So I'm not really very good at keeping up at this blogging business. But as of late, I have found new reason to resurrect the writing. Through God's kindness, I happened across a blog called "A Holy Experience" authored by Ann Voskamp. The words I have read there have ministered deeply to my soul and inspired me in many ways. I may never get to meet this dear lady face to face on this side of heaven, but I will continue to glean from her wisdom and exuberance for life as she continues to share it.
One of the most simple yet remarkable things she is passing on to me and to so many others is the idea of counting 1000 blessings or gifts from the Heavenly Father. Giving an account of our praises. Writing it down. The idea of counting our blessings is nothing new. How many of us do it? I mean really count them. List them out, weekly, daily, hourly..... how might it change the way we see our lives, the way we view God, the way we live?
I don't know the answer, but I'm going to try to figure it out. I'm going to start counting. I will count daily, writing them down on paper, transferring them into cyberspace on Mondays. Monday is known as Multitude Monday among the Gratitude Community.
