Merci beaucoup, mon Dieu

"Let integrity stand guard as I wait for you."
Psalm 25:21

Counting blessings

292 - first night of Advent

293 - pomanders

294 - flour covered fingers

295 - when the house smells like pie

296 - the ridiculously extravagant birthday cake from our favorite French bakery that my family blesses me with every year

297 - the heavens declare...

holy experience

Joining Ann today

Happy Birthday, Jodi.

I love your Advent wreath.

I love Advent.

(and I sent you an email after you commented on my post , and then realized that your address isn't given with your name. oh brother. I want you to know that I am touched when my writing means something to people, something re their story. I don't want it just to be about me , you know. so thank you for getting me, and for giving me a piece of your heart too. )
