so cool! And your painting…I wish I could paint like that! I especially love the gift of the 4 yr old loving on you…little ones are such a blessing aren’t they! And your cousins look really sweet! I’m blessed to be counting our gifts together! We have a good God, don’t we! So glad to meet you 🙂
