And Ann's Joy Dare, came at just the right moment. I've been counting for years (plural) now, and had fallen in a rut. This Joy Dare is like a spark to my gift-seeking- like a little kid on a treasure hunt- I'm on a mission! And it is glorious! And I'm not alone- there are hundreds who have signed up on Ann's blog, and my very own husband has taken the dare (he can't say no to a dare :) ). Hopefully he will post about that soon!
seeking the Joy-Giver everyday (excerpts from gifts #5336- #5371 ):
-- glorious fort inspiration
-- tucked into our own fort reading The Magic Faraway Tree together
-- light reflecting from edge of communion cup- light and life- swallowed down and making me whole
-- "there is no shadow in Your presence"
-- a sudden break in the clouds- light that caught me and warmed me
-- light and dark skin tones... He loves all the children of the world!
-- a true champion of missions!
-- a man wholly available
-- sitting down to breakfast with Matt
-- a gift that is sour: Monday came too quick- goodbyes- sad little boy weeping in my arms
-- 3 things that are yellow: golden evening sun pouring in the backdoor
-- lemonade on a warm afternoon
-- happy yellow flowering tree on the edge of the hill
something above you,
something below you,
something beside you
what are you thankful for?
