1000 Gifts:January 2010 - new beginnings

0123.  arising early to meet with a Friend, a Savior, a Mentor, a King, a Father to see what He has for me today.

0124. the quietness of early morning - when all are dozing through the last few minutes of sleep.

0125.  God's Word being fresh every time it is read - renewing the mind and bolstering the spirit.

0126.  Eric - a man from a heritage of faith - sharing, admonishing, encouraging, and supporting his flock day after day - because he loves Jesus.

0127.  an opportunity to sit under an excellent Bible Study teacher - one who takes so seriously the task of leadership - and does a God honoring job of it.

0128.  questions from my 5 year old - about faith - and Jesus, and heaven, and sin... seeing his faith grow

0129.  sweet hugs from my Chops - wanting to snuggle inside momma's big blue robe - to stay toasty cozy for a few more minutes of morning.

0130.  the brisk cold of winter

0131. the smell of coffee

0132. God's grace - sufficient for all humanity - personally for me.

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows.

Number 130-- it's *killing* me... too much, too much, I say! Twelve degrees is *way* beyond my comfort zone! And the wind, oh the wind-- don't get me started! I'm ready for spring in a majorly big way :)

Ah well, keep me posted on your adventure... living, learning... one day at a time.

Walking with you with much, much love,
