 Good Morning sisters!

Today is Thankful Thursday! I love reflecting every week what I am thankful for. The Lord is awesome and giving Him thanks is what its all about!

James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change”

If you have been following Thankful Thursday for some time you know that we are reflecting on Gods gift daily by writing out every week 22 gifts that God gives us daily. How close to 1000 are you?

Do you know Ann Voskamp? She is the writer of “One Thousand Gifts” and she blogs over at A Holy Experience.  She has been a blessing to me and she really challenges me to dig deep in Gods word. 

I pray that you will visit her blog and check out her new book “One Thousand Gifts”, you will be humbled, touched and changed by her words in this book. She has away with her words and you truly think deeply with every word she speaks. 

If this is your first time stopping by for Thankful Thursday, no problem you can start sharing your gifts right where you are. Take a moment to link up below and put our Thankful Thursday button somewhere on your post and link back up  here. I enjoy blog hopping to visit and see others sharing their gifts.

Taking time out to fully grasp ALL of Gods gifts that He gives us daily will change how you look at your life. You can find a gift in every moment when you embrace it with God.

Colossians 3:15-17″ And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word and deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

May you Dare to LIVE FULLY right where you are and embrace God’s gifts all around you daily! —Ann Voskamp
