Day ‘can’t remember’ to yesterday :) 

Well, the year is rocketing past at a stupid pace and while I’ve still been taking Polaroids and adding to my Grateful book, I haven’t managed to post them up here (in case you hadn’t noticed!). 

It’s been a full and lovely couple of months: some birthdays, catch ups with friends, work, chill time and the start of Uni (eeek!!) and lots of ‘normal’ days in between🙂  

So here’s some of the past months grateful entries🙂 Hope all is well in your world! 

Day 106-125

Get ready for 20 days of gratefulness! 

From ‘just because’ flowers to dates to Saturday netball to time with a variety of much loved friends and family to mini beach holidays to painting bedrooms, there is plenty to be grateful for :)

Day 97-105

The last nine days have included dinner with my lovely mum and dad, a gecko stand off with our small fluffy four legged Vincent (dog 1, gecko 0), celebrating that husband of mine’s birthday, seeing our friend’s band play (they were outstanding), election of my husband to church council (I voted no but he got in anyway), chill time and finally today, some long awaited writing time. 

So grateful for the fullness of life! 

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10 vs 10 

    
 

Day 85-87

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Grateful.

And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. Luke 22:44

Grateful.

Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull. Here they crucified him… John 19:17,18

Grateful.

…Jesus said, It is finished. With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30

Grateful.

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16

Grateful.

Day 75-84

It’s been another full week or so. And I’m grateful for the Grateful 365 project. 

Having to intentionally home in on what there is to be thankful for is not easy on the ‘ordinary’ days and I guess that’s the point. It is definitely helping me ‘stay in the moment’.

     
    
 

Day 74 – new life from old

While wandering the garden this morning, I spotted the loveliest yellowy-orange fungi growing out of an old tree stump. And I was reminded, as we draw near to Easter, of the miracle of new life coming out of old; of vibrant life from death. 

And I am so very, very grateful for the new life that Easter brings to all who simply look and see.
