One Thousand Gifts: intentional gratitude

I’m reading Ann Voskamp’s book One Thousand Gifts.  If you’ve not read this one yet, you should definitely add it to your list.  Ann’s writing is so beautifully eloquent.  You can almost feel what she feels, see what she’s seeing.

One Thousand Gifts is a book of gratitude.  Ann starts making a list of big and little things for which she is grateful…gifts from the Creator.  In the midst of a life of gratitude, God’s hand is much more clearly seen.  I really love this book.

And since it’s a fresh new year, I thought it the perfect time pick this book back up, and start from the beginning again.

And the perfect time to begin learning intentional gratitude.

So I’m starting a gift list.  I will be sharing pieces of my list on Mondays and will be linking up with many others at Ann’s blog for Multitudes on Mondays.  I hope you’ll stop by then.

I’d encourage you to check out Ann’s site, A Holy Experience, as well.  She has so many wonderful resources there to help you along on the journey.  She’s even put together a January’s Joy Dare calendar to help you get started.

I can’t wait to share some of my list and I hope you’ll share some of yours with me too!
