One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward" (Colossians 3:23-24 TNIV).

"All of us would like to believe that we could accomplish one brave, selfless act for God and for His kingdom. But it takes greater courage to faithfully accomplish the daily, thankless tasks of everyday life for Him- being a father [or mother] to our children, a good husband [or wife] to our wives [or husbands], building His temple one laborious block at a time" (Lynn Austin, "Among the Gods" Book 5).

Being thankful for "one laborious block at a time".
Continuing to give thanks...
