About Me

My name is Meredith, and I am the mother of two awesome boys; the wife of a fantastic husband; the band director for 100 students in grades 5 - 12 in a small community in Maine; and a follower of Christ. This blog is a place for me to reflect on what the Lord is teaching me.

Giving thanks, 176 - 190, #1000gifts

Multitudes on Monday

176 -  Laura Story's song "Blessings" -- it makes me cry every single time I hear it, or sing it....
177 - Friends who support and build up
178 - A delicious dinner that the littlest boy loved, and could be modified so the oldest boy loved it too...
179 - dishes mostly done within minutes of being finished
180 - the warmth of the sun on my arms
181 - wonderful time of prayer and fellowship last night
182 - being certain of the Lord's call
183-  new clothes in my size at the thrift shop in our town!!
184 - a quiet dishwasher that works beautifully
185 - ugly/beautiful : disrespectful, disobedient five year old/ a picture of God's amazing grace because how often have we acted the same ways?
186 - friends home from China for just long enough for me to give them a detailed prayer request that would be very difficult to translate into "code".
187 - a truly repentant heart
188 - 16 month old laughter, smiles
189 - the beauty of God's creation  --- rolling green hills along a river,  forests of trees on the other side
190 - a weekend that seemed to last forever...  <3

Love 185! So true, parenting so often shows me His grace. And 190-- what's better than that?:)

Love 176! Heard this song just before we lost our baby ... it has really sustained me through much grief.
