  1. Dawn,
    You eyes see His deep beauty in everything and your lens, it captures it.
    Stunning photos…
    Searching for Him too, and He`s everywhere, and we give Him thanks…
    Grateful for you, kind friend…
    All’s grace,

  2. I know just how you feel. I’m trying to be purposeful in developing a better attitude and that includes an attitude of gratitde. It’s easy to get caught up in narrow vision of the day to day – but in the GRAND scheme – there is SO much to be thankful for.
    Whenever negative thoughts start to creep in I’m clinging to phil. 4:11 to guard my heart and redirect my mind to dewell on … “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable

  3. Healthy family, A roof over our head (even if it isn’t our own), A sensitive and sweet 3 year old, Happy 4 month old; loving, hard-working husband.
    For my life and for Jesus saving me from certain death. Thank you. I needed to speak these words today. It is so easy to look at your life negatively when in reality….we have much to be thankful for.

  4. I love this post. The picture of the dirtly little feet inspires so many thoughts-that which is precious and created by His hand encountering the muck of this world-yet He is always there. That is what I am thankful for-that He is always there. And that He is a God who washes feet clean.

  5. I am so thankful for family.
    I am so grateful for the opportunity to start anew, every single day.
    I am also thankful for the experiences of others, that not only give me the opportunity to learn, but also help me pause and reflect on what I have that I take for granted.
    Thank you for this post. It was timely indeed

  6. Warmth on a cold night, peace in a troubled heart, hugs from friends when words just won’t cut it, and my family… all among too many blessing to count! And that is a blessing in and of itself.
