Counting to 1000

"And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Ephesians 5:20)

1000 gifts... my list continues one blessing at a time...

11. homecomings
12. memories captured in a photograph
13. the intricacy of a snowflake on my car window
14. Mr B's embrace
15. the youthful energy of son #2

16. enduring love - as evidenced by my parent's 50 plus years of marriage
17. the comforting sounds of home
18. long, hot showers
19. the red cardinal that made our yard his Winter home
20. date nights

May you recognize the gifts that God gives you today~


  1. I wanted to thank you for sharing Laura's blog a few days ago. I am quite taken with it. The photo of your parents brought a tear to my eye. Thank you for sharing your 1000 gifts from God. I need to start one. Blessings to you Joanne!

  2. Wow, I recognize your dad...but your mom looks so different. Great photo. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love your list, Joanne, and the photo of your parents is beautiful.

    On another note, I am somewhat concerned that you are paying such close attention to the details of a snowflake that is ON YOUR CAR WINDOW!! (ha ha!!)

    Andrea :)

  4. I guarantee I was not driving while I was looking at the snowflakes on my window! It was when I was getting into my car and an almost single layout of the most perfect snowflakes where on the window. I actually looked at them for a few moments and marveled at the details - just amazing!

  5. I know it’s not Ann’s Multitude Monday anymore – it’s Thursday – but there are just a whole lot of gratitude lists to get through!

    First – my fave from your list was – 19. the red cardinal that made our yard his Winter home (we have them in St. Louis year round – that RED – unmistakable – there is something about birds that just kind of makes us happy isn’t there?)

    Thank you for this – made me smile.

    God Bless you and all of yours this day.


Thank you for your lovely comments!
