The Joy Dare

Ann Voskamp is at it again.  She is beginning all over and listing another 1000 gifts in 2012.  This is my first list of 1000 gifts, but I have signed on to do it.  Ann's broken it down into just 3 gifts per day and to help you, she's got a lovely list you can print out with prompts for each day of the month.  Find it, and sign up to win a fabulous gift package from Ann here.

So, according to the prompts, here are my three gifts today.

76.  From my bag:  A pocket calendar decorated with my 3 yr. old granddaughter's art.  I see it and think of her little hands gripping the brush and swirling the paints.

77.  From my refrigerator:  From the door of the frig, actually....a picture of my dad, snapped at my son's 7th birthday.  It was just two weeks before he died from lung cancer and getting into our house, which was above a garage, took everything he had.  He refused to miss his grandson's birthday.

78.  From my heart:  Instead of the normal January gloom, my heart sings.  I am in love with life and all that God is showing me.

What about you?  Will you join the Joy Dare?

I have the book, and I keep meaning to give it another go. What a wonderful challenge. I will not officially join, but she has me thinking. And thankful.

God is putting her and YOU to good use.

Dawn, I just jumped in today since I'd already been listing things.

Ellen, I keep telling everyone to do their own thing. The community Ann's built is great, but you have to use it the way it works for you. If it feels like a chore you're not doing it right. And thanks...you make me blush. ;)

I jumped in. And I'm enjoying purposefully noticing things that make me smile and saying thank you!
