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.

ONE THOUSAND GIFTS: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

Have you read the book?  Have you started your own list of grace gifts?  I can’t think of a better day to begin.  Happy Thanksgiving!
