holy experience

Even on the darkest days, reasons can be found to praise.

So I’m branching out and joining bloggers who have committed to finding 1000 Gifts of Gratitude!

Every Monday I will list a multitude of things I am thankful for, and I won’t stop until I reach 1000 gifts!

Grab a notebook and start your own list! Share them here if you can!

Here I go!

1. Monday night football with Todd and Tim

2. Olivia blowing bubbles next to me

3. A unit of lesson plans on the book The Outsiders being shared with me by a fellow teacher

4. Hot tea on a sore throat

5. My dishwasher

6. Old friends

7. Candles

8. Thank you notes so I can say “thank you” to so many who are needing to hear from me in a special way for all they do to make my life easier

9. Ice cream on a cold night

10. The peace that surpasses anything I can understand when I think of Nick and Adrienne safe in the arms of God

11. The smile I can feel warming my face when I think of Nick, and the strength God has somehow given me to keep pressing on

12. Warm blankets

13. My Bible

I Thess. 5:18

“…..give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Next Monday I’ll share a multitude more!
