Enjoy this song by Point of Grace.
I heard this song this morning as I was reading one of my favorite blogs. (aholyexperience.com) If you haven’t had a chance to check out Ann Voskamp, I strongly urge you to check out her blog.
She has really blessed and challenged me this year to see Joy in all circumstances of life. She has written a Joy Dare -literally daring you to see the joys in life and to help you count the many blessings in your every day world.
I have recently completed her book, One Thousand Gifts and it rocked my world. I seem to look at life differently now. I see life. I count life all joy. Even in the hard stuff I have come to count my joys. She has made me ponder. She has made me slow down, which is a miracle as I am always running. She has made me love God in a new way, and see God in all circumstances…the good and the bad…the soft and the hard. She has taught me the true meaning of Eucharisteo…Grace, Thankfulness, Joy!
This is not just a book of lists of gifts. It is a book that will take you deeper, make you pause, even stop you long enough to re-read that thought and wrap your heart around it and apply the truth of it to your world. I found myself highlighting paragraphs, copy & pasting to my notes and social media.
Her photography is outstanding as well. She captures her beautiful snapshots on the farm to illustrate her blog and Joy Dares.
It is deep! It is profound! It is heart wrenching! It is One Thousand Gifts. Click on link to order your copy.
