Multitudes on Monday

 H appy Monday ya’ll.  


Today I am sharing my list for  “One Thousand Gifts”, it is where you come up with 1000 things that your are thankful for (gifts in your life).  It is to help you better recognize just all the little blessings we have each day that we take for granted.

DSC_1784 Ann Voskamp has written a book called just that.  She also has a lovely and well written blog “A Holy Experience” if you aren’t reading you are missing it folks.  I love reading her blog, many hours have been  spent hours there. And she is the most delightful person to listen too.  (No, I haven’t met her personally, but I have watched via vblog her series on the book)

Hi Cindy:

Happy anniversary! I recently started my own list of 1000 gifts and I've started reading the book. It's hard to put down.

I enjoyed reading your blessings.

It's me again...I started my list of 1000 a few weeks ago and it has been such a blessing to me. I am half way through her book and her thoughts on grace are life changing. I love your quote on the side bar about a husband having to seek Jesus to find you...beautiful thought.
