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 27, 2012: The Gift of Redemption

3 gifts redeemed:
  • a routine day at work.  Redeemed by contagious joy.  One of my coworkers brought his young daughter in today and behind the closed door of my office, I could hear him playing with her in the hall, she shrieking with delight as her daddy chased her.  
  • creation.  Redeemed by the long months of winter.  Liberated by the warmth of spring to new life.
  • me.  Most of all me.  Redeemed by the very life of my Lord and Savior. Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us. Luke 1:68-69b
