This blog is my response to The Joy Dare by Ann Voskamp, author of the book "One Thousand Gifts". Every day (hopefully) I will be recording three things that bring me joy, three gifts from God, three things that I am grateful for.

March 2, 2012: The Joys of Spring

3 gifts green:
  • a comfy green T-shirt I'm wearing tonight.
  • bougainvillea bushes in bloom.  I just learned today that the flowers are not the colored part of the plant.  The flowers are tiny and white hardly noticeable in the midst of the brilliantly colored bracts (just like poinsettias), the leaves are green.  Whatever the parts are called, they are altogether lovely.
  • the green of spring.  It does my soul good to see the earth springing back to life. A sign of hope, of new life after the cold and death of winter. We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4
