One Thousand Gifts (con't)

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God" (Colossians 3:16).

Continuing to live in gratitude for so many things...

-the first Sunday of advent and preparing our hearts and minds to celebrate the birth of our Saviour
-friend's daughter's life and friend's husband's life spared after a terrible car accident
-soaking in God's Word and listening to His voice
-prayer warriors
-prayers and encouragement of others
-friend opening up her house for a prayer ministry/Bible study
-Deborah's play date
-encouraging and positive learning dialogues with our children's teachers
