Lifting hearts to God in thanks and praise.

When I woke in the night I thought of all the things coming and went immediately to prayer.

When I think of how the day could have gone wrong, a thousand little things…
instead grace, a thousand little things went RIGHT!
How can I not praise him?

Here are a few:
Birthday girl with homemade pinata (dolphin theme)

The cake Mom freestyle cut (imagine the flippers!)

The food: chips, chili, salad, cornbread (open house)

Glowing of 11 candles!

The eating!

Plenty of presents, but what she wanted most was money.
To fill the account to send to Heydi, the Guatemalan girl also 11
we “adopted” last year through Compassion, whose birthday was last month, and so Ravinia received quite a bit of money for Heydi.

I’m not quite full of grace and peace: I need to recount in God’s ear
all the answered prayers of this day, with my thanks!
But mostly, for eleven years so far.
