Fuzzy brain

I really hope their is nothing goofy in this posting, but I need to keep doing this. My brain has been off all day long. I think it's just me getting used to not sleeping normally, which is a huge shift for me. I've always been a very sound sleeper. So, if there is something off, chalk it up to exhausted pregnancy brain ;). It's been a long, busy day!

3 gifts ugly beautiful:
~Legs swelling and veins starting to show (gift of our child).
~An exhausting week, full of His grace.
~Pain to bring healing to my husbands knee.

3 gifts in dirt:
~ Daisies growing up out of it.
~Strong noble trees.
~A twilight walk along some.

A gift in a sign:
An old sign still painted on the brick of a building.

A gift in a smile: Smiles of my co-workers.

A gift in a snack: Fresh out of the oven soft biscuits shared with my husband.

3 gifts found in Christ:
~ The steadfast love of the Lord.
~His unending faithfulness.
~His strength in my weakness.

Relaxing weekend

Well, life, as normal right now has been very tiring. I have been keeping track of gifts on and off and I will need to catch up with them on here.
A couple of weeks ago I went away with my teen girls to a family of the church's camp. I wrote down a few gifts:
~Birds singing early in the morning.
~Peaceful lake.
~That I could come (work schedule).
~The warmth of summer!
~Cinnamon buns one of the girls made while I read God's Word.
~Laughter and cheers to a game of dutch blitz as I fall asleep.
~ "Your baby is the size of an avocado right? I love avocados. Not that I want to eat your baby."
~Rest for my feet and legs.
~My head feeling mostly normal after a week of headaches.
~The generosity of friends to share their camp so we can have this weekend.
~ Fresh buds blooming.
~ French pressed coffee.
