Yesterday I listed my shoes as my thankful gift. I’m going to add to that today. I mean I am really blessed with excess in the gift department in what I have to wear.
I read a story one time. When a missionary went to another country to share about Jesus, a man asked him why he had so many shirts. The missionary had 5 shirts. He believed he was really doing without. The national said, “You only need 2 shirts. One to wear while you are washing the other one.” I think of that story often when I go to my closet.
721. I have a small amount of jewelry. A few really nice pieces but most is costume jewelry. But it couldn’t mean more to me if it were diamonds and rubies! I’m sorry this one doesn’t show up better. It’s a turquoise cross my Mom bought me for my 40th birthday. One of my very favorites! I’m thankful that I have this now that my Mom is gone, it just means that much more to me.
722. The husband bought this for me at “Noah, Sight and Sound Theater” in Branson! We were dating and he had gone to Branson with some of his family and when he came home he gave this to me! I’m thankful that God let me meet a man who lives his life to serve Him.
723. When I first started the Joy Dare by Ann Voskamp, I saw this necklace at a craft sale and it reminded me of my commitment to write down 1000 Gift’s that I have been blessed with. It is a wonderful reminder of my many many blessings.
724. Our world is in turmoil. I am crushed by the news I hear. My heart breaks for the sin in the world. I hold fast to the promise that God loves Israel. This is His chosen country. I pray for Jerusalem:
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:“May those who love you be secure.May there be peace within your wallsand security within your citadels.”For the sake of my family and friends,I will say, “Peace be within you.”For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,I will seek your prosperity.Psalm 122:6-9
One day, we saw 2 trays of jewelry from Israel at an antique mall. I fell in love with this one and purchased it. It reminds me daily to pray for God’s chosen people.
