One Thousand Gifts-23

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.10.2006

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

576. Thank You God for Your help in finishing this manuscript. I can feel Your power when I stop and pray.
577. Thank you also to all the friends who are praying for me to finish!
578. I rearranged my scene index so now I think I have a better feel for how the climax is going to go.
579. I was really good and only ate half of my Vietnamese sandwich for lunch. It was perfect because I took longer to eat it, so I was just as satisfied as if I’d eaten the whole thing. Those sandwiches are yummy!
580. The Candy Apple tea from is really good! I think I will order more of this and the Candy Cane so I can drink it after the Christmas season ends.
581. I exercised yesterday! I think that means I’ve exercised every day this week!
582. Captain Caffeine was nice enough to go get our dog’s ear cleaning solution from the vet today so I wouldn’t have to go later this week.
583. I love the cozy feeling of being inside a warm house while it’s raining outside. The sound of the rain is nice.
584. I did some of my accounting today.
585. I’m finally getting the hang of Quicken. I’m just not sure if I’m getting all the categories right.
586. A kid from our church youth group took a video when they were bowling together of another kid named Tim, and the video was 3rd on the Yahoo video page.
587. I have the privilege of reading an excerpt from a high school girl’s testimony today at her baptism.
588. I got a few Regency romances from some new authors. Maybe I’ll find a new favorite author!
589. I love being able to pray for people (and with all my blog readers) on Sundays
590. I get a $100 rebate on the Microsoft Office 2004 software I just bought!
591. I got paid for an article I wrote! Money is always a good thing.
592. I’m on day 24 of my Bible in 90 Days. The kings of Israel and Judah are kind of depressing because only some of them obeyed God, and most of them didn’t obey Him completely, probably for political reasons like, oh, the entire nation would rebel and depose them if they got rid of all the pagan shrines. I just got to the Assyrian exile, which is just a sad point in the Israelite history.
593. Just watched a bunch of CSI Miami episodes on A&E. That show is so addictive. Now Captain Caffeine is thinking of Tivo-ing CSI NY to try watching a few episodes of that, too.
594. Baked Lay’s are yummy and good for my creativity, even if it’s not exactly great for my hips.
595. I’m figuring out how the Genesis contest is going to come together next year, which is nice to know. I just like being organized.
596. I switched mice on my desktop computer so now it’s a bit easier for me to navigate around.
597. My desk is clearer than it’s been in a long time, which makes me happy.
598. My calorie count yesterday was in a good range.
599. I’ve been better about not giving my dog as many “free” scratches without making her do something first.
600. I’m exciting thinking about what I’d like to do once I finish this manuscript.


  1. okay I know I can't count... but the last time you did this you were in the 500s and this one is what's up with that?????

  2. Aw, what happened? Sheesh. My Word program must have screwed up.
