We have a Blessing Bucket.
A place to put God’s blessings – big and small –
so we can remember His faithful hand in everything.
Same idea here – just in blog format.
The challenge is identify 1000 gifts in a year.
So I’m starting my list. Will you join me?
1 – birds singing sweetly all afternoon
2 – hugs from my boys
3 – a rose from my man for no reason
4 – windows open in April!
5 – not using AC for 2 days in late April
6 – an amazing sunset right out the kitchen window
7 – “Thank you, Mommy, for making dinner.”
8 – a rainy Saturday morning
9 – nothing on the schedule on a rainy Saturday morning
10 – lots of rain that we need
11 – opportunities to love people even in difficult situations
12 – opportunities to teach our kids to love others no matter what
13 – opportunities to serve at church
14 – God speaking directly to me, on a theme for 5 days in a row!
15 – opportunity for Nathan to rely on God while playing drums
16 – opportunity for Michael and David to support Nathan in prayer
17 – All the boys seeing God’s faithfulness in helping Nathan do well
18 – the chance for Nathan to play for God’s glory only
20 – precious friends who pray at a moment’s notice, and I knew they would
21 – LOUD Monday nights! (sometimes 16 middle school boys in one place can make me twitch 🙂 but deep down I really am thankful for them)
22 – God speaking during that LOUD Monday
23 – rainy days
