Oh yes! Bonus day.
Please don't misunderstand. I love my job. I love the sweet girls I work with and the patients that teach me what nursing really means.
But I also love my family and a chance to hang with them on this beautiful day... I'll take it.
We recognize common grace.
The magnificent weather. The soft old quilt. Baby squeals. Good books.
Every good gift is from God through Jesus and undeserved.
If I look intently, I can see that everything is a gift. Common grace.
Even Evangeline feels common grace as she giggles gleefully, the Texas wind blowing warm air her way. We hope to teach her to see it. To know it.
And this view... common grace for sure ;)
The book we're reading is The Jesus Storybook Bible. A gift from Honey, and so so good.
Also, if you're interested, Ann Voskamp has a beautiful blog, book, and devotional about counting gifts and giving thanks.
