I have been journaling for nearly thirty years. Ever since my first lined notebook with the spray of pink roses across the creamy cloth cover that I received for my birthday as a little girl. Since that time my family and friends have known that a new journal is always a favorable gift for me. Last year one dear friend, who usually blesses me with journals decided to give me a book (also a guaranteed favorite) instead. That book was One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. She said I would enjoy it, she was sure. She was right.
Now, I am a person who loves to make lists. I admit it. I wholeheartedly enjoy lists of all varieties. So when I finished reading One Thousand Gifts I was inspired to create my own list of one thousand blessings. Today I will enter blessing number one thousand, three hundred sixty-five… and counting.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are blessed by this video. You should really read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp who blogs over at A Holy Experience. It is a very worthy book. You will enjoy it, I’m sure. And her blog… so lovely.
