Full, Crazy Week...

Our family's been *sharing* a nasty flu bug these past couple of weeks... we've been taking turns getting sick. I think we are all finally at the tail-end of it as we start this brand-new week, so thankful for God's sustaining grace! (#1058)

Despite the sickness, the hustle and bustle of life continues. We've had a busy week, to say the least. Sometimes I wonder why we are so busy?

What are we so busy about?
Are we busy about things that have eternal value?
Or are we busy with empty things?

These are good questions to ask every now and then. An inventory of how we spend our time as a family is in order sometimes, definitely a good thing to do.

This counting of grace-gifts also helps in giving us a glimpse of whether or not our time is spent on things with eternal value. With that in mind, this week's grace-gifts continues with #1059 - #1071... of gifts from our Heavenly Father who loves us.
Oh, how He loves!
If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.

  1. A few "sick" posts this morning. Guess it's that time of year.
    I love your gift of gratitude =)

  2. Love that song!! There is a movie of the book too!? I wonder if we could get it to do a showing at church. That would be cool!


  3. Hi Deborah.

    You can go to the film's website at and request a screening kit so that your church can show it.
