100 Gifts Week – Of dreaming and long drives

This week, I’m focusing on a lot of things that I’m thankful for. Please, in the comments, share even the smallest gifts that you’ve noticed today. This will be the final installment for this week – but I continue to write gifts each day so I’m constantly seeing God’s presence. Give it a try!

  1. new jobs for friends
  2. discovering new favorite songs via pandora
  3. praying for a person you don’t know
  4. a warm house
  5. a break in the rain for a commute
  6. looking forward to a meeting
  7. utilizing technology
  8. my day job
  9. my night job (fiction)
  10. dreaming in novel scenes
  11. trying to sleep in to dream of more scenes
  12. doggie footprints in the middle of the night
  13. repeating gifts I’ve already mentioned
  14. hearing just the right song on a morning commute
  15. the wilderness of my life to draw me closer to God
  16. shortcuts using the keyboard
  17. excitement for meeting with an old friend
  18. long drives alone with music blaring
  19. getting tickets at a discounted rate
  20. brainstorming Christmas gifts for family and friends
I’ve kept a (fairly) regular gifts journal ever since my friend, Caitlin Muir, began doing her Thankful Thursday posts in the style of Ann Voskamp‘s One Thousand Gifts. If you haven’t heard of or read One Thousand Gifts, do so – now.
