~ 100th Post ~

Hello ~ blog friends, this is my 100th post since I first began this wonderful space. I am very thankful for the opportunity to have something to share and friends who read it. In honor of this special occasion, I've decided to join in something absolutely wonderful that my friends at CWO have just introduced. Its called "One Thousand Gifts." The lovely Ann at Holy Experience, has started something simply wonderful by making a list of the one thousand gifts she receives. You must read the full essay in order to fully understand. The most significant thing about this list, is the fact that this is a list of gratitude not of wants. We are so quick to desire something but fail to take time to enjoy what we have at the moment. I truly appreciate Ann's challenge to take time to "smell the roses" and give glory to whom it is due ~ my Lord. So, I shall begin my own list below and you will be able to keep up with my list and others by accessing the link in my sidebar. If you choose to join us, please leave me a comment so that I may visit your list too and give thanks with you for the blessings we have been honored to receive.
