One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

My lovely sister gave me this wonderful book.  I'm a few chapters into it, and I love it!  Focusing on being thankful is something the Lord had already been speaking to me about.  Then, He had her bless me with this book to speed my journey along.

I think it is a well-written book.  Sort of a mixture of prose and poetry.  Stream of consciousness.  Pictures made of words.  Mrs. Voskamp's style draws you in and tempts you to wax poetic with your own attempts in writing down your personal gifts from God.  I already have close to 100 written down, and I just started yesterday.  I've noticed my descriptions getting more flowery in keeping with her modeling.  Nowhere near as good as hers, mind you.  But, fun for me!

Last year was a journey to overcome anxiety.  This year I want to fall clear over into full trust and thankfulness.

And,  JOY!!!

I know progress is being made.  Wait for it...
