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.

September 17, 2012: The Beauty of the Ugly

3 gifts ugly-beautiful:
  • the cross, literally ugly as sin. but there could be nothing more beautiful as that instrument of torture and death where my Savior died for me
  • the approaching thunderstorm
  • the remaining three zinnias in a vase on my kitchen counter, with brown edges and fading petals but clinging to summer's joy
