1000 Counted!

I really did it.

I reached a goal.   1000

Gifts opened this year that I never imagined on January 1, 2012

I’m being vulnerable to anybody…the polar opposite of who I’ve been. 

I’m writing and blogging…starting to live out a dream???  Looking ahead…what does God have planned?

Grateful for God’s grace and I’m being small.



Oh what a God Moment….  I was thinking of changing my music to George Winston but right before I was about the change my Pandora music feed, one of my absolute favorite songs, The Revelation Song by Phillip, Craig and Dean started playing.  It’s always been a powerful worship song to me so I didn’t change it.  I kept writing.  I counted.

#997, 998, 999… and the last verse (my favorite) of the song begins as I type in #1000.

“Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder 

At the mention of Your Name                                                                                 

Jesus, Your Name is power                                                                                        

Breath and Living Water                                                                                            

Such marvelous mystery.”  

I’m so awestruck.

I’m so filled.

Eyes filled with tears. Knees hit the ground.

On this cloudy afternoon all of a sudden the sun breaks through the clouds and shines through the window on me.


The Revelation Song playing…and I remember my “31 days of Little Revelations” challenge I’m in the middle of right now.

“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD God Almighty,

who Was and Is and Is To Come!

With all creation I sing,  ‘Praise to the King of Kings

You are my everything and I will adore You.’” 

I’m speechless and so small.

Counting 1000 gifts…what a gift.

  1. Congratulations!! Here's to 1,000 more. :) So happy for you. :)

    1. Thanks Tammy!!!! I so appreciate your comments! Blessings to you!

  2. I say this to anyone who will listen. Being thankful for the daily things that God does is one of the most powerful things a person can do to build up their faith. When we can see God at work in the day to day, it gives us confidence that He will work on our behalf when the storms come. Keep watching God work! Blessings, Linda
