Every Perfect Gift

Quite some time has elapsed since I last recorded gifts. Yesterday I passed the four hundred mark. By the end of today, many more will stack themselves in line. By tomorrow, after my dear friend's wedding, they will have multiplied even more.

"Every perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of lights..."

283. Children's hands in mine as our feet feel the way up and down a creek

292. Brake warranty
294. Morning thunder storm, afternoon rain
295. Last hug from friend before she moved away
