Week of Lists: Things that leave me in awe.

Or a few of my favorite things...nothing like things that leave you in wonder.

Our dad took this photo of a daisy-pretty ridiculously detailed...
1. Squirrels on electric cable.  Talk about balance.
2. The way my husband loves me.
3. The petals on a peony. Or any flower for that matter.
4. The way of a storm.
5. How a beautiful flower turns into an apple, peach, pear, etc.
6. How a baby starts out as two people. Pick wisely.
7. Jesus and what He stood for (See #10)
8. Fields of grass/straw/mustard seed. Rolling hills.
9. How beauty always trumps pain.
10. Stories of forgiveness/redemption.
11. The color turquoise. And yellow. And stripes...oh yes, stripes.
12. How eternity is built into the soul of every person.
13.  Oak trees. In a field.
14. Crying with a friend.
15. Grace.
16. The joy my sister has.
17. My friends-totally unconditional.
18. The love of my parents.
19. 60 second nail polish.
20. Logistics.
21. Books you can't put down.
22. People's stories.
23. Movies like Pollyanna, Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea and Pride & Prejudice

Best verses to sum this up: Psalm 139:1-6

1 You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely. 5 You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,    too lofty for me to attain.

What things totally move you?  Make you wonder?  It is kind of like the "glad game."


  1. That picture-WOW! How cool is our God!! Also, I love how you worded #6. :)

  2. I love your list -- some of which are the little things that we, so often, forget to stop and remember to love and are blessed by.

    P.S. Can we have a girls Pollyanna and Anne of Green Gables day?


Thanks for stopping by! xoxo, A momma and her baby (babies!)
