On to my 1,000 Gifts list for this week. I still cannot believe how much this one simple act has changed my heart and my outlook on life. We are working really hard to help Sophie to have a grateful and thankful heart (though at the moment, I think her age is winning out) and I cannot wait until that day comes. That day when it clicks that all things, good and bad, are a gift from God. That all things are first sifted through His hand and then lavished on us from that same hand! This week, in particular, God was evident in even more, most likely because I specifically started praying each day that He would reveal Himself in some way. And did He ever:
632) unplanned naps
635) vacation planning
642) early morning rainfall
645) sweet smiles from Gift Girl and Blessing Boy
647) Beth Moore
650) excitement to dig into His Word
655) stories from a children's Bible speaking to my heart
657) new life
662) squash blossoms
665) homemade laundry soap
669) generosity of others
670) being humbled by God's revelation
