Oh, the love of a true friend. Just amazing.

How to Keep Hoping for Things that Seem Impossible

or  the story that absolutely blew our minds — and our hearts.

Happy June!

Research shows counting just 3 gift-blessings/day increases happiness by 25%

Why yes, please! Come on a scavenger hunt for God’s gifts every day?

Why bother?

Why bother keeping a gratitude list of His gifts?

Because if you keep a gratitude list, you  Increase your happiness by 25%(Who wouldn’t want a quarter more happiness!) (McCullough et al., 2002)

Who doesn’t want all that? Just three gifts a day.  … that habit of discontentment, it can only be driven out by hammering in iron that is even sharper —The sleek pin of gratitude.” …. ~ {One Thousand Gifts}

How to Count Gifts?

~ Print out the whole year of Joy Dares — put on your fridge, have it at the dinner table, over the kitchen sink. Have a family scavenger hunt for His gifts everyday and enter to win a Nikon D90 camera. Check out the free #1000gifts App … for iPhone or iPad… the (free) #1000gifts app is like your own mobile gratitude journal to snap photos and record notes of your gifts from the Giver. So many so loving it.  Blog your 1000 gifts, or tag #1000 gifts on Instagram, or join us on Mondays and link up to the list on your blog, or record a legacy of your 1000 gifts in the One Thousand Gifts 60 Day Devotional

And, if you’d like to be entered into the monthly draw for a JOY BASKET  (including a $100 Amazon gift card), share your gifts everyday in the Facebook Gratitude community and come the end of the year (after recording only 3 gifts a day/1000 gifts) … be back here to enter for a Nikon D90 camera! Give thanks to Him in the assembly!

And what would you say about yourself? Perspective.

Hey Soul? Today: Just — Less. Stressless. Fearless. Fretless. Grace is weightless.

“With less– there is more of God…” Mt. 5:3MSG.

The Less Life is the More Life:
Love regardless. Live selfless. Walk fearless.
Worry less. Need less. Buy less.
Bless.
#PreachingGospeltoMyself

[excerpted from our morning devotions in our little Facebook community where every morning we share a word like this to encourage each other & #PreachGospeltoOurselvescome join us?]

That’s all for this weekend, friends. 

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
