My View and 1000 Gifts!

 The view from my kitchen this morning. What a glorious 
testament to God and His fingerprint on creation.

I totally did not link up yesterday on A Holy Experience for Multitude Mondays, and the link is still open, so going to do it instead today.

This last week has had me reflecting a lot. On life, friends, family, choices made and my faith. With so many things happening around the world that could bring a person down, like the tragedy's in Japan, war in Libya, etc I have been especially thoughtful this week of what I am grateful for. Here are a few more of my 1000 gifts!

21. Working out before the family awakens - a time to rejuvenate and prepare my body for the day

22. Ladies Bible Study - studying Beth Moore and learning so much through the life of David with a wonderful group of women

23.Long time friends, who despite separating miles, still impact me, some I met over 20 years ago

24. the beauty in snow covered evergreen trees

25. beauty in an expectant sister, who will be a first time mom

26. hearing a knock knock joke from my four year old and watching her double over in laughter because she thinks she is so funny (she really is!)

27. hearing my 2.5 yr old singing Bible Songs (current favorite is Jesus Loves Me and I'm In The Lord's Army)

28. the smell of cookies in the oven

29. reading a book under a warm quilt and my puppy laying in my lap

30. Being reminded that He is my Strength (Philippians 4:13)

If you would like to join Ann at A Holy Experience for Multitude Mondays, you can link up throughout this week here.

And, if you have not had the chance to read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, I highly recommend it!

Be Blessed Today and Always!


  1. Wow!!!!! I haven't heard "I'm in the Lord's Army" since I was a little kid in a little house church DVBS! I can still hear that Dutch lady singing that out, playing it on the old piano, and us marching around the basement singing at the top of our lungs!!! Now I know I'm really old!!!

    Your list was precious and I'm so glad I stopped by today. It's never too late to praise the Lord!
