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.

May 9, 2012: Free-falling Joy

3 gifts found in the dark:
  • the sleeping form of my husband next to me in bed.
  • the quiet of night.
  • God's presence.  "Dark is the holiest ground, the glory passing by.  In the blackest, God is closest, at work, forging His perfect and right will.  Though it is black and we can't see and our world seems to be free-falling and we feel utterly alone, Christ is most present to us, I-beam supporting in earthquake."  Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts
