  1. 🙂 I love this little offering of gratefulness, Deb. You have a contagious joy that shines out through your words. And that poem about gratefulness… that is going right into my journal. Thank you for sharing that. It is amazing how we share things but never know just what will touch a heart but God does, and since you are willing to let Him lead you in this place, He is opening doors of blessing in ways you will never be able to fully realize.


  2. And I am so thankful for you in my life, Deb. You ever inspire me and give me hope.

  3. I feel the same way about my readers! They have been so kind and encouraging to me.

    Always enjoy your posts Deb! God bless
