One Thousand Gifts



Looking through the prism of gratitude at the blessings that flow from the Father's heart and hands:

133 - prayer
134 - a little bird teetering on the edge of the birdbath, trying to get a drink
135 - patches of lovely pink Evening Primrose scattered in green fields
136 - phone calls from family
137 - answered prayer
138 - walking to a chorus of birdsong
139 - the old oaks faithfully putting out new leaves
140 - hugs
141 - a good book
142 - sitting around the table with Mom and Dad - good coffee and conversation
143 - the enormous full moon - the heavens declare His glory
144 - seeing God's mercy and grace in the hard places
145 - pictures - preserving precious moments
146 - knitting
147 - a surprise in the mail
148 - the abundance of His provision
149 - the smell of Mountain Laurel filling the air
150 - little donkey waiting for a treat


Blessings,
Linda
