A month of gratitude::day nine...

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psalm 107:1 ESV

...for the Compassion team in Ecuador and Ann's beautiful words - piercing our hearts while feeding our souls with "wild grace" 
...for just enough of whatever I needed for a morning's devotions outside with my camera 
...for watching the sunrise from my son-crafted bench seat under the live oak tree
...for love notes from friends
...for vanilla bean coffee in my "Rise N' Shine" mug 
...for hummingbirds, caterpillars, and mockingbirds
...for heating pads, pain meds and prayer
