One Thousand Gifts -3

It's Monday again! (Well, it's actually Sunday evening, but we have a busy couple of days so I'm preparing an automatic post for Monday.)

I received Ann's book in the mail from a dear Blogging friend last week! I am in the middle of another book, but I cracked it open last night and was quickly taken.

So, this book begins my list for the week.

42. One Thousand Gifts!!
43. Our new pastor and his family.
44. Friends who "get" you and are okay to just pray w/out needing all the details.
45. Birds nests
46. New journals. (the smell and cracking sound before they are broken in.)
47. Emma realizing today God is answering a prayer she's been praying all school year.
48. Two precious nieces that talk my ear off on the phone.
48. Hershey's Caramel creamer (international delight)
49. Monogrammed items
50. God's gift at 3:00 AM on March 20. Will never forget it. NEVER.EVER.
51. Nancy Drew
52. Bev Brandon- I'm praying one day we can worship in the same church. She oozes God.

I pray that this week, you realize how much our God loves you. You are so precious to him.

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Great list! Nancy Drew books??? I loved them as a young girl. Read them all, still have a few of them. They are classics.

Hope you are doing well.

Well, I cried when I read #52 and what you wrote. Oh my! We will worship at His Feet together for all Eternity!

new pastors and new journals and answered prayer... exciting stuff!!!!

My daughter enjoys reading the Nancy Drew books and she loved the movie too. :)

Keep up the counting!

Bird's nests!!! Nothing more exciting than finding one, especially when they are built right under your nost without you knowing it!

And I, too, grew up with Nancy Drew. Read them so many times that she may as well have been my sister!!!!

I’m here from Ann’s today

And I’m going off your list to choose my favorite – because this “I pray that this week, you realize how much our God loves you. You are so precious to him.” – that was just special – and hit home.

God Bless and Keep you and all of yours.

Hi! I'm stopping by from Ann's. I also love that you included Nancy Drew in your list. Her mystery stories were among my favorite books as a child!
