Inspired by Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts, I am listing things that I am thankful for. I hit 261 yesterday. I like this discipline because it gives me practice in something I do very poorly on my own.
Here are some of my latest entries:
249 red tulips and Abdullah chocolates for Mother's Day
250 my weakness and fear draws out your sympathy, Lord.
254 lily of the valley in a small canning jar
255 sleep on the couch to mend my deep weariness after Abigail's surgery to remove tonsils and adenoids
256 sore leg to remind me of my frailty
257 Joseph Alleine's Useful Questions to direct my repentance (see next post)
