Day 6~ 3 Gifts in government
So okay this one isn't an easy one for me at all as I am truly unhappy with our government. So it is funny though as my daughter recently told me I needed to find something happy about it so this should make her smile as I search out three happy things in my government. 
1) It is set up as a Democracy! 
2) It is "We the people......."
3) The Constitution that is set to protect "We the people....."
Not sure that is what is meant by this one...But I'm going with this. 
What are your three gifts in government?

Day 7~ 3 Gifts from your window
1) Most defiantly the rain that has come down in cats and dogs today! I had to run from car to work door. But am so grateful I could watch the rain from the warmth of an indoor window and I didn't have to work outside in it. 
2) Not that you can see wind ....but the results of the wind blowing in the rain. The trees waving and the leafs blowing about and whirling around on the ground in the glistening rain of the down pour. As the clouds glide swiftly across the gray sky line.
3) The cars and buildings across the lot into the parking lot of my window that views a large green space into a neighboring parking lot and the view of other apartments. Which your wondering what is the blessing; it is that I can see across the way with the eyes the Lord has blessed me with. Thank you Jesus!
