One Thousand Gifts-8

Captain’s Log, Stardate 11.24.2006

I’m participating in the “One Thousand Gifts” list from Christian Women Online. Click on the picture to find out more about it.

176. That my friends understand that THIS IS NOT IN ANY KIND OF ORDER, YOU DOOFUSES! (ROBIN!)
177. Barb, for the beautiful elements she makes and posts for people to download for free
178. That we can pray to God for things as serious as our health and our jobs, but that we can also come to God for things like our writing, book deals and contracts, and release dates. I recently saw an e-mail about this—God says to come to Him for everything so why not for our books? They’re written for His glory.
179. The kids in my church youth group, whom I don’t want to name by name because of internet security, but who are God’s gift to me in so many unexpected ways
180. The parents of my youth group kids, who totally love the Lord and seek His will for their children
181. The staff workers of my church youth group, whom I also don’t want to name by name because of internet security, but whom I’m very grateful for
182. My youth/associate pastor, who is just incredible in organization, vision, implementation, and teaching
183. My church head pastor, who always makes everyone in the congregation very welcome
184. My cute fat red teapot. It’s cute, fat and red. What’s not to like?
185. The tea cozy I made out of my red tea towels and a rubber band—cheap and useful
186. Adagio teas, especially their Irish Breakfast blend
187. Republic of Tea teas, especially their Peach Ginger tea
188. My Hawaiian hardwood cutting board, perfect for small jobs
189. My bamboo wood cutting board, which is so nice to use, not too heavy
190. Cloth handkerchiefs—so much heartier than tissues (sorry, is that TMI?)
191. My 60 GB iPod, which acts as my harddrive backup
192. My iPod Nano, which is perfect for when I go walking with the dog
193. Joy Williams’ Genesis CD
194. Natalie Grant’s Awaken CD
195. Homemade dark chocolate truffles!!!
196. cordless phones—thank you God for inventing these
197. rechargeable batteries—ditto
198. flash drives—double-ditto
199. long scarves—soft, feminine, warm, or alternately silky, feminine, filmy
200. fireplaces during the wintertime—love the smell and the warmth
