One thousand gifts and still counting (1019-1039)

1019. Things that disappear.
1020. Friends who pray boldly.
1021. Colorful envelopes in my mailbox and the birthday wishes tucked inside.
1022. Coffee with a neighbor.
1023. Rainy days.
1024. Hugs from a friend in an aisle at the grocery store.
1025. Fall.
1026. Sweaters and socks.
1027. Verses in my inbox.
1028. An airplane swooping low over treelines and farm fields.
1029. A Saturday afternoon nap on the couch ...
1030. with windows open ...
1031. and kids playing quietly.
1032. Running barefoot in the grass--fast!
1033. Discovering how good 1/2 and 1/2 is in coffee. Enjoying to the last drop.
1034. Kisses for kisses. The chocolate kind to the kid kind.
1035. A long sleeve shirt.
1036. Long shadows.
1037. Celebrating 70 years. Happy birthday, Anita!
1038. Growing pains, still.
1039. Ends worth grieving.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Jesus.
