Counting Out Loud (1-24)

Do you remember when I wrote about Counting to One Thousand? Well, it's a new year, and I was thinking it might be nice...it might be a helpful exercise for this selfish heart of mine...to make it a daily habit. To list things as they come and...even...to share them with you. So I'm daring to take the "Joy Dare," and I pray that as I count the gifts that my Father bestows on me, my gratitude will equal greater joy in Him.

Three things about Myself I am Grateful For:

#1 The touch of keys that open my heart


#2 Songs overflowing from within


#3 A hunger and thirst for righteousness

#4 A Gift Outside: Privileged to see Colorado



#5 A Gift Inside: Little girl's carefree bouquet



#6 A Gift On a Plate: Just crumbs, proving delight in a meal...and a happy, healthy child holding it
