Multitude Monday: 1000 gifts…..
“…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you…”
God’s will for me……to be thankful. To be content. How often I miss the many gifts he gives me each day, because I am thinking about what I have or don’t have.
The best way to be frugal, is to be content.
I’m going to tag along on a journey many have already started long ago.
It’s called, “1000 gifts”.
Will you join me? (I don’t like going on long journeys by myself.) 🙂
Let’s look for some of the gifts the Lord is blessing us with right under our noses…
Here we go…
#1. Grace upon Grace in my life. I couldn’t start our journey without it.
My oldest is 8 (and 3/4 he would add). His days of dinosaurs strung all over the kitchen floor are almost over. Oh, how I love and will miss his “little boy” days….
#3. More dinosaurs. My “little bud” is barely two. His dinosaur days have just begun.
Which means…..for a very short period in time….I will have two “in dinosaurs”. Thankful.
#4. I was handed this note by my six-year-old little sweetie.
“Mom, wead this note. It’s fwom the doctow. I’m PWEGNANT.”
(You will be happy to know, that five minutes later……she delivered a healthy baby girl. Two minutes after that, I was babysitting for the first time. One proud grandma here.)
#5. A two-year old’s obsession with pumpkin costumes. Very BIG ones.
Hat and all.
#6. Rare smiles caught on camera. (You’d frown too, if your mom made you use your sister’s old PINK binky.)
#7. One lost tooth.
Especially one that your brother accidentally knocked loose 3 months ago, and has caused you MANY tears since. That’s one happy girl, right there.
#8. My husband’s day off. Which is today. I so love spending my day with him.
Which is also why this list must end with #8….
Now it’s YOUR turn.
- Grab a notebook and start your list there….
- Start your list in the “comments” section so we can all be encouraged…
- Start a “facebook note” and add to it each week…
- -or- just read along with us. We love you whether you make a list, or not.
Thankful for YOU,
(Oh wait….. let’s make that number #9…..)
