Eighth Tuesday, 2011

On Sunday, we sang

"Ten thousand, thousand precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart
That tastes those gifts with joy."

                    from the hymn When All Thy Mercies by Joseph Addison (c1710)

Tasting with joy today...

warmth, delicious warmth with sun spilling across the kitchen
humming sewing machines
my sister-in-law, here for a week
backpacking sewing projects to figure out
the first daffodils blooming!
Lenten roses bursting into blossom, too
a new pool liner - come on spring and summer
laughter and fun at a church business meeting
co-op moms
quilt fabrics
little Jon's home from the hospital at last!

#1684- 1696
