Can I Joy Dare You? Week 10
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.
I have to admit that I had trouble focussing on some of these clues this week. Particularly on the loud one. We are so quiet down here that there isn’t too much noise. Although I admit I just found one – the dishwasher – it is irritatingly loud. Day isn’t over yet – just getting this post set up for Monday – so I will keep my ears open for the rest of the day – loud.
March 4 ~ 3 gifts hard to give thanks for
- a sinus headache – spring must be coming
- a grandbaby who has a fever (then we find out croup) PS He is much better.
- sore nose from new glasses
March 5 ~ 3 gifts found
- found time to continue my memory work
- found help from hubby to fix my photo frames for the art show
- found another frame I needed from Costco
March 6 ~ bent, broken and beautiful
- My new glasses – just don’t feel right
- breaking of my heart – to hear a young woman who needs a lung transplant
- being able to create – made a children’s craft with tissue paper
March 7 ~ 3 gifts found in the kitchen
- plentiful water
- enough food in the fridge
- a loving hubby who cleans up the kitchen
March 8 ~ 3 gifts loud
- thunder in the desert – a big boom this morning and a few during the day
- my dishwasher (I love it but it is so noisy)
- my oven (I love it but it is so noisy when I turn it off the fan continues to make an irritating sound)
March 9 ~ 3 gifts carved
- I carve an apple every morning – Braeburn apples, very inexpensive in Arizona
- we love stir fry so I chop lots of vegetables
- some day I want to learn to carve soapstone. Right now I am going to try to carve a piece of soap to be a Tadeo Turtle. We’ll see what happens.
March 10 ~ 3 gifts in Christ
- “In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples” (Luke 14:33, NIV). We are learning about this in Experiencing God – to be able to give up everything for Jesus.
- Knowing that, “it never works. God does.”
- “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” (Ephesians 3:20, NIV).
There were not too many clues that lent themselves to pictures for me this week so I thought I would leave you with some great wonder shots.
