I wrap words around me
Like a blanket or a cave
They bring security and freedom

Some are mine
Thoughts pondered
And caught

Making sense of sorrows
Giving voice to smiles
Truths declared
Questions begged

Others authored
By friends and strangers
Friends all, really
Your catch, my feast

Silent here
Words soothe

Counting my blessings and giving thanks for . .

131. the Word, first and last
132. today's Word for me: "You shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to, you and your household, wherein the Lord your God has blessed you." Deuteronomy 12:7
133. early morning prayer
134. confirmations to prayers
135. knowing the God of the universe orders my steps
136. and counts the hairs on my head
137. and the hairs on the heads of those I love and am tempted to worry about
138. what care!
139. what love!
140. what rest
141. seeing Em's dreams come true through two amazing and anointed auditions this weekend
142. a husband who believes in me and our children
143. God bringing insight, forgiveness and unity out of conflict
144. sons seeking our counsel
145. being used to encourage as I spoke to precious, pioneering homeschool moms
145. freedom from lifelong lies and the wonderful truth to replace them
146. faith to keep stepping knowing He makes them sure

holy experience
