357 Colors


Such great thoughts for today…

Originally posted on Poems From Psalms And Nature:


Somewhere along the line, as I was re-copying blessings from my gratitude journal last year, I began noting new blessings this year.  I bought a lilac-colored  journal at Target, and the cover says, “He is the Light of the World.”

So on my way to one thousand, inspired by Ann Voskamp and others, here are a few new blessings:

357. Colors

358. The way colors work together

361. Pastel-colored sunrise

364. Dusting of snow on fields

Endlessly beautiful . . .

Luci Shaw says, “I have vowed never to cut myself off from beauty” (p. 23; Breath for the Bones: Art, Imagination, and Spirit; 2007, Thomas Nelson).

And now I will add a new blessing, so I have the reference when I reread another time:

365.  John 8:12a (KJV) “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world . . .”

    • Betsy, first of all, thank you! BUT this seems to appear on the page of last thing I posted which was a re-post from another blogger I follow. So did you mean for “my” whole blog, or do you refer to the repost which does not belong to me? I just want to be sure I am not getting credit for something I didn’t do.

      • Betsy Bruce Henning says:

        No, no, no — I mean you and your blog. Even the reposts speak of your heart, and that’s what I mean! Lots of people will benefit from what you write and what you share! Really!

      • Ok, Betsy, Thank you so much. I will work on answering the questions asap. I sure hope you are able to come to Portland next Jan. In the meantime, I’m glad we are friends in other ways, too.

        Hugs, RuthAnn

      • I sure plan on coming…it’s pretty important to me!

  3. Dear RuthAnn, Thank you so very much for all of your encouragement. Blessings, Ellen
