I love reading Ann Voskamp's writing at Holy Experience. It's not a blog I try to keep up on...cause it's not the newsy kind of blog. It's one I read when I want to read slowly, savoring the beautiful words she writes and taking time to reflect. So, I just stumbled on her One Thousand Gifts community, and decided that since "giving thanks in all circumstances" is a life - target for me...I'd like to hop onboard.
I will try to post some of my gifts on Mondays, but will be numbering them in my journal. If I did my math right (I actually used to be a math major in college-ha!) then I think if I note 3-4 things a day, then I will be at 1000 within a year or so. I think that it will be easy in the beginning, but that it will get harder as the days go on and so many ongoing gifts will have been mentioned...it will be fun to see what effect being a person of intentional gratitude will have on my life.
Please join the challenge and let me know you are--if I have enough of my readers interested, maybe we could all link up. Or you could leave me your gratitude list in my comments each Monday. Get your gratitude on!!
I have been married to my best friend for 21 years. I am mom to a 15 year old daughter and a 11 year old son who keep life hopping. I also have another son, Aidan, who lives in heaven now after sharing four months with us on earth. I love to talk, love to laugh, and am a recovering diet coke addict. I love Jesus the most, and can't imagine living life without the Hope I have in Him. I have wonderful friends and family who put up with me well. I am extremely thankful for the full life I live...my Big-G-Good life.
