Saturday

This morning I read chapter two in A Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp- and let me just say I think I underlined, highlighted, or circled every single word she had to say…it was incredible…I can’t wait to read more tomorrow.

Here’s a couple of my favorite things Ann said…

“Gratitude for the seemingly insignificant- a seed- this plants the giant miracle. The miracle of eucharisteo… do not disdain the small. The whole of life, even the hard- is made up of miniature parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole.”

“I know there is porr and hideous suffering, and I’ve seen the hungry and the guns that go to war. I have lived in pain, and my life can tell. I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks for early light dappled through leaves and the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.”

And here’s the happy puppy I shared my morning with….
