A Perfect Week

Well, so much for my goal of posting more regularly. Just as I was getting off to a good start, my computer went down and now I have sporadic access...Soon, I hope, things will be back to normal and I'll have pictures and regular posting again.

That said, last week was so very nearly perfect and full to the top with amazing blessings that I think words without pictures will be OK today. Here's a list of all the things that came our way...(and I'm probably forgetting some)...

Bags and bags of clothes and shoes in my size, many still with tags. Things I needed!

Lovely papercrafting gifts from my husband

A swing set for the kids--with a fort and slide

A see-saw for the kids (from a different person)

Information about where to obtain raw goat's milk locally, as well infor about local honey, organic apple cider vinegar, and real olive oil. WOOHOO!!!

Lunch with a friend at Copeland's.

A supper date with Billy to celebrate our 9th anniversary at Outback, redeeming a gift card from Christmas

Free babysitting for said date

A trailer full of compost for the garden we're planting

A library book sale...We got around 200 children's books for 75 cents and inch

And I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

I'm not so much thrilled with the physical gifts themselves (although I'm full of gratitude for them), but more amazed at the love of my heavenly Father Who pours His blessings out on me. What an amazing week.

Wow, what exciting blessings! We had somewhat of a similar week (though perhaps a little less dramatic.) We were able to go garage-sale-ing and found some good finds. We also got compost and dirt this week! I am so excited for Spring gardening...
