Multitude Monday

holy experience
April 29, 2010.  That's the date I set as the goal for giving thanks for 1,000 gifts.  I'm a little behind ;)  I need to pick up the pace in order to meet that goal but I don't want to rush through it just to get to 1,000.  I want to arrive at 1,000 with a changed, more appreciative heart, a grateful spirit and the ability to see God's hand more clearly in my days.

Here are some things I was thankful for this week:

  • 138. Valentine's Dinner at church

  • 137. Taking my eight year old to my alma mater for a basketball game- just the 2 of us!

  • 136. Harlem Globetrotters with the family and some friends

  • 135. Coffee with friends

  • 133. Winter recess

  • 132. One on one time with my 5 year old - even if it is at 2 am

  • 131. Access to quality medical care

  • 130. He carried the cross for my shame

  • 129. Circumstances that force me to forgo the schedule and do what is right in front on me in the moment

  • 126. 125 Gifts :)

  • 125. Living Room Soccer Tournament

  • 123. My 5 year old's TO DO list

  • 122. My 8 year old's TO DO list

  • 121. Snow Days

  • 120. Antibiotics

  • 119. Access to good medical care

  • You can find my running list of 1,000 gifts in my sidebar and ready why I got started here.

I love this idea of writing out things to be thankful for. There are so many things for us to be grateful for in this life, and it's good to sit back and reflect on even the small things.

You are right...counting our gifts does change our heart.
Winter recess and access to quality health care...great gifts.
Grace to you

Oh...the Harlem Globetrotters...really! We live in a rural area, so we don't see many big time players here, and oh how my boys would have loved to see them live:)Such a wonderful list Natalie. I am especially touched by #130... Thank you so much for all the encouraging words you have sent to my little corner of cyber space.
