'Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.' Colossians 4:2
I am not content. I am humbled. Blessed. Awed. Undeserving. Indebted. Convicted.
I had the honor to hear Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts, speak this past weekend. I was inspired by her words. Inspired to live for the purpose I was created...to glorify Him, to know Him, to worship Him, to THANK Him.
I am in process of reading the book and I hang on every word Ann writes-her words are powerful and convicting. Everything I have has come from Him. All that I don't have is by His choice. I am thankful. Truly thankful. Because of what He has done for me, I am joining with others in listing my one thousand gifts. Feel free to join in here, on your own blog, on paper, or in your heart.
The list begins...
#1 the smell of the orange on my hands that I just peeled for my hubby
#2 the sound of voices coming from the shower where 2 of my favorite boys are getting clean from the day
#3 the uneven pitter-patter of my 4 year-old's feet as he comes to give mama a kiss
#4 hot water
#5 running water, the fact that I have water at all
#6 my wiggly 11 month-old when I try to put on his diaper
#7 our Soldiers and their families who sacrifice all for us
#8 the new wireless printer in my room (the inspiration for me to clean out a home for it)
#9 a little shack in the woods
#10 our second home on wheels
What are you thankful for today?
We are traveling in the home on wheels for the weekend, enjoying some time with the hubby's side of the family--be back Monday!
