One Thousand Gifts

Thanks to God

“Thanks for prayers that thou has answered, Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered, Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure, Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure, Thanks for love beyond compare!”

J. A. Hultman

28. The “super-charged” atmosphere in church as we began to sing praises to the King of Kings. (“The presence of the Lord is here. I feel it in the atmosphere.”

29. Christmas lights celebrating the birth of the Light of the world.

30. Wearing the simple little bracelet made by unknown hands in Uganda – the gift we received for the gift we were honored to give.

31. Discovering joy in giving rather than receiving this Christmas. I, who imagined Christmas without gifts, would seem empty.

32. The love and warmth of a home filled to bursting with four generations of family.

33. Prayers of thanksgiving from my elderly father (the Great Grandfather) and my young grandson. The priceless legacy passed from one generation to another.

34. Children and grownups gathered around the table playing games and sharing laughter.

35. Taking a walk with the whole family – the boys, Dads and Grandpa tossing a football as we made our way down the road; the little girls running and jumping over rocks and ditches; the girls, Moms, Aunt and Grandma, talking and calling out warnings (“Car coming – move over! Don’t jump in the puddles girls!”); our oldest grand-daughter patiently teaching the new puppy how to walk with a leash; my elderly parents walking slowly behind – hand in hand.

36. Good conversation- what a blessing these amazing adults are. Lord how You have given grace.

39. Answered prayer for our grandson – completely recovered from his appendectomy.

40. The hugs and kisses as we left to make the long ride home. The memory of two huge hugs from my twelve year old grandson. I am so thankful he isn’t too grownup to give Grandma tender hugs.

41. A safe trip home – filling the hours talking over the wonderful time we had.

42. A new year – new beginnings. Your mercies are new every morning Father. Such grace.

43. A walk with our neighbors under a brilliant blue sky – the air crisp and clear.

44. Celebrating our little granddaughter’s fifth birthday. Five!! The years go by too quickly.

45.A quiet evening – sitting in my little corner on the couch, sipping tea, reading words that inspire and lift my spirit (thank you Ann).

That's a wonderful old Swedish song at the beginning - my FIL used to sing it in Swedish. I love it.

I love your blessings - 1000 is quite a goal!
