Multitudes on Mondays

"Everything is indeed for you, so that the grace 
bestowed in abundance on more and more people may 
cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God."  
-2 Corinthians 4:15

When you come to recognize the continual presence of God around you day in and day out and the love He brings, a joy and peace just dwells richly inside of you.  And, as He plans perfectly, the joy and love is radiated through you to others.  All to bring Him glory and bring others closer to Him.  Let us continue to recognize Him and His love for us in even the smallest, simplest ways He chooses to reveal Himself to us....

Thanks be to God for these and all graces received....

    You are so sweet, my friend of Ann Voskamp! How very busy you are! A mother of six and farm wife! I wonder where the farm is? I am the mother of seven sons who also lives on a farm - in Michigan. Our sweet corn is not ripe yet! Blessed mothering!

  2. Hi Bernice!
    Yes, busy indeed with all the right things! 7 boys - wow!! What a blessing! We live on the IA/IL border, but do not live on an actual farm, but there are plenty around us! My dh and I grew up in the country with many acres, we just have 1-1/4 acres and it's plenty for us for now. Thanks for visiting!
    God bless you in your counting 1000 Gifts!! <><
