The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Appreciating The Small Things
Had the opportunity today to do some things around the house. We had no real agenda, didn't have to be anywhere, we were free to do household chores at our leisure. Love these kind of days...
I was able to transplant some seedlings and pot a geranium
slice and dehydrate some apples
bake a banana bread to take to Easter dinner
and make dinner for my husband and myself
I know this sounds like no big deal, and a year ago it wouldn't have been, but things have changed. I now realize what blessing it is to be able to do the simple things. I want to cultivate a heart of gratitude, to continue to be thankful for the things we so often take for granted...like being able to cook a meal, or work in the garden.
My desire is to be more aware of the blessings I receive each day, there is so much to be thankful for.
When thou hast thanked thy God for every blessing sent, What time will then remain, For murmurs or lament? R.C. Trench
"Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men" Psalm107:8
