Again, tonight a warm meal arrived at my door at 6:00. In response to my recent operation and my recovery, our family is receiving daily love-gifts. Love comes to my door--- from my friends and neighbors in the beautiful, tangible form of food. Amazing. Humbling. Healthy, filling food. ...healthy, filling love on a plate.
Each week, I join a group of brothers and sisters in counting our way to 1,000 grace-gifts from a kind Father. We are attempting to see God and His gifts throughout our days--and to note them, count them. Each day Father brings "to my door" tangible, warm, amazing love gifts. He pours out daily grace gifts... and I am learning to see them more.
Here are a few on my list from these past two weeks:
#701. Happy kids
#702. Seeing his face as he gets off the train. He is home!
#704. She give him a bouquet of flowers... an offering of love.
#708. My tired man sleeps past his alarm. ...let him sleep, he needs it!
#711. He sits there in the hospital room for days. He reaches out to touch my head ...to let me know he is there.
#712. Hemmed in.
#718. A darling, kind nurse who calls me "darling".
#719. Prayer emails pour in... people are praying. What a blessing!
#721. Chicken soup made with love. Yummy love
#724. Nurses who give dignity even when all pride and modesty go out the window.
#727. Compassionate looks, sad eyes, tender touches from my children.
#728. Flowers dropped by.
#739. He sings to me, "I do all things well!"
#743. Breakfast conversations about deep things, real things, God things.
#746. Forced silenced, reflection, a laying down. Literally.
#747. She keeps checking on me, ...my sweet girl.
#752. Blue skies and dancing green trees outside my window.
#756. A walk in the rain.
#757. Quick forgiveness given. Asked. Given.
#763. He wanted to put my shoes on for me... even after I could do it for myself again.
