Multitude Monday ~ One Thousand Gifts ~ Remembering the Past Year


I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will  remember your wonders of old.
I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.

~ Psalm 77:11-12

Great books to read while healing:

265 ~ MORE joy in the morning, after the mourning

266 ~ Remembering miracles

267 ~ And as I look back through this year, I am in awe of God’s goodness, mainly for a family together, for children that love and seek their own personal, individual faith with our Savior.  It’s not me – nor my husband.  It’s been truly His amazing grace and mercy that has kept us together through joys and sorrows, fears and triumphs, brokenness and continued healing.  With renewed joy, I look forward to the new year and what God has for us.

ALWAYS . . . .
