Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

A Basket Full of Thanks {Mondays}

I'm continuing my Monday counting of One Thousand Gifts, along with many other women taking Ann Voskamp's challenge. Max, Maggie and I are filling our basket up with thanks, what a joy to see the pieces of paper covered in words of thanksgiving grow.  

"All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. May the glory of the LORD endure forever;  may the LORD rejoice in his works— he who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke. I will sing to the LORD all my life;  I will sing praise to my God as long as I live." Psalm 104:27, 30-33

11. Days of sunshine and slow paces just to enjoy.
12. My little Maggie napping with her Daddy, pure sweetness.
13. Dinner out with my love, just the two of us, enjoying heart to heart time.
14. Books (Max)

 15. Sunlight on lily pads.

16.  Trees lifting arms, reaching to touch Designer's face.

17. Freckles on noses I love to kiss.
18. Baby animals (Max)
19. Silence, precious when it comes.
20. Lunchbox (Maggie)

What are some of the God gifts you enjoyed this past week, how are you thankful, I'd love to know!


  1. So true...if you feel your life is lacking start by giving a deep heartfelt thank you for all you have been given! :)

  6. Hi Beck!
    Your blog is so full of peace! Thank you for that. I try to find all the blessings that come my way, even when things aren't going quite right. It has been raining here in Seattle for a few days now, and the sun is trying to peek through those grey clouds, and I see through my skylight patches of blue sky! My dog is snoring on the couch, my children are all healthy and happy, the apple tree that I am looking at while I talk to you is full of beautiful blossoms, I hear the birds singing overhead. Those are some of my blessings today, and meeting you is another~Lisa

    Visiting you from VoiceBoks!~Lisa
    I am all a twitter about life

  7. Thank you Lisa, I'm glad you came by for a visit. Those are beautiful blessings, thanks for sharing them.


I love hearing you sweet comments!
