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.

December 9, 2012: Away in a Manger

3 gifts ugly-beautiful:
  • my son's church, ugly in a rented school gym, but beautiful in worship and mission
  • the manger, ugly in crudity but beautiful in purpose. and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2:7
  • rain for the drive home, ugly, but beautiful when compared to snow for safety and nerves
