One Thousand Gifts (127-134)

I have been reading A Holy Experience (Ann Voskamp's blog) for a year. Every Monday Ann adds to her list of One Thousand Gifts and today I'm adding to my list too.

The grass is becoming green yet many trees are still bare.
We've had a lot of rain and when the sun comes out my soul "breathes" easier.
Finally! Our forsythias bloom and they make my eyes happy.

#127 - #134 on my list of One Thousand Gifts. I'm thankful for:

127. Spring which brings on feelings of hope

128. blooming forsythias

129. choosing the word "grace" to focus on this year. (Of course God knew I needed grace in 2011 and need to show His grace to others.) Thank you God!

130. the beginning of spring cleaning after the painter left. (Note to self: I have a lot of junk that needs tossing:)

131. seeing a hawk fly past my van and land in a tree on my way to work

132. pink polish on my toenails. Flip flops here I come!

133. the girls next door playing jump rope and hearing their laughter

134. Spring trying to overtake Winter and I think Spring is finally winning! Hooray!

The slightest hint of purple in our
church cemetery.

Turn on your speakers. Read, enjoy, and thank God for His blessings.


  1. I so wish we would get rain here. A good soaking sound so good right now! ~ I can definitely relate to the tossing out. I just went through all of my books this weekend. So hard to get rid of books, but I had more books than bookshelf space, and I'm in a minimizing state of mind these days! Thanks for sharing your list with the gratitutde community!

  2. Hello! I'm visiting from Ann's today, and just wanted to say hello! I completely agree with your number 134 - so, so glad spring is finally winning out over old man winter! :)


Thank you for stopping by and if you leave a comment...well that's just icing on the cake!
