One Thousand Gifts: 41-50

It's been awhile. But my list continues...

#41: a meal out at Cracker Barrel thanks to a gift card from a neighbor John helped

#42: the joy that exudes my children and continually brings lightheartedness into my days

#43: that the Lord strengthens us to do all things, that we don't have to muster it up ourselves

#44: free movie rentals at the Blockbuster kiosk

#45: family that shares in our joys and our struggles

#46: Aleve...modern medicine in general that can wipe out a nasty migraine among many other


#47: watching a caterpillar turn into a butterfly with my children and being reminded of our

own transformation as believers, that, in Christ, we are a new creation.

#48: the Lord's provision for our family this week thanks to swing sets needing stained and foxes

needing trapped but more importantly thanks to a hard working husband willing to do

those jobs

#49: coupons, another way in which the Lord has provided for us

#50: when my son shouts "yay! school time!"
