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.

July 17, 2012: Lessons and Truths

3 gifts learned:
  • stories of one just returned from Africa
  • this truth: "I'd seen our orphans suffer without complaint as they endured fevers, cuts, hunger, death of family members, and many other things.  I wondered if that was why Jesus said we must become like children if we are to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  They accept whatever is offered them and learn from it."  Passport through Darkness: A True Story of Danger and Second Chances, Kimberly L. Smith
  • Watching Downton Abbey makes an evening of scrapbooking even more fun :)
