Good Morning friends. I am so blessed that you have stopped by to linked up for “Thankful Thursday”.
Have you picked up the book “One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp yet? She blogs over at A Holy Experience. We are listing 1000 gifts that God gives us daily.
If you have not stop over to her blog please do so, her words will blow you away.
Together we can hit 1000 gifts by embracing each moment that God gives us. Ann truly has helped me to look at every little thing as a gift instead of letting it pass me by.
Wont you join us every Thursday in sharing your 1000 Gifts!

Before we get started I want to take a moment to ask you all to pray for those in the south who have gotten beat up by tornado’s, included us here in NC 2 weeks ago. This is a great time for FEAR to set in. We have to remember that FEAR is not from God, it is from the enemy.  2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” May we rely on His greatness and not let the enemy get a hold on us with all that is happening.


Thank you!
