If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Counting One Thousand Gifts

In my deliberate effort to be more aware of God in my life, here is a continuation of the list of Blessings, Gifts, & God moments in my life this past week:

11. A wonderful service yesterday with my husband reminding us that God's mercies are new every morning.

12. God with me in the night. I've had a cold or flu or something this past week and Saturday night I couldn't sleep at all. At one point I got up and decided to read my Bible and God led me to Lamentations and the same verse that my husband used Sunday morning in his sermon that I mentioned above. That verse seems to be coming up in my life a lot recently. No doubt it's a God thing.

13. Wonderful Friends. A friend gave me a recipe for a hot toddy to try for my congestion. I have to say it wasn't very tasty (I've had worse though) but it seemed to help. I really slept last night. Thanks Karen. (I'll try to post it later this week for those of you who may be interested.)

14. Fellowship. Yesterday was "Homecoming" at our church and after service we had dinner. Let me tell you we have some wonderful cooks at our church (both men and women) and lunch was great. But not just the food, the fellowship with each other was too. God has blessed us richly.


  1. A lot to be thankful for. I love when the church gets together and cooks.

  2. What a wonderful list. Hope you get to feeling better. We have a small church but the fellowship is wonderful! Such a blessing!
    until next time... nel

  3. Sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for. Thanksgiving has literally changed my life. I noticed that when I thank God for the things He has done, I'm so much happier. God is so good!

  4. I love the food and fellowship at church homecomings.

    I pray your having a wonderful week.

  5. I too want to list things that I'm thankful for....be more aware if His blessings.....I'm reading this book too!

    Happy weekend,

  6. Hope you're feeling better!!
