Blessed by 100 Gifts...
It's amazing how once you start writing your gifts from God, you will actually find blessings in the smallest of things. Like this morning when I saw a dragonfly hovering just above the road in front of me. A truly intricate and amazing creature!
My One Thousand Gifts list is now up to 111, but I'm only going to go up to 100 here on my blog. Let's begin for today...and finish:
81. Helping Jasmine set up her own blog page.
82. Being able to soothe Jasmine's emotional hurts.
83. Beautiful friends who pray for me from afar.
84. Jasmine getting our breakfast ready in the mornings.
85. Having as much patience as I'm humanly able while having a sprained neck.
86. My electricity account being in credit prior to going into winter.
87. A caring manager at work who eases my heart when I feel guilty for not being able to go into work due to my beck.
88. A loving friend who encourages me to seek alternate treatment for my neck.
89. Soaking in a lavender and eucalyptus oil bath.

There are, and will be, many more gifts that God will present to me on a daily basis. I am thankful that I have eyes to see, ears to hear, skin to feel, tastebuds to taste and a nose to smell the wonders that abound!
