A few hours later the two bees ran into each other again and the first bee asked the second bee, “How did it go?” “Fine,” said the second bee. “It was everything you said it would be.”
The first bee then asked, “Hey, what’s that thing on your head?” To which the second bee replied, “It’s my yarmulke. I didn’t want them to think I was a WASP.”
“God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘Thank you’”? (William Ward )Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”(From James 1:7) One Thousand Gifts http://www.aholyexperience.com/
I was looking over my cumulative “1000 gift list” and discovered I’ve made plenty of goofs along the way numbering my gifts. It started all the way back with two #60s plus other repeats. I’m busy and it’s too much trouble for me to worry about getting the numbers straightened out so I’ve decided it doesn’t matter to me. I’m actually beyond the number it says I’m on so I’ll reach 1000 before it looks like it. I plan on going way beyond 1000 (I love this habit of my gratefulness list!) and can see I am just getting started recognizing and thanking God for how He LAVISHES me in His blessings every day. If you guys reading this haven’t started your own gratefulness list, what do you think about starting TODAY? You are going to LOVE it!

851. My response is to get down on my knees before the
Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all
heaven and earth. I ask Him to strength you by his
Spirit – not a brute strength but a glorious inner
strength – that Christ will live in you as you open the
door and invite Him in. And I ask Him that both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all
Christians the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.
Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length!
Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full
in the fullness of God.
