1000 gifts, week IV

Week 4 of the Joy Dare. Today I will be picking up where I left off last week.

Thankful for:

63. Bible studies meant just for me
64. giant chocolate chip cookies that the boy and I couldn't finish

65. and big messy smiles as a result

66. long naps that ease away aches and pains
67. fun with Turbo Tax
68. "Grace and Mercy" found only in Christ
69. a baby still sleeping at 8:30 AM
70. watching him discover

71. breakfast for dinner ... and then for breakfast the next day
72. the ability to trust in God's plan
73. "Not right now and not that way" as an answer to my prayers
74. a new Bible
75. a smart kid who only eats in the high chair

76. lunch dates with my mom
77. grandparents who spoil the boy
78. a student who teaches me about grace
79. mild days on an empty playground

80. smiles reserved only for me
81. lazy days

82. receiving kisses from the boy when I ask for them
83. re-institution of date nights (oh, how I missed them!)
84. messes that are fun to make and easy to clean up (and dogs that are willing to do the dirty work sometimes)

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
