multitude monday

Here's my continuing Multitude Monday post, which all started a while back, right here on a wonderful, amazing blog that I read each day.

"One Thousand Gifts":

1693. a really fun family day::1694. the man working out next to me at the Y reading his well-loved (TONS of underlines, notes and highlights) Bible :: what a blessing! reminded me of this quote :: "A Bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn't." (Charles Spurgeon -- the guy my nephew was named after)
1695. helping at preschool::
1696. a good outcome to a stressful, potentially yucky situation involving an anxious deer nearly in an all-out panic
1697. kids walking to school on a glorious fall morning
1698. strangers telling me that I have a beautiful baby (I know being beautiful isn't the most important thing by any standards we hold, but I think she's beautiful and it's nice to have others think so too . . . and mention it!)
1699. the library
1700. Home Depot
1701. backyard fires with hot dogs and s'mores::1702. open spaces to run and play and relax
1703. sharing old stories
1704. a big van that can haul lots of kids (all ours and room for a few extras)
1705. new music to love
1706. an encouraging, fun, unexpected email (who doesn't love a surprise?)
1707. answered prayer (Quinlyn is home!)
1708. doctors and antibiotics
1709. my Bible study girls
1710. online shopping (+ free shipping)
1711. surprising people and brightening their days a bit
1712. . . . knowing that it makes a difference
1713. a beautiful full moon::1714. wrapping up fall soccer::
1715. the beauty of creation::
Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for the next installment.
