My "Blessings"

I am learning to count my blessings every day. Our girls reminded me today that we need to do that in all circumstances, even when it is hard.
How? No simple answers to this tough question, but if we learn to look at all that God gives us every day, with every breath, with every step we take, we can surely say He is faithful and that we can trust that He will be there even in the tough moments.
In addition, are we really entitled to a life without difficulty or suffering?

Here are Isabella and Emanuela practicing "Blessings" by Laura Story.

Sixteenth Anniversary

Today is our sixteenth wedding anniversary. God has been good to us. I cannot believe it has been that long already, but I would surely do it all again.
Matt's words really speak to my heart and I hope I can be that loving friend and companion for you, Norine for many more years to come.
I hope I can always love you as Jesus loves His church, as He loves us.

Thank you Lord for my blue eyes, Norine.
