Multitudes on Mondays (doh, I guess Tuesday this week)

Perhaps the best way to apply the 
doctrine of God’s goodness is to live a 
perpetually thankful life   
-1 Thess. 5:18

 God's presence has been around us all week yet again.  Always here.  Always leading.  Guiding us to our true home if we but listen and open our hearts to Him.  What a joy it is for me to pick up the book that has led me on this journey.  The journey that has brought me one step closer to my heavenly home.  The journey that has made me (and my family) grasp onto the necessity of living a thankful life.  Every day.  Every hour.  Every minute.  And, then, what a joy it is to pick up the pen and write in our journal.  Always searching for and lifting up our hearts in prayers of thanksgiving for the gifts He gives.  
Thanks be to God for these and all the gifts He has given us this past week....
