One Thousand Gifts

"The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving." Ps. 28:7

97. Easter:

98. - tears coursing down cheeks as we listen to the words of a loving Savior preparing to give His life for ours

99. - joy overflowing as we hear the story told again - the story of love and redemption

100. - little girls in white dresses dancing to the soul-filling words: "Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun, at the trumpet call."

101 - one hundred fifty one people surrendering their hearts to Christ - receiving the priceless gift of new life on this resurrection day.

102. - my Christmas cactus heavy with gorgeous magenta flowers. It has always preferred to bloom at Easter rather than Christmas. I can understand that.

103. - the live oak trees shedding their old leaves, littering the lawn with the old and immediately putting out new fresh new growth - a picture of new life in Jesus.

104. - my husband surprising my Mom and Dad by buying lawn food and fertilizing their lawn for them

105. - a letter from a great-grandson to his great-grandfather just to say he loves him and is praying he will feel better soon.

106. - lavish love and appreciation from my parents for the little things we do for them.

107. - a phone call from our daughter just because she wanted to hear our voices

108. - my very old rose bush, looking like it has seen better days, still producing the most beautifully fragrant roses I have ever smelled. Heavenly.

109. - sharing a walk, conversation and laughter with good neighbors

110. - the amazing grace of God that covers my life, in spite of my failings

I want to add a little apology for not being around much this past week or so. We have been busy with our friend from England. We've had a wonderful time showing off this wonderful place we call home, but it has left me little time for anything else. She will be returning home tomorrow - and I promise to get caught up as quickly as I can.

More lovely gifts, Linda. I am lookign forward to hearign how the visit has gone! Huddersfield is about 3 hours away from me. Nowhere here is very far! I have been there a couple of times over the years.

I don't have one right now, but every Christmas cactus I've ever had bloomed at Easter instead. As you said, it's understandable!

If I had your gift of words, I would write a devotional based on my Mostly Wordless Wednesday pictures today. Maybe you can do it, eh??? :-)

I give praise with your for His gifts, Linda...
You described them so well, I could *see* them, friend...
Isn't praise invigorating?
