Ann Voskamp wrote the best-seller “1000 gifts.” She spoke of the key to joy and experiencing God starts with thankfulness. She started a pattern of writing down 1,000 things she could give thanks for, and as she observed this discipline, change occurred in her heart. Trust in our Good Father God was strengthened. Her theme is Eucharisteo a greek word that means to give thanks, or be thankful, and part of the word charis means grace. So here I start, reflecting on the good gifts God puts in my life, to start a new pattern of seeing. Nailing in the trust in God’s goodness, replacing doubt, anger, disillusionment. Mending. Thanks to my husband David for letting me use his photo. He captures beauty daily as he is out and about.
