I started leading this bible study tonight - One Thousand Gifts Bible Study - A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp.
Nine of us met tonight to share and learn.
I look forward to a time of slowing down, being intentional, checking my attitude and increasing my gratitude.
Session 1 - Attitude of Gratitude
Can I write down the gifts I have been blessed with? Can I do every day till I have counted 1000 then continue? When I start to intentionally look in my life for blessings I find them everywhere. When I write them down the invisible becomes visible. Providing me a place I can go back to in difficult times to remember how blessed I am.
One point I picked up this session was giving thanks is the other side of prayer. Sometimes prayer becomes a list of my needs but a gratitude journal becomes the list of blessings I have received.
We started our gratitude journals tonight and one of my blessings - Friends and Family.
