multitude monday

continuing to count…what a week He has given!

Monday 7/11- Sunday 7/17
650. for a day off together to run errands, eat lunch and get things done
651. nerves and butterflies on the way to the baby doctor
652. that tiny heart beating so strong on the ultrasound screen
653. tiny legs and arms squirming
654. our growing, healthy, perfect baby boy
655. tears…our first sight of our child
656. the intimacy of that moment, finding out we will be parents to a son
657. registering fun at babysrus
658. date night dinner, celebrating our family
659. sharing the news with our whole family
660. picking out fabric for a sweet baby’s nursery
661. a fresh haircut
662. a break from the heat- two cloudy mid 70 degree days
663. the sweetest card in the mail
664. shorts that fit
665. celebrating my mother in laws birthday
666. 45 min extra sleep after a long night of tossing and turning
667. that John and I continually grow together, figuring out this thing called marriage
668. conversations about parenthood
669. starting to work on Landon’s nursery
670. baby kicks
671. riding home with the windows down
672. how certain smells bring back certain memories so strong…and bring a smile along with it.
673. chocolate chip cookies
674. the first few ripe grape tomatoes out of my garden

God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him,
though he is not far from any one of us.
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’
As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
Acts 17:28
