1000 Gifts: Life and Blessings

There are so many things this week... I don't know where to start.   Unfortunately, there are no beautiful pictures this week... just words of remembrance.

0040.  a time to get away with women to share and heal

0041.  "wonderful, the matchless grace of Jesus"

0042.  the knowledge that Jesus was with me from the very beginning and didn't ever leave me for one second.

0043.  leaving my garbage at the foot of the cross - never to be picked up and carried by me again!

0044.  the offer from my Father for life and blessings and being able to pass it on to my children and grandchildren

0045.  the beauty and wisdom of a 78 year old friend who loves the Lord and has walked in His path

0046.  FREEDOM!!!!!!!

0047.  the confidence that the Father loves me and doesn't leave me the way I am

0048.  being encircled by caring women praying over me, my family, my life, my future

0049.  holy forgetfulness

0050.  the sweet voice of the Lord

0051.  and a verse impressed upon my heart....

"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you.  I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life that you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God,  that you may obey His voice, that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days, and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."

Deuteronomy 30:19-20
