One Thousand Gifts: January 3, 2010

I discovered a new linky that I thought would be perfect to link up to with this new year and my new commitment to renew my spiritual journey.  I found it over at Butterfly Wishes and Wonderland Dreams.  

One of our verses on our wall is "Rejoice in the Lord always." Philippians 4:4.  I am ashamed to admit I rarely take the time to rejoice in the Lord and in His many blessings.  I am so much more apt to find something to complain about or worry about.  I want to change that so badly.  I want to be thankful and have a grateful heart. So I am starting this new year with my new Bible Study, my renewed commitment to my Lord and Savior, and this weekly post linked at A Holy Experience.  

This new year brings so much to be thankful for

  1. I am so thankful for my Lord and Savior, that I have a Lord who is forgiving and loves me through my struggles.
  2. I am thankful for a loving husband who helps with the children and around the house.
  3. I am thankful for the fact that the Wii is again working so I can exercise.
  4. I am thankful I also found my Aerobic DVD so I can have some variety in my workouts.
  5. I am thankful for the Blogging to Bible Study challenge.
  6. I am thankful that our church made available the NIV Daily Bible to help me stay on track with my Bible reading this year.
  7. I am thankful for my girls and the way they enjoy exercising along side mommy.
  8. I am thankful for the developmental milestones that Hannah is reaching (may I remember this as she continues to get into more and more things as crawling is coming soon.)
  9. I am thankful for fellow bloggers who share such great, inspirational linkys.
  10. I am thankful for my camera and the ability to record memories.
And that is my list for now because I still have two posts to finish over at my main blog and work on my Bible Study and lesson prep.


  1. I'm so grateful for this linky :) and grateful for new beginnings! I love your list of blessings! I pray that your renewed spiritual journey will be a joyful one.

    I look forward to getting to know you better.

  2. I love it! I just started counting gifts and it has been such a blessing!

    in Christ,
