1000 Gifts Sunday

Continuing thanks for all the good things in my life...all of the things for which I need help, an opportunity to lean on Him...all of the unexpected, messy, wonderful, hard, glorious things.  And continuing thanks to Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience for the challenge.  It has made my life more joyful, more centered.  I hope these simple exercises inspire you to be more aware of your own beautiful things.
