One Thousand Gifts (part 9)

Inspired by Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts, I've been making my own list of everyday gifts. God gifts. Starting at one and continuing to 1,000 here is my journey of gratitude. With Spring in our midst the earth is abundant with His beauty! I see it everywhere and wish I could capture it all!


95. Cupboards and fridge full of good food after trip to grocery store


96. 70 degrees and sunny!


97. pansies to plant



98-101. slippery slugs, Winter fireflies, field guides and blowing bubbles









102. squiggly wriggly writhing earthworms







103. flip-flops with newly painted toes


104. evening walk with family


105. daughter's goodnight "Nigh-nigh!"


106. new coffee mug and joy of winning it thanks to Heather at Mattern Family's Storybook Adventures!


107. little spider hiding in school book turned pet for a day


108. page-turner books that inspire


109. coffee, encouragement and laughter with friends


110. son saying prayer for ambulance rushing past


111-118. day at the park: statues, formal gardens, peacocks, poly wogs, chickens and bird's nest and blue skies













119. laughing so hard that fat happy tears come rolling down


120. encouraging heartfelt words from dear friend


121. new friends


122. MOPS meeting: teacups, tea cakes and words of encouragement


123. iced coffee on sunny day



...more to come

  6. They are given to the Christian at the discretion of God. Non-believers do not have "Spiritual Gifts". They may have great talents, but they are not genuine "Spiritual Gifts".stuffed bears

  8. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
