Sweet pictures Jodi! I love the one of the shadows; I've always loved shadows. Oh, and good faith. Good faith comes few and far between these days.
I'm watching Lord of the Rings for the first time EVER! and I'm loving it. L O V I N G it! JoAnn said something about what a big fan you are and...how could I not have seen those movies and follow your blog... ;)

JoAnn said...

Alexis hasn't seen them! Don't worry, I introduced her. I mean, she should probably read the books first. DOH! Why didn't I think of that!?!?!

Anyway, your list is a breath of fresh air in a house full of cleaning products and stress. Boo to stress. I think I'll have to start writing my list again, my perspective is wonky.

Jodi said...

Are you watching the extended version? It's the best.

Amy Danielle said...

This was read by my while doing spelling lessons with my boys. It brought a smile and a wisp of inspiration to looks for the good, the lovely that is truly all around my, if I have eyes to see it.

Amy Danielle said...

I meant *me*, not *my*.

I love morning glories! In the house I grew up in, the backyard was made entirely of cement - ground, walls - with a metal door.

However, the house next to us had a dirt yard and their morning glories would find their way through a crack in the cement wall - and sometimes over the wall. Hence, they were the first flowers I ever knew existed in real life.

When I was little, I would pick them and try to make them live in Dixie cups ... but, alas! They met their end. Eventually I learned the reason they're called "morning glories" and to appreciate seeing them around the cement. :^)

Nancy said...

Hooray for #210! And what joy, seeing your morning glories first thing this morning. Thought I was the only person left on the planet who hadn't seen LOTR--all because I haven't read the books yet either (and legalistic habits are so hard to shake).

Leslie said...

Love your list of blessings this morning. Light beckoning through an open door, shadow kisses, morning glories. All things lovely.

:) Have enjoyed your gifts this day, thank you for sharing :)

Rayanne said...

There is something so sweet to being thankful. The words on your thankful post are powerful. Gentle, yet strong.
You bless me dear friend!

Alexis Hallum said...

So glad you like snail mail...!

Yes, it was the extended version. I'm thinking I'm going to read the books first and then finish the last two. It's always better that way!

Jodi said...

Watch the movies, Alexis, watch the movies! I think it will make the books twice as good!

Jodi said...

Rosie, morning glorys were the first flower i ever fell in love with as a child.

amy said...

the light,
how I needed a reminder of the light today... of all kinds of light.

Thank you jodi, your list is perfect.

Cheryl said...

Your counting blessing posts always remind me to count mine. Beautiful photos, as ever. Refreshing to see the honesty box. Looks like it has a loose top, so you can even sort out your own change. Bless those people.

joanny said...

Jodi

Your words, and photos, express so well gratitude, graceful and gracious thoughts, words, and deeds. Beautiful moments you shared with us.

Cheers,
Joanny

That "good faith" part looked familiar. Then I realised it reminds me of one of my favourite second-hand bookshops. They reside in a cellar, and in the corridor updoors they set out boxes of books that come at 5 CZK a piece (the lowest price). You can either take them down to the cashier, or pay to a money box in the corridor. Among other things, I found two wonderful 1950s American cookbooks there. And I paid to the money box.
Things like that are certainly blessings.
