One Thousand Gifts … Not Gifts I Want, But Gifts I Have


I’ve been inspired.

Through the blog of my friend Alyssa, I sovereignly “stumbled” upon another blog of a woman name Ann Voskamp, and a new journey upon which I am about to embark.

On her blog, Ann has been listing gifts from God that she sees in her life.
She states:

” I am one waking from slumber … from the stupor of indifference and ignorance. Too often I miss Him, oblivious, blind. I don’t see all the good things that He is giving me, gracing me with, brushing my life with.”

I am one who can completely relate. In a culture where I have so much.. too much, I miss so much. Regretfully my eyes are so clouded by self that the grace of God goes unnoticed hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second.

And so, this is the start of an effort to refocus my vision and to give thanks for the evidences of grace that are currently being missed.
Psalm 118:28
“You are my God, and I will give thanks to you..”

1) A comfy hotel room to rest in while my husband is at work.

2) The jolting of my laptop brought about by kicks coming from inside my tummy.

3) The new pink journal that awaits the listing of many more gifts.

4) The heat that is keeping me warm as it rains outside.

5) An ultrasound picture that shows my little guys’ face, and represents the comforting news that he was okay.

I’ve Returned

And so, I’m back.

Life is very different than it was at the time of my last post.
I am sitting here trying to balance my laptop as my son kicks from inside my tummy occasionally jolting it from its position.

I don’t exactly know why I’m back. Maybe for myself. Possibly for you.
Either way … here I am.
