""Blessings Strengthen life and feed life just as water does." Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

This blog is a digital blessing bowl, a place to record the small blessings that are often missed or forgotten but which make life holy. Feel free to add your own blessings to my blessing bowl. Or perhaps you'll be encouraged to start your own.

The sun, the rain, and the appleseed

Oh, the Lord's been good to me.
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, the rain and the appleseed;
Oh, the Lord's been good to me. 

Yesterday we had "happy chaos" as four of my dad's great-grandchildren (three of my grandchildren and one of my sister's) visited and shared lunch with us. 
It had rained hard the night before but the sun was shining and the little ones were able to go outside and explore, collecting rocks in the cuffs of their pants and finding tree limbs to use as fishing poles.  At lunch my 3 year old grandson sang the Johnny Appleseed blessing for us.  He blessed us with the song and they all blessed us with their presence.  The Lord has given us the things we need this week, as he always does.  Yes, "The Lord's been good to me."
