Our family's Lil' Norwegian is an amazing blessing. I love the photos my niece Kristin posts on Facebook of Kenzie.
I completed a study on the book of Revelation called A Heart To See Forever by Catherine Martin. In one of the study questions, Catherine wrote the following statements about the seven blessings in Revelation.
"That word for bless is makarios and means that your satisfaction comes from God and not from favorable circumstances. It is a wonderful thing to be blessed by God."
I thought of how so many consider blessings to be only the seemingly good things they get or do. But in the Lord's eyes, that is not always so. To find contentment in relationship with Him is the best blessing.
The past week was picture day at our school. The children normally wear school uniforms but they were permitted to wear what they call normal clothes for photos. I had to laugh at this one!
I wish I could show you this whole picture but check out Hadley's shoes. Are they cute or what?
I'm linking up with Ann of A Holy Experience as I continue to count ...
