one thousand gifts {2841-2873}

“It is a great wrong to God when we bury His mercies in the grave of unthankfulness.”
{Charles H. Spurgeon}

God was so good this past week to let me do so many things I love, surround me with so many people I love, and let me share His love. Music. Cooking. Friends. Much Work. Laughing. Little Cousins. Serving. Old People.

All is grace.

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
