Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

One Thousand Gifts - January 9

Whew!  I've been in Kindergarten four days and I'm exhausted!  I love it though, and have learned so much.  I have much to be thankful for every day both at home and away from home and I don't want to let the opportunity to keep recording graces to slip by.

I've mentioned "walk" twice and take such joy in the time in prayer, exercise, soaking up the sun, and being with my dog.  We have had such unseasonably warm weather since Christmas - even hitting 70 a couple of days!

  1. This is what JOY is about - finding those little moments of blessing and gift to remind us that He is all sufficient and MORE than enough. :) Thanks for sharing!
