one thousand gifts

1000 and beyond.
I will keep counting.
I need to keep doing this. I have a natural tendency to be negative and very hard on myself.
This is like my medicine.
Daily gifts. Large and small. From God, for me.

    I’m here from Ann’s. My favorite thank you from your list this week is #999… peace only God can give. (I know this peace – the kind it makes no sense to have. The kind that has nothing to do with how things are – but Whose we are. – amen)

    And it’s medicine for me too – this counting. I totally – TOTALLY – get that. And I also covet your 1000+ list. :) Thank you for this and God bless and keep you and all of yours.
