Multitudes on Mondays 6/13/11


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.

Ann Voskamp has written a book called just that. She also has a lovely and well one-thousand-gifts_thumb3_thumbwritten 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)

One Thousand Gifts .


81.for another day
82.listening to the sound of silence
83. listening to anything, (it means I can hear)
84.sharing a wonderful card game with my kids, unexpectedly
85.laughter with friends
86.sharing memories
87.going home
88.the sweetness of summer fruits
89. Iced cold coffee on a scorching hot day!
90.Frozen yogurt on a hot summer evening.  mmmm, yum!   (Twice in the last week)

I am so excited, because I finally found her book last week and I purchased it.  WOW!  It is beautiful written, she has such a way with words and the imagery that she conveys is mind boggling to me.  Not sure how she does it, but her talent for writing is impressive to say the least.  Definitely a God-given talent.  I can only digest so much at a given time, so I am reading this book slowly and with intention.  I am trying to savor the nuggets of wisdom written on the pages.

Luke 11:13“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!””

I really like your list. I'm reading the book and joined Multitudes on Monday for the first time a couple weeks ago.
