Can I Dare You? Week 3


As I continue to count the gifts I feel like I have been on a scavenger hunt seeking new things. A wonderful week searching and looking. Thanks so much to Ann Voskamp for leading this journey.

January 14 ~ 3 Startling Graces of God

  • I am in a Bible study called Bible Babes and we are studying In the Grip of Grace by Max Lucado
  • God fully understands me. From Jesus Calling,”Rejoice in the relief of being fully understood.”
  • I found a new blog called Gracelaced.

January 15 ~ One thing you wore; one thing you gave away; one
thing you shared

January 16 ~ 3 witnessed blessings

  • I got a lovely email from a daughter about my grandson learning to babble words that actually sound like words
  • Listening to my husband’s laugh

January 17 ~ a gift bringing laughter, prayer and quiet

  • I went to Bible study and the Bible Babes make me laugh a lot
