One Thousand Gifts

I have really enjoyed this book (so far) and it has already made a difference in the way I view everyday life.  I seem to live in the "fast lane" in life, getting things done (in a hurry), getting the boys dressed (in a hurry), getting supper on the table (in a hurry), and getting the boys to Sunday School (in a hurry). 
Nothing in life, really worth-while happens in a hurry.
I'm afraid I have a tendency not to "stop and smell the roses" but to hurriedly take a glance at them as a I jog through life. Everyday when I wake up, I want to count my blessings. Count the ways that Jesus has shown that He loves me by all the beauty that surrounds me. He has created all of these things in life, even the simplest of things, just for me. To show me that He loves me.

I found out about the Bloom Book Club by reading "Bring the Rain" by Angie Smith. If you would like to join in, click here for more information.

Disclaimer: I do not agree with the author's view of theology in chapter 2. However, I can glean great information from the rest of the book.

  1. I just started this book, too, and I'm planning on participating in the book club. I can already tell it's going to be a life changing book. Like you, I tend to live life in too much of a hurry! :)
