gratefulness …

grateful right now …
for clear, sunny skies after a week of fires, smoke & heat
answers to prayers and evidences of God's love
a beautiful bird call each morning and evening
an encouraging phone call with a friend
summer foods and ice cold drinks
 the loan from a friend of his small lens for a few months
tight hugs and cheery grins from cute nephews
good books and challenging bible verses

what are you grateful for at the moment?


  1. Thanks for the post Abbie! Your photos are just so beautiful - I love them! :)

    Gratefullness - well, I have so much to be thankful for! Here are just a few:-

    I am thankful for Who God is and what He has done - what He did on the cross, what He has done in my life and what He is continuing to do in and around me.

    I am thankful for my family - what good friends and great encouragement they are! :)

    For a great weekend away at a girl's retreat, and what the Lord taught me about Himself.

    For a cool house even though outside is so terribly hot! :)

    For a great Dad and Mum and for the 21 years that they have been married... a amazing testimony of God's goodness and grace.

    There is SO much to be thankful for!

  2. What a lovely week you've had :). I'm grateful for a relief from the hot weather today (and hopefully a thunderstorm!).

  3. Such lovely photos Abbie, and list of things to be thankful for :). Amongst many other things, and without meaning to sound too trite, we're thankful for lemonade icy poles on a hot day (do you ever really grow out of those?!). We've recently been enjoying the song "My Heart is Filled with Thankfulness" by the Gettys - so together with your post, another timely reminder to be thankful! Much love to you xo

  4. Beautiful photography Abbie! Lately I'm thankful for lots of things but especially for good health for my children of late!
