One Thousand Gifts

I have been reading this book for quite some time, but I haven't really been listing my thanks physically. They have just been in my thoughts and mind. Savoring them, my thanksgivings.

I decided it was tie to share them from time to time. We have become a society of selfishness and really a large group of ungrateful creations. So... I begin chronically my inner thoughts on thanks with you. Yes, it's Tuesday, but I'm making up for Monday.

1) Photos that capture the very essence of my life. The grins, the tears, and the adventures that God has planned for us.

2) Reading the book of Romans and feeling the convictions of "Marks of a True Christian."

3) Logan and his death defying scream. He is human; he is alive; he is my son; he is a bearer of God's image.

4) Luk's love. Sure, he's four and can be temper tantrum addict, but his love is true. It is genuine.

5) Reson's smell. It is his presence in my life everyday.

Loved your list today, loved it even more that you decided to post it for us to read! You are right -- we have become ungrateful creations. But reading these lists and making my own has changed my heart so much. Listing them seems to make them so much more real. Keep it up!!!

Thank you, Cora! Yes, it does seem more real when they are listed. The time to acknowledge them is such a pleasure.
