One Thousand Gifts – My List starts now

Oh how simple is the obvious? To get closer to God you must practice thankfulness… for the small things… for the hard things… for the good things… for everything… Each day write down five things that you are thankful for until you hit 1000 items. Discipline your first thoughts every day to be on thankfulness.


1 Thessalonians 5:18

in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Here’s my One Thousand Gift list:

1. My children’s sweet laughter.

2. My endless creativity.

3. Finding a four leaf clover on a warm summer day.

4. Watching a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis.

5. The sweet smell of doughnuts baking in an old fashioned bakery (thank you Deerfield’s Bakery!!!)

You will find my list under the idea sheets menu at this blog… why don’t you go there to be inspired to create yours? What do you have to lose?  More importantly what do you have to gain?

Feeling such peace when I am truly truly thankful for what God has given to me… hoping you can find the same peace too!
