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 28, 2012: Becoming One

3 gifts entwined:
  • the maple tree in my backyard.  When we moved to this house over 18 years ago, my husband planted a couple of maple trees in the backyard.  They have grown up together, trunks entwined to make one beautiful tree. 
  • my heart with my husband's and ours with God's. I don't know how couples who are not believers face hard times in their marriage. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 3:12
  • the body of believers.  When it functions as it should, it is the most beautiful and powerful extension of God.  I am blown away by 700+ people who have joined a prayer support group on Facebook for someone I know who is battling cancer.  Those 700 people likely have 700 different views on things theological, yet they are united in purpose to lift this woman up before God's throne of grace.  Glorious!
