811 - 820 of One Thousand Gifts

I have gotten a little behind in writing. I have so many things to be Thankful for . . . 
God has blessed with so many gifts!

This weekend I was reminded of "gifts" we simply forget to be thankful for . . .

The gifts of the SENSES:

# 811: Smell -


# 812: Eye sight -
 



I certainly would not want to miss out:

watching our furry ones enjoy their day

or

 on enjoying the sight of my seven year old cracking and peeling eggs for egg salad

or

see the beauty of God's creation

or

Watch God's creatures doing what they are meant to do.

# 813: Hearing -
 Listening to Beautiful Music - 
our weekend was filled with Praise and Worship music

# 814 Taste -
Is there anything as good as warm freshly baked bread with butter and jam?

# 815 - Touch -
 Including those special lil' touches . . .
puppy kisses!

There are so many Gifts God has given us!
