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 30, 2012: A Sacrifice for Joy

a gift given, made, sacrificed:
  • time given to play Uno, a game which, as it turns out, needs no common language except laughter
  • cake made to celebrate our last evening together before the move tomorrow
  • fear sacrificed for joy as I realize reluctance to say goodbye has replaced hesitancy to say hello


  1. I just giggled when I saw this... I played uno last night too! :D

    1. Did you count it as one of your gifts?
