1000 Gifts

God's blessings continue . . .


52. More tulips. As I pull in and out of the driveway during these busy, busy days, those tulips make me smile.



53. My bloggy friend, who praised God after a difficult week of almost blinding herself and dodging tornadoes. Happy birthday, Dawn!

54. A long-awaited nature study. (I'll tell more in a future post).


55. A date with my man at the symphony.

56. A fun day at the track. Amazing weather. Seeing my daughter work hard toward a goal. The result was first place finishes in all four of her events, the 1600 (set a team record), high jump, and two relays.

57. That she doesn't take her self too seriously. She wears silly mismatched knee high socks to swim and track meets. I would have never been so carefree at thirteen.


58. My son's spontaneous good deed for a stranger. It may seem like a small thing, but when dealing with autism this was an encouraging sign.

59. The courageous soldiers who risked great danger yesterday. I can't imagine.

60. For all our soldiers and their families.

61. The leadership of two presidents and their administrations over the past ten years. Some things are just beyond politics.

62. That regardless of what evil comes and goes in this sinful world, God is in control.

The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth;

you founded the world and all that is in it.

Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne;

love and faithfulness go before you.

Psalm 89:11, 13

The Sovereign Lord is my strength;

he makes my feet feel like the feet of a deer,

he enables me to go on the heights.

Habakkuk 3:19


  1. Amen, well said.

  2. I should have clarified -- we already had our date at the symphony last Friday. It was wonderful. : )

  3. date nights and tulips! yes! great list! blessings to you

  4. Every time I visit your space, I walk away blessed! Thank you, Kellie, for these peeks into your home and heart-- *they* are truly a gift!

    Have a wonderul, wonderful week, and keep enjoying those tulips!! Aren't they simply grand this spring??!

  5. Love the socks. Nope, wouldn't have done that myself, either, but it is the "in" thing around here to wear crazy unmatching socks, and it makes for confusion when folding laundry!
