You may have heard of Ann Voskamp and her book, '1000 Gifts: a dare to live fully right where you are' which is wonderfully about waking up to joy all around you through constantly giving thanks. It is an amazing, inspiring, and focus-changing book which I have loved reading. This year I took the Joy Dare and counted 1000 things that God has given me that I am thankful for. I have this little ink-stained book filled with these random gifts which I have written in thanks to God. Today I wanted to encourage you to take the Joy Dare this year. Download the PDF from the blog and count three joys each day of the year, for the whole year, to make it up to one thousand gifts! And there's even a camera giveaway waiting for you if you count them all!!

So this year, why don't you slow down and see the beauty of the grace of all you everyday blessings, and count them, keep counting and keep seeing.

(I know this is off the usual topic but I really wanted to share today. And I am sorry for the lack of posts already, and more craft related are coming, promise!)

  1. What a nice idea...and I bet most people's joys aren't flashy or expensive, just taking time to enjoy the little things
