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.

April 20, 2012: Joy Stashed

a gift stacked, stashed, stilled:
  • pillows stacked on shelves today when I went shopping with my mom.  I've been looking for quite a while for new pillows for my couch and found some that were a bargain.
  • my plans for the evening stashed when my husband called wondering if I would join him for dinner to entertain two Chinese visitors he is hosting this weekend.  They were so tickled to visit our house and see how an American family lives.  I feel extra blessed after seeing our home through their eyes.
  • my worries stilled upon reading this passage this morning from Psalm 73: Whom have I in heaven but you?  And earth has nothing I desire besides you.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (verses 25-26)
