One Thousand Gifts

Photo by Connie

I am reading a new book which is challenging me to abandon myself to the God who desires to overflow my life with joy.

Can I intentionally embrace a lifestyle of gratitude, to leave the parched ground of pain, fear and uncertainties? Will I slow down and catch God in the moment? I think this book could be life changing.

The birch tree, in the photo above, symbolizes my desire to tear off a piece of bark and write on it my journey through this book.  I will not do it on the paper thin bark; I will do it here. While it is often difficult to match a photo with a thought, I will see what happens in the days and weeks ahead.

I am accepting the challenge to find one thousand gifts - a thousand blessings which will awaken the joy I have in God; for I know that the joy of the Lord is my strength.
