Ordinary Graces...

Back to routine... back to everyday life.  God's grace still new every morning... especially on ordinary days!

Reconnecting with friends over the Christmas break via email... hoping to get together in the coming weeks!

My growing son... his shoe size went from size 4 to size 6 over the Christmas break!

Great first day back to work for hubby and me... great first day back to school for the kids.

My daughter doing very well preparing for her upcoming Royal Conservatory of Music piano exam.  She is hoping for a great result!  I am very proud of her focus and determination.

Leftovers!  I don't have to make dinner.

Hubby receiving a plaque of appreciation from Habitat for Humanity Toronto for his work in ensuring a smooth transition to their new home where IT and telecommunication systems are concerned.  Thankful for God's grace as hubby worked very long hours to make this happen those few days between Christmas and New Year... extremely proud of my man!

Beautiful snowfall.

I was knocked-out by a stomach flu for a few days this past week... thankful for my doting hubby, my warm bed and my very understanding boss who ordered me to turn off my computer until Monday (today!). :-)

Yummy congee for this sick girl's tummy!  Hubby went to buy some (twice!) even though it was snowing bad... nearest congee restaurant is in the neighbouring city.  Did I already say he's one doting hubby?!?  Each day I thank God for giving me a priceless gift in my wonderful hubby... I am blessed beyond measure... all because of grace!

A reminder that as Christ followers, we are to live life radically!

Finally feeling better from my bout with the flu... making Sunday night dinner and thankful that my Heavenly Father is also the Great Physician.

There is finally enough snow on the ground for the kids to go tobogganing! 

Until next Monday... may you also see God's grace in your every-days!

Unwrapping more of His love in this world.
Act justly.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with God!
